Fact check: truck and rail truck vs. FCL
At Paul M. Müller, we use trucks, rail trucks as well as FCL. For example, the majority of our tomatoes come from northern Italy. There they are processed, packaged and start their journey to our warehouse or directly to our customers on Euro exchange pallets - or now increasingly on EPAL pallets - in trucks and rail trucks. Among other things, we use FCL for our pineapples from Thailand. They have to make a long journey overseas in 20'foot containers until they arrive at our warehouse. Anchovies even arrive in refrigerated FCL, as the semi-preserves are only preserved by the sunflower oil as well as the added salt.
