- Temperature sensitive food transport, from ultra-fresh to ambient
The EFN is your partner for temperature-controlled group shipping and loads; our members take care of shipping packaged foods in all consignment sizes, packaging types and non-frozen temperature ranges on behalf of food manufacturers and retailers. Within Europe, we transport meat and sausage products, dairy products, wines and spirits, baked goods and confectionery, convenience and delicatessen products and cereals to trading companies, catering companies, wholesale service providers and the food processing industry.
- Efficient management of logistics processes for your shipments
Save time! Digitally controlled processes and seamlessly coordinated transport chains are the basis for fast, efficient delivery services throughout Europe. Export shipments crossing more than one border are fast-tracked through the Eurohub to arrive at their destination one day earlier – in some cases even from Friday to Monday depending on the countries and distances involved. Our service enables food suppliers to ship their products to large parts of Europe even on Saturdays, involving minimum transit times and one transhipment fewer.

You can rely on our services! We have decades of experience in logistics for the food industry, with a portfolio spanning break-bulk, part- and complete shipments as well as contract logistics with industry-specific value-added services. We are familiar with the ins and outs of local markets; in many countries we are among the top logistics providers for temperature-controlled food transport. Our vivengo product family offers a range of standardised transport services tailored to the needs of the food industry; our products vengospeed, vengoflex and vengofix enable you to choose the desired transport speed and delivery date for your current needs, giving you added certainty in planning your production and distribution operations.
