Back in 1950, the family business Transports CHABAS was founded in Cavaillon.
The company started by focusing exclusively on controlled temperature fruit and vegetable transport in Provence, but underwent a rapid period of diversification and expansion in the 1980’s.
In 1984, the company needed to diversify. They expanded by acquiring a specialist fresh flower transport company, whose headquarters were based in Nice.
In 1986 and with the same desire to diversify and expand, the company absorbed and integrated a southern France-based fresh produce transport specialist into their Cavaillon headquarters.
In 1989, the Fresh Produce transport department relocated to larger offices nearer the production sites, renting and outfitting 300m² in Ste Florence in the Vendée. This sector grew robustly, and a bigger installation in Saint Fulgent became a necessity. The department moved in 1992.
The company’s distribution remains concentrated in the south, along the Mediterranean Basin.
FROM THEN ON, THE COMPANY HAS NEVER STOPPED GROWING :
Currently, the company is active in four fields (Early Produce, Fresh Produce, Flowers and Wine) and boasts 12 logistics platforms, located mainly in the south-east of France.
Transports CHABAS remains a family company. We place a high priority on the quality of the work we do, which has a direct effect on our clients’ loyalty, our sustainability and our growth.
All of our men and women share our values. Every day, they fulfil their tasks with care, helping us improve customer satisfaction every day.
