The operation of agroindustry transportation makes up a sensitive element of the Agro-food supply chains. This is because it can make the difference between success and failure for producers or entrepreneurs linked to agribusiness. That’s why this operation must be deeply studied and planned to gain the best results.
Besides, in general, the transportation of food, in which products are transported raw or processed, can be a very difficult action. That’s why at BFF International we offer unique industrial solutions for the agricultural equipment market. This, in turn, contributes to reducing risks during this operation. In fact, our reliable professionals have demonstrated their effectiveness and experience in the agribusiness field at a worldwide level.
Likewise, we adjust every logistics solution for each mode of transport depending on load. This means that we can adjust to every means of transportation such as air, ocean, land, or rail. In this sense, we make logistics solutions work for the agricultural industry, whether in project logistics, product procurement, or distribution.
The supply chain and logistics within the Agro-food industry
Supply chain and logistics processes within this industry could be difficult and time-consuming. For its part, the process of the Agro-food supply chain has become an ever-growing chain of services available. Other features you can expect from BFF include long-time deliveries, centralization of specialized production systems, and the keeping of low load rates.
On the other hand, the logistics of Agro-food products imply that operators face taking responsibility for all their actions throughout the entire supply chain. These actions include safeguarding the quality of all products and/or the welfare of livestock.
We must also create a sustainable solution to the clients, that is, an accessible service. In this sense, at BFF we offer the highest quality with no high prices. We do this, of course, without compromising our quality standards.
Importance of logistics for agribusiness
Over the years, organizations all around the world have learned the importance of logistics for the agro-food industry. This is because in any part of the world it’s vital that the quality of the raw materials is kept at all times and that they reach the final destination in a consumable state.
In addition, efficient technology within the logistics process is essential for the success of this process for retailers and producers. Also, for this operation to be successful, the entire process must be effectively monitored to ensure that the correct products are given in the correct conditions, to the correct place, and within a reasonable time. Likewise, the profitability of the logistics service must be kept for all parties involved.
Grain supply chain logistics
Grain transport is one of the best known “gears” of the agricultural system. This operation covers the movement of merchandise from the farm to the warehouses for export if needed. Additionally, producers, packers, processors, distributors, retailers, and foodservice operators are the ones responsible for this move. These actors must ensure that an integrated farm-to-fork method is established from the outset and continued throughout the chain. This concept not only applies to grains but also all forage industries.
Agricultural policy improvements
Recently, agricultural policy has set new goals. Some of them are environmental protection, sustainable agricultural practices, food security, animal welfare, and broader perspectives for rural development.
Besides, new indicators and statistics have been created to give information about these topics. For example, more data about the use and impact of pesticides and nutrients have been given. Likewise, another important priority for agribusiness has been to get statistical data that allows us to follow the evolution of organic farming.
Cargo transportation and agribusiness
It’s still crucial that organizations carry out regular investigations. This is necessary if they are to guarantee that the correct, most sustainable logistics supply chain available to them at any given time is being achieved and used. For example, it’s important to take a look at the packaging you currently use for your products.
Applying more beneficial and creative models in your day-to-day logistics will be crucial to benefit the overall economic development of a business. Additionally, there will be environmental benefits to be discovered along the way.
