Fresh fruit and vegetables
Deliveries per day
With our surprising assortment of high quality products, our goal is to enrich the Netherlands with the different flavors of the various cultures that live in it.. The demand for a new taste experience has increased enormously in recent years. We can meet this demand through our customer-oriented organization, established distribution networks and the recruitment of new agencies.
WWe understand that you feel responsible for the product needs of your customers. SAFE BV not only meets the demands of you and your client, but is also specialized in the field of developments in the market. In close consultation with you, we broaden our vision together, in order to create new demand and stimulate your sales.
No storage but transit
Our logistics are geared towards ensuring that the products ordered by you are present in our warehouses as short as possible. We strive to use our warehouses as a transit station instead of a storage facility. The shorter the storage, the smaller the risk of quality loss.
SAFE BV is continuously focused on optimizing the logistics process. ‘No’ is the only product that we do not wish to sell. The quality of the products is also something that we will not compress. You can help us by placing your orders on time and optimally aligning them with the wishes of your clients.
Your order is put together in our warehouse in the early morning. During the composition of the order, our employees once again check the quality requirements of our products. When the order is fully compiled and meets the quality requirements, it is prepared for transport in order of delivery.
After compiling the orders in order of delivery, they are loaded into the relevant truck and leave in the morning hours. The daily routing is planned as efficiently as possible. As a result, we prevent loss of time on the one hand and unnecessary pollution and load on the road network on the other.
Quality on wheels
SAFE BV manages its own fleet with a number of large and small trucks in order to respond flexibly to the transport demand. From our head office on the Groothandelsmarkt in Rotterdam we serve the entire “Randstad” (Amsterdam, Rotterdam, The Hague and Utrecht) and surroundings. We also provide direct transport to Eindhoven, Breda, Tilburg, Den Bosch, Apeldoorn, Arnhem, Nijmegen & Antwerp.
For the other parts of the Netherlands where SAFE BV does not yet have its own distribution, we work together with carefully selected partners in distribution. We continuously monitor the quality, care and customer-friendliness of our partners. In this way we can guarantee a fast and reliable delivery for all our customers throughout the Netherlands.
Efficient and effective
Our planning department ensures efficient and effective delivery. This way, fixed routes are driven on fixed days, so you always know where you stand. Of course we are also flexible to allow any urgent deliveries to take place in consultation with you, so that your clients are served at any time.
Freshly ordered is freshly delivered
Because we often work with fresh products, we have organized our distribution network in such a way that the products you receive also arrive fresh. SAFE BV ensures that the time span between your order and the actual delivery is minimal. Your order will be assembled and loaded in the very early morning, after which the trucks will be on the road. This way you receive the freshest products and your customer enjoys the best quality of food.
