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.
