The Delanchy vision
Opening new horizons
In the Delanchy Group, our business lines reflect our values. The transport of seafood and fresh produce, and accompanying logistics, are a daily challenge that we have been meeting for five decades. Our priority is to satisfy our clients and meet our obligations.
In an ever-changing business sector, we need to be able to open up new horizons, reinvent ourselves each day and together build the Delanchy of tomorrow.
The Delanchy Group has established itself as one of the major players in the transport and logistics of fresh produce under above-zero controlled temperature conditions. Engaging, innovating and developing our network of agencies and our expertise are just some of our priorities when it comes to meeting our commitments to our clients.
In May 1968 in Guidel, Joseph Delanchy, founder of our Group, fulfilled his dream to create Bretagne Transports. With this first agency, the delivery of seafood produce between the port of Lorient and the city of Lyon would be our first business line.
“Frigo Transports” transport agencies and “Delanchy Prestation de Services” logistics agencies offer comprehensive coverage throughout France, within Europe and across the globe.
Flinging the doors and windows of our company wide open, taking on ideas from others and learning from each other is our culture.
Brigitte Delanchy – Managing Director
Each day we prepare and transport seafood produce (40% of our business) and fresh produce (60% of our business, including fruit and vegetables, meat, dairy produce, etc.) for our clients, producers and distributors.
Each day mass distributors, restaurateurs and other independent clients rely on us to deliver to their warehouses, stores and shops.
Our strength is in our humanity!
Our 3,200 employees are at the heart of the Delanchy Group’s development. Human values are our central focus and they help the Group progress with the professionalism and quality of service that have made us stand out since 1968.
Quality recruitment, internal development through ongoing training and improvements in employee skills are our priorities. To provide opportunity for all, each year we update our workforce from our business incubators, taking on young employees on block release and opening ourselves up to new talent.
The Delanchy Group management teams are split between the historic head office at Guidel (56) and the operational administrative head office established at La Gravelle (53).
