DSV targets perishables market

DSV Air & Sea in the UK has launched DSV Fresh, an international distribution service dedicated to perishable products, from fruit and fish to pharmaceuticals and drinks.

Michael Hansen, managing director of DSV Air & Sea, said: “Globally, DSV has great experience in temperature controlled air and sea freight services, but traditionally this has not been promoted in the UK.

“To highlight this service and our global experience with perishable products, we have decided to launch DSV Fresh.”

It has appointed George Mead as national head of perishables to run the service. He  has 25 years of experience in the freight forwarding industry and is a specialist in cool chain logistics.
