Norbert Dentressangle increases share of perishables market in Chile Just 18 months after its launch in Latin America, the freight forwarding division of Norbert Dentressangle has established its position as a leading provider of perishable airfreight management services for the export of fresh produce from Chile. In December 2012, the company was responsible for handling 1,500 t of blueberries and cherries from Chile to the USA, China and Europe, an increase of almost 50% on 2011. This placed the French service provider in Chile’s top five shippers of perishable products. Norbert Dentressangle has strong relationships with major Latin American airlines including LAN Chile and is LAN’s largest customer for perishable airfreight from Chile to Miami and New York (both USA) and the airline’s second largest customer for other worldwide destinations. Due to high volumes, Norbert Dentressangle also chartered two full Boeing B767s to export blueberries from Chile to Miami FL in December 2012. To support this growth, Norbert Dentressangle has a dedicated team based at Santiago airport and the firm provides a complete service from receipt, inspection, customs management and phyto-sanitary documentation and inspection, as well as palletisation and protective packaging of produce prior to loading.
