Seafrigo Group becomes the air freight forwarder for all Classic Fine Foods subsidiaries worldwide

It’s official: since June 2024, CLASSIC FINE FOODS, a specialist in the sourcing, marketing and distribution of top-of-the-range foodstuffs, whose mission is to supply the best of gastronomy worldwide to hotels, restaurants, delicatessens, and yachts has chosen SEAFRIGO AIRFREIGHT, one of the leaders in air freight forwarding of temperature-controlled products and dry goods, for both export and import, to handle all its logistics and air freight forwarding operations from France.

This decision follows a logistics & transport tender carried out in 2023. Seafrigo Airfreight becomes the air freight forwarder for all Classic Fine Foods subsidiaries worldwide, as well as for Classic Fine Foods Rungis’ direct customers, for a 3-year contract.

This contract testifies to Classic Fine Foods’ confidence in SEAFRIGO GROUP’s expertise and logistics capabilities.

The sales, logistics, IT and legal teams from both companies worked together for several months to plan and anticipate every detail of this major project.

At the Thiais (94) warehouse, or at the future 7,700m2 logistics site in Rungis – Zone SOGARIS (94), dedicated to perishable goods near the Rungis MIN and Orly airport, Seafrigo Group implements customized logistics solutions, adapted to the needs of Classic Fine Foods Rungis: specific locations (storage, acréage, picking) as well as teams.

Olivier DALLOT, Director of Air Freight – Continental Europe and Africa at Seafrigo Group: « We are honoured to become the logistics and Freight Forwarding partner of Classic Fine Foods. This contract reflects our commitment to providing high quality air logistics solutions and is based on our shared values of quality and customer service.
Seafrigo Airfreight, with its expertise in logistics and air freight forwarding, and its mastery of complex supply chains, will bring its know-how to ensure the distribution of Classic Fine Foods Rungis’ fresh and ultra-fresh products throughout the world.
This partnership is a key step in our strategy to grow and diversify our services for both exports and imports in order to offer cutting-edge air logistics solutions and further improve customer satisfaction.

Christophe LELOUP, Managing director – Airfreight PARIS at Seafrigo Group: « We would like to thank Classic Fine Foods for their confidence in selecting us as their logistics partner. This strong, long-term commitment contributes to the development of our Paris agencies and demonstrates the professionalism of our teams in Freight Forwarding and logistics. This partnership enables us to expand the Seafrigo Airfreight family with the integration of a team of Fine Foods professionals who share the same values of customer satisfaction as our Group.
Classic Fine Foods is a group that distributes a wide range of top-of-the-range products on an international scale, carefully selected on a daily basis. Seafrigo Airfreight and its teams will ensure that the quality of service required by the Fine Foods sector is met, in order to support Classic Fine Foods in its growth.

Dominique LIENHARDT, Director of Operations at Classic Fine Foods Rungis, said « From collection from our partners or delivery to our docks by their carriers to arrival at our customers’ premises, all our products exported from France must meet our traceability and cold chain requirements.
Seafrigo is a long-standing partner of Classic Fine Foods in the maritime sector, and their teams have demonstrated their mastery of our business and our demands for reliability and quality of service in the transport of ultra-fresh, frozen and dry products by air for our subsidiaries and our customers.
Our supply chain for the export of food products by air is now operated by Seafrigo Airfreight from the specialised perishables site at Thiais, where our logistics team operates and which has joined the workforce of our service provider, and soon from Rungis Sogaris. The essential security of these operations provided by this partnership means that we can concentrate on our activities as a central purchasing and product sourcing agency for our customers, with the aim of providing the highest possible quality of service.
