The delegation included representatives from CAP - Logistica Frigorificada, Confiance Log Armazenagem e Distribuição, Friozem Armazens Frigorificos, Log Park Armazens Gerais, and SuperFrio Armazéns Gerais, and was sponsored by Mayekawa Brasil.
On the first day, the group visited Axionlog, Frio Dock, Frigorifico Oneto y Cia, experiencing a large variety in the size and operation of facilities.
On September 4, the group toured a Carrefour distribution center with an up-close look at their cascade system, discussed in detail by a representative from Mayekawa Brasil. The trip ended with a final tour at Grupo Surfrigo following by a traditional Argentinian meal hosted by the facility.
