A Playground Exceeding Your Perspective

Their World

From their headquarters located at Noordereiland in Hoorn, the Netherlands, Source Food monitors refrigerated transport of its meat products. Dozens of vessels shipping hundreds of containers worldwide. Source Food concludes delivery contracts for purchasing and selling its meat and poultry in all corners of the globe. 

Be Inexpensive, Even with Small Profit Margins

Their Challenge

The company operates in a complex playground. Clients may originate from a given continent, while their order could be located in another. Simultaneously, market prices are subject to continuous change. Concluding a contract – something that rarely does not involve negotiations – should take place quickly.
