Integrated solutions in Paraguay from Imperial Logistics

Imperial Logistics is expanding its river transportation management capabilities and the company has developed an integrated solution for its inland shipping routes in South America – encompassing state of the art transportation and warehousing management solutions. A fifty percent holding in the Baden S.A. handling company in the Paraguayan port city of Concepción forms the basis for this. Working with its joint venture partner, CIE S.A., Imperial Logistics has reactivated the port on the Rio Paraguay, which had been idle for more than 15 years, and turned it into an enlarged warehouse and handling centre for cereals, soya, fertilisers and other agricultural products. The joint venture company, Baden S.A., has either overhauled the relevant handling infrastructure like warehouse silos, tipping ramps for trucks and conveyor belts or installed new items.
