Kraaijeveld positive about import process for containers thanks to new working method via service Cargo Controller


“A challenge we face as an organisation is collecting and collating information in a central location so that the import process is disrupted as little as possible”, says Maria Lagendijk-Casteleijn of Kraaijeveld.  

Based in Maasland (Netherlands), Kraaijeveld serves global clients in the gastronomic wholesale, processing industry and retail sectors.

“In the pilot phase, we joined the Secure Chain, the partnership between business and government for a more secure and reliable release and collection process for import containers.

By using the service Cargo Controller, we try to make the import process as quick as possible. Aspects like security in the chain, efficiency and insight into the process are important for our organisation.”

“We have observed positive changes with the new way of working thanks to the Secure Chain. For instance, we are able to easily share data, but also to quickly and easily view the status of the import shipment. And that makes life easier. Because we control all the processes ourselves, the release and collection of import containers is simpler, faster and more transparent thanks to the Secure Chain!”
