The subsidiary in Brazil had its definitive start-up at the end of 2009. This new initiative follows the long-standing international vocation of Fischer & Rechsteiner, placing itself alongside the subsidiaries that have been active for some time in Cyprus, Lebanon and Tunisia.
The basic idea of this initiative was the consideration that Brazil is considered by Fischer & Rechsteiner as a strategic location in Central-South America, an area in which about a third of the company's business is concentrated. As it is known, it is the most important country on the continent, with strong growth potential so to place it among the main countries in the world within a decade.
At the end of 2019, thanks to an agreement with a local operator, F & R-BR has significantly expanded its range of action, offering customers and its agents a wide range of services including customs clearance, road transport of full loads and split deliveries, storage and logistics in specially equipped warehouses. The company carries out its business in several operating points in the country.
