Dachser Brazil Optimizes Tetra Pak's Customs Clearance Process— Delivering Award-Winning Efficiency

The multinational food packaging and processing company was ranked first in Viracopos airport efficiency ranking


Campinas, Brazil, November 5, 2019 - Global logistics provider Dachser is proud to announce that its optimized customs clearance process was key to Tetra Pak - the multinational food packaging and processing company - being recognized with a first-place airport efficiency ranking by the Viracopos Airport in Brazil. The specific award acknowledges Tetra Pak as number one in the Special Regime Segment of the Logistics Efficiency Ranking of Linha Azul in Viracopos/Campinas (SP) in the "Immediate Boarding" category.

With an exclusive customer-oriented team, Dachser is responsible for 100% of the company's import and export authorizations in Brazil. "We have a dedicated team of professionals focused on the operations of our customer, TetraPak. Our goal is to properly forecast and anticipate opportunities and challenges prior to the arrival of the cargo, reducing the release time and ensuring better logistic efficiency," comments João Paulo Caldana, Managing Director from Dachser Brazil.

Tetra Pak noticed progress in the efficiency of its operations, achieving the best time in customs clearance for several months in a row. "There are great challenges to the operations, but we can, in our partnership with Dachser, optimize them increasingly. We are confident that excellent results such as these will continue to be achieved," concludes Fernanda Gomes, Foreign Trade Manager of Tetra Pak.

Monitoring the processes, identifying bottlenecks and improving methods were the determining factors to ensure the company's position in the ranking, according to the Tetra Pak executive.

"Optimized and coordinated internal processes, articulated and timed with the customs procedure at the airport are key to success. Together with Tetra Pak, we focus on operational and communication processes and increased efficiency," concludes Caldana.
