Danone Research has two main missions - to drive future product innovation by developing new technologies and ingredients, and to be the centre of excellence for production samples, clinical and consumer tests. Danone was looking for a 3rd party logistics partner that could provide the support and expertise of a Global network with local control.
The SEKO France team installed MySEKO and SEKO’s logistics services to pilot operations throughout the Danone organization. This includes worldwide air freight export including dry ice cartons, import of samples, official destruction of end of life samples, brokerage and phytosanitary checks, shipment of demonstration and training materials worldwide, and providing road freight, express and critical delivery within Europe.

MySEKO is saving time and paper, and gives Danone's staff accurate logistics reports at their fingertips. SEKO is also delivering expertise to handle refrigerated products and specific brokerage requirements, giving fast and reliable service 7/24/365 to meet all Danone’s needs.
