Bischof and Nagel-Group deepen cold chain cooperation in Switzerland

The food logistics companies Nagel-Group and Bischof have intensified their existing cooperation in chilled and frozen transports in Switzerland with an agreement reached on 1 February 2019.

Bischof is headquartered in Switzerland and operates throughout Europe with around 200 trucks (3 temperature zones). It has a storage capacity of 18,500 frozen pallets and 12,000 multi-temperature pallets. It offers services from collection of the goods to storage, picking, packing, packaging, customs clearance, and delivery to wholesale chains and retailers in Switzerland and Europe.

“To date we have served our customers in Switzerland with the help of several service providers. The cooperation with an experienced, fixed partner offers benefits to both parties,” says Carsten Taucke, CEO of the Nagel-Group. “For instance, this long-term cooperation will result in reduction in empty runs or simplified processes through faster exchange using IT interfaces.

“The Multi-Temperature-Centre we set up in Sennwald in 2012 and our headquarters in nearby Feldkirch in Switzerland offer ideal conditions for bundling the flows of goods for both companies to Switzerland and guarantee reliable delivery,” says Astrid Bischof, Managing Director of Bischof.
