Protecting the things that matter, more than ever during the Coronavirus emergency

Protecting our employees and ensuring good customer service and full RPC supply remain our top priorities.

Because of our global operational presence, we were confronted with the COVID-19 at the beginning of the outbreak. Thanks to this early experience, we could prepare and immediately implement comprehensive measures in all our subsidiaries around the globe to protect what, more than ever, matters to us: our people, our customers, the food supply chain.

To protect our employees, we closed our offices globally, and IFCO employees are now working from their homes, with no impact to your service level. At our service centers, strict new protocols have been implemented for an uninterrupted operation. As usual, we wash and disinfect our RPCs for you, according to the highest standard. Our customer service functions without disruption. And, our ample RPC supply means meeting all customer needs nonstop.

Thanks to our preparation and commitment, we continue to fully service our customers, even during these challenging times.

The IFCO Way

The heart of the IFCO Way – even more than our superior products, logistics savings and sustainable business model – is the service we provide. Most members of our field sales force have a background in agriculture, cargo, food logistics or retailing. We are happy to talk about any aspect of your business: to listen, learn from you, and earn your trust. Together we find the best route for solving issues or developing new cost-effective solutions.

Our business is based on trust, in-depth market knowledge, and on providing flexible solutions to best serve you. We also regularly monitor customer feedback and measure customer satisfaction – then evaluate all solutions we have developed to satisfy specific customer requests or needs. We don’t sell products. We work with you to find solutions. That is the IFCO Way.
