Beneficial insect
Delivering safer crop management
JAG UFS has been involved in shipping beneficial insects for over 30 years. We cover all the UK and mainland Europe for beneficial insect logistics utilising our own vehicles for collections and offering dedicated small vans and articulated refrigerated vehicles alongside our international air freight services. Since 1981, JAG UFS has been building strong relationships with the best airlines. They understand our customers’ needs and act as an extension of our business, offering solutions even in complex circumstances.

The JAG UFS mission has been to be the preferred global supplier for the crop management industry, we achieve this by supporting growers to maintain their yields and quality by providing innovative tools and solutions for their transport requirements and providing the highest quality service to our customers, ensuring shipments arrive in perfect condition.

JAG UFS works with an international network of closely allied distributors to ensure that we are ready for our customers’ needs and requirements. We provide our customers with an unrivalled service and the highest standards of support by investing in our staff; their knowledge is the key to the optimisation of your supply chain.

We work very closely with suppliers to ascertain exact requirements and ensure all the necessary paperwork, licenses and vet certificates are in place prior to shipments being collected. Due to the nature of beneficial insect consignments, many airlines will class these as live animals (AVI). Correct documentation is therefore vital to facilitate the swift movement of goods from origin through to destination. Our experienced operational team is equipped and trained to the highest level in order to ensure shipping documents are completed correctly and to overcome any issue that might arise.

We have extensive knowledge and experience within the beneficial insect sector and support many leading companies internationally. One of our clients is a leading supplier in this sector, providing a range of invertebrate biological control organisms which are used for the control of insect pests in a variety of situations. As a global company, we support them in 30 different countries including their main markets of Europe and North America. Their primary targets are the protection of crops; vegetables, ornamentals, soft fruits and berries. Their beneficial insects enable growers to provide the highest quality products and maintain yields without the need for damaging pesticides and herbicides.

We are driven to build personal relationships with our customers to ensure that we have a full understanding of their business needs. Taking the time to develop these personal relationships, along with our ability to adapt, is what sets us apart from our competitors. It is important that we add value to our customers business, we are not ‘simply a supplier’, but an integral part of their day-to-day business.

Monitoring your entire supply chain
The relatively short lifespan of beneficial insects dictates a 100% commitment to the timescales laid out by our clients and their suppliers, we achieve this by carefully monitoring the entire supply chain. Furthermore, with this product requiring accurate temperature control, the need for a dedicated point of contact becomes even more apparent and necessary. JAG-UFS are therefore able to offer one point of contact providing the client with the peace of mind that their goods are being cared for throughout the whole process.
