New Operational Logistics adopted by Multilog in Uruguaiana (RS) and is also applied for handling potatoes, onions, garlic and grains.
The border between Brazil and Argentina has gained a new area from the Brazilian Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Supply (MAPA), to inspect products of plant origin. Multilog opened New Operational Logistics at the Uruguaiana (RS) unit, which reduced the final time in fruit release operations by up to 60%. The agile model is also applied to potatoes, onions, garlic and grains.
With the new area, the goods now have four cold rooms, a covered platform to simultaneously check several trucks, laboratory and an inspection room for the Brazilian Ministry of Agriculture. The process foresees that the products coming from Mercosul imports already enter Multilog as released by foreign intervening bodies.
All vehicles travel to the platform where the MAPA inspection is carried out and released by the Brazilian Internal Revenue Service. “There are over 40 collaborators, nine forklifts and two electric cars dedicated to handling and collecting goods, in addition to all the equipment and supplies necessary for the operation to take place as quickly as possible,” explains Darlan Souza, General Frontier Operations Manager at Multilog.
