The Vandemoortele Group uses a joint logistics network with partners NV Metro and Panalog SA

Metro is a Belgian transports company, founded by the Vandemoortele Group in 1955. Since then, Metro has grown to be a major European player in temperature controlled transports and provides logistics services to both Vandemoortele and numerous other food producers. We rely on Metro for the transport of our refrigerated and frozen goods throughout Europe. 

Panalog specialises in the storage and distribution of frozen products in France and has a network that covers the whole of the French territory. Panalog supplies our French customers and is responsible for the storage and distribution of our frozen goods. In 2020, Panalog signed the ‘Objectif CO 2 ’, committing to a three-year action plan to reduce its CO 2 emissions. In 2021, Panalog reported a decrease of 6.7% CO 2 eq/ton for transport and mobility compared to 2020.
