AGRO Merchants Porto has been awarded the IFS Logistics certification, passing with the highest grade. The certification demonstrates the firm’s continuous commitment to providing the highest quality of service to their customers and improving internal company processes.

IFS Logistics is an internationally recognized standard for auditing organizations operating in storage and logistics, that sets a level of expectations for transparency throughout the supply chain and covers multiple areas, such as management responsibility and quality, product safety and realization of service amongst others, with specific requirements for storage and handling conditions.

Raul Fores, Managing Director of AGRO Merchants Iberia, commented: “We are very proud to have achieved the IFS certification at our Porto facility. This emphasizes the hard work and dedication of our team to continuous improvement and a high standard of service to our clients.”

AGRO Merchants Porto has the capacity for 16,100 pallet spaces. The cold store’s wide range and flexible solutions for fresh and frozen products contributes to the company’s value offering to its clients.

The benefits AGRO’s Porto facility offers to the group’s clients are market-leading export and import transit times, strong inland transport and distribution network across Iberia and integrated solutions for multiple commodities and temperatures.

One of AGRO’s strategic goals is to become the leading cold storage and logistics service partner in the Iberian Peninsula. In addition to the Porto facility, AGRO also operates three coldstores in Portugal – Lisbon, Leixões and Sines, as well as three sites in Spain – Algeciras, Barcelona and Valencia.
