Cold Chain Logistics

One of the major services we provide is the transportation of temperature – controlled goods. Such cargo deserves much more and Cedars ensures product quality is well-maintained through efficient and timely delivery of your refrigerated shipment.

We have got you covered with our cold chain logistics services. This involves transporting temperature – sensitive products through logistical planning and refrigerated methods in order to safeguard your shipment’s integrity.

Any organization selling perishable products primarily considers cold chain logistics in order to deliver uncompromised quality goods. With our experience and expertise on reefers and logistics, Cedars ensures that customer satisfaction is met. Some of our work with transportation of reefer containers include moving food products, pharmaceuticals, both locally and internationally to destinations such as Lubumbashi, Lilongwe, Kolwezi, Lusaka, Kigali, Bujumbura and many more.

How Cedars does it:

Cedars offers shipments of 20 and 40 feet refrigerated containers capable of carrying up to 26 tons of perishable products. These containers are electronically plugged into a generator (gensets) powered by trucks, terminals or distribution centers in order to control the temperature within them. With this process, Cedars ensures shorter loading and offloading periods and significantly reduces the risk of damaging the cargo. 

Through our knowledge and expertise in the technology of Reefers, we assure that units are perfectly insulated to maintain air circulation that is temperature-controlled by an independent refrigeration plant. With this we are able to maintain your cargo at an optimal temperature by adjusting it from warm (13°C), cool (2°C), frozen (-18°C) to deeply frozen (-29°C) in order to meet your cargo needs.

Land Transportation

Cedars handles both import and export cargo in Tanzania and across bordering countries including Congo (DRC), Zambia, Rwanda, Malawi, Burundi, Kenya, Uganda, through effective land transportation. Our absolute independence provides us with complete freedom and flexibility in the selection of carrier solutions like road and rail as we simultaneously anticipate the ideal prices and finest solution for our valued customers.
