After a successful 2009 sugar crop, whereby Panalpina moved approximately 5000 TEU for Cargill Sugar Division, the partnership has been extended by renewing the current service contract with Panalpina Brazil for a further year. The volume forecast for the 2010 crop season is approximately 1000 TEU per month from Santos to destinations mainly on the Indian subcontinent, the Mediterranean and the Middle East.
“The Cargill contract goes in line with the strategy to further expand our business within the commodity markets. The innovative solutions developed and designed together with Panalpina Ocean for the Cargill business shows that our unique and refreshing approach is very much welcomed in the market” comments Daniel Setz, Country Manager Panalpina Brazil.
