December 2016 | ROUPAS chooses SARMED as a logistics service provider
Roupas A. Iraklis Ltd operates and holds a leading position in raw coffee imports from several countries (Brazil, S. Africa etc.). The sales network consists mainly of the largest wholesalers and HO.RE.CA. points. As part of its development, but also because of imminent excise tax to be imposed on coffee products from 1.1.2017, the company decided to strategically change their logistics model from in-house to outsource (3PL). Therefore, after completing its research on the 3PL market, ROUPAS chose SARMED as a partner for the provision of logistics services.
With the use of storage space of about one thousand square meters in SARMED’s facilities in Mandra under customs warehousing, ROUPAS will service at least 800 tons of permanent stock. In addition to storage services and inventory management, SARMED shall also provide ordering services and will be responsible for unloading pallets of goods, stacking and accounting management.
Given the specialization of SARMED (among others) in the product category of food and beverages, as well as due to high expertise and decades of experience in customs warehouses, systems and procedures, ROUPAS’ choice was inevitable. The management of SARMED would like to warmly thank ROUPAS Ltd. for its trust and welcome the new partnership by committing to high quality of services.
