Frigo Group also unburdens Pastry Bakery Horizon

Pastry Bakery Horizon, a new customer since the beginning of April for Frigo Group. In terms of logistics, the producer of a wide range of frozen pastries and desserts will from now on be supported by ‘the logistics service provider in frozen foods’, which has branches in Nieuw-Vennep and Geldermalsen.

According to Horizon’s commercial director Martin Engelen, this ‘unburdening’ can partly be taken literally. “Just like for many other companies, it is not an easy time for us because of the corona crisis. We supply to retail, catering and airline companies, but also to schools in France, for example, through partners. All in all, a substantial part of our turnover has been lost.”
Due to circumstances, the Velp-based bakery, which is part of the Horizon Group, was already looking for a new logistics service provider before the corona outbreak. Engelen: “Thanks to Google, I came into contact with the Frigo Group. It felt right from the start. Trusted. I immediately had the impression that our quality products were in good hands with them.”

Good choice
This resulted in a contract that, according to Engelen, provides a service with a price/quality ratio that he is very satisfied with. “With Frigo Group Transport refrigerated/freezer trucks, our entire stock was transported in a week and a half to the Frigo cold store in Nieuw-Vennep, where we now reserve the pallet spaces we need. As soon as our production recovers with sales, that number can increase significantly.”
In addition to storage, Horizon has also entrusted the conditioned transport of its frozen pastries and desserts to the Frigo Group: Frigo Group Transport refrigerated/freezer trucks drive from Velp to Nieuw-Vennep every day and also provide a large part of the transport from the Nieuw-Vennep cold store to customers of Horizon products. Engelen: “Based on the first weeks, I think that we have made a good choice with the Frigo Group. I only hear positive things from my colleagues. It is a good feeling to be able to focus on our core business, knowing that we don’t have to worry about storage and transport.
