Supply chain solutions
From local to regional to global; and vice versa
At Barentz we deliver tailored logistic solutions, that meet your needs, on a local, regional or global level. We offer an extensive supply chain network, with a local warehouse in every country we operate. Some of these warehouses are being used as regional HUBs, which means that our principals can deliver to a central point and we manage the distribution to our local warehouses or to our customers directly.
For products requiring special climatic or safety conditions (e.g. pharmaceuticals) we offer highly specialized warehousing and transportation conditions.
From 24/7 stock management systems to last minute customer requests for next day requirements, our flexible supply chain network structure enables us to offer any solution you want.
Building trust throughout the entire supply chain
A good solution is characterized by far more than just technical specifications. Safety, quality, reliability, efficiency, traceability, and value are also integral elements. Our supply chain is dedicated to constantly delivering the highest quality in terms of products and processes.
Barentz represents high quality producers whose quality systems are amongst the most advanced in the industry. These quality systems provide us with guarantees that our ingredients are safe. We take an active role in engaging with our suppliers and customers to help them comply with the latest quality standards and applicable regulations.
Being a vital part of the supply chain, Barentz adheres to and implements relevant internationally recognized quality systems, including BRC Agents and Brokers, GMP+ and IPEC-GDP.
We distribute industry-specific certified products, like Organic/Bio/EKO, Fairtrade, RSPO, RTRS, DonauSoja or Secure Feed, on request.
