MSC get ready for Brazilian Melon Season


As we get ready to welcome a new Brazilian melon season in August, find out how we can put our transport and logistics solutions to your service and help you reach consumers in Europe and beyond.

Melons contain a wide variety of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants and they also make for a refreshing and healthy summer snack.

Brazil, with its favourable climatic conditions, is ideal for growing sweet, juicy melons and this has made it one of the top melon-producing countries in the world, as well as the leading supplier to European consumers. As of today, Brazil exports over 250,000 tons of the flavourful fruit to customers across the Atlantic every year and the demand keeps growing.

As a world leader in global container shipping, MSC has developed a solid expertise in transporting perishable cargo. Building on our shipping and intermodal worldwide coverage, we have been helping farmers and exporters for years, counting on a local presence of over 23 years in Brazil and offering global service with local knowledge, going above and beyond to ensure our customer’s cargo arrives at destination expeditiously and in the best possible condition.

With the melon season approaching, find out why MSC is your trusted partner for efficient and reliable transportation and logistics services, to connect you to consumers in Europe and beyond.

Choose the fast way for your melons

Transporting melons across the Atlantic in pristine conditions is a complex process and MSC customers can find in us a first-class expert. Today, we are the number one shipping line in refrigerated cargo, from Brazil to the world. We offer fast, reliable, and frequent services that connect the country with the main markets, including Europe.

Shipping melons require the highest level of care and specific temperature control to make sure that the product reaches its final destination with the same taste, freshness, texture, and aroma as when it was harvested. At MSC, we follow highly-standardized control procedures to guarantee the best possible transport conditions from pick-up to delivery. Our optimum cooling solutions are perfectly complemented by an unmatched level of knowledge and passion.
