HAVI’s freight management teams excel at meeting the most challenging customer requirements. For example: perhaps you have to ship 480 tons of beef from Buenos Aires to St. Petersburg. Or transport 150 tons of chicken patties in special reefer containers to Japan. Maybe you require origin consolidation of multiple temperature-controlled SKUs from different suppliers to one destination. No problem. 

Making HAVI's Shipping Services Work For You

We work with strategic partners across our global network to manage hundreds of thousands of freight moves every year safely and smoothly. Well over half of these moves are temperature-controlled, making us the market leader in transporting temperature-sensitive consignments by road, water and air.

With the emphasis on sustainability, we offer multi-modal solutions that combine road/rail options to minimize environmental impact. Using advanced route planning, optimization and freight tracking technology, our team members (or third party logistics providers) consistently deliver the highest professional standards.

More About Our Freight Management Success Story

Quality First: Achieving ISO Accreditation In Record Time

”Quality has always been a priority for HAVI and every day we deliver it to our customers. The fact that our team achieved accreditation in record-breaking time shows that we already have great quality management systems in place today. The work will continue across other areas of the freight management business. ”Tom Forrer, Managing Director,  Asia Pacific Freight Management, Logistics, commenting on HAVI’s internationally recognized ISO 9001:2015 certification for freight management in Hong Kong, Shenzhen and Guangzhou.


Going Greener: Consistently Reducing Our Carbon Footprint

We invest significant time and resources into reducing the impact of our freight management operations. And the good news is that our sustainability strategy is paying off.

In 2016, for example, STI (Deutschland) GmbH, a subsidiary of logistics service provider STI Freight Management, significantly cut its carbon footprint by completely digitizing its road transport scheduling. This reduction – a great example of HAVI’s commitment to living the principles of sustainable business – is even more remarkable given that the business also increased its freight volumes.

We are confident that the measures we have put in place during 2017 will continue to reduce our carbon footprint even further. That’s good news for HAVI, our customers – and our planet.
