Haven helps a seafood sourcing company find reliable providers that ensure on-time deliveries, short-term contracts, and manageable rates.

An environmentally conscious seafood company’s business is steadily growing, expanding to more and more countries and offering a wider range of responsibly farmed fish products. To get fish from the farms to supermarkets, the company needs two things: a reliable provider that can do short-term contracts and lots of refrigerated containers.

These containers—called reefers—make up a growing segment of the ocean-freight market and, due to scarcity, are subject to very high markups from freight forwarders. In-transit cooling can require everything from electrical power points to diesel-fueled generators. They also need proper ventilation, and cleaning them is a mammoth task. Because of this scarcity and such precise requirements, freight forwarders tend to markup the price of reefers—and customers, due to lack of choice, are willing to pay.

The company needs a single provider willing to engage in short-term contracts and able to steadily supply of reefers that will be collected, cooled, and transported properly. Fish that arrives to the markets on time and fresh means more growth and better margins; spoiled products raise costs and damage the company’s reputation.

Haven’s competitive marketplace is crucial to finding the right provider at the right price and ensuring a smooth logistics operation that can deliver the company’s products on time. With Haven, freight costs dropped by 20 percent.

With an expert provider and Haven’s platform, this company can focus on advancing the seafood industry towards a more responsible, environmental-friendly future.
