DSV Fresh is a subsidiary of DSV Air and Sea which provide customers with a tailored, reliable and time-defined solution which safeguards the freshness and quality of customers’ products to the final point of delivery. Transporting perishable goods demands specialized knowledge, reliability and quality. With DSV Fresh, we provide seamless, cost-effective and time-defined solutions via road, air or sea, for your perishable consumer goods.

For customers in the perishables industry, time is of the essence. Produce doesn’t remain fresh if it has been sitting on the quayside for 12 hours, stuck in a motorway traffic jam for 10 miles or left in a warehouse overnight. We operate a modern fleet of refrigerated vehicles capable of carrying either frozen or chilled goods. In addition we can offer single or dual compartment refrigerated trailers and all vehicles are fitted with temperature logging systems which are fully calibrated regularly by the manufacturers.

All of our vehicles are equipped with GPS tracking technology in order for our experts to monitor the progress of your shipments.  All Staff are Good Distribution Practice (GDP) trained and are certified by the Environmental Health Officers Association.

  • Product Rejections – Upon delivery, products and/or packaging which is damaged are rejected and have no value
