Facing uncertain local equipment stock levels, Halpern Riego turned to Dachser Argentina to manage the logistics of importing drip irrigation equipment to the country. In fact, they entrusted Dachser Argentina to transport more than 12 containers from Spain, Turkey, Israel and other regions. As a result, Halpern Riego is able to offer irrigation solutions to their customers throughout Argentina without disruption or delay.

Interestingly, any visitor to Mendoza or Argentina's northwest interior will be surprised that it is possible to grow anything at all, much less world-class Malbec wines. The entire region resides in the shadow of the Andes mountain range resulting in a dusty, dry countryside where it rarely rains. A lack of water can reduce yields and crop quality or destroy whole harvests. In turn, this can have a devastating impact to producers, growers and the local economy. Given this challenging backdrop, drip irrigation equipment is essential in order to maintain consistent water flow to these unpredictable arid climates.
“As an industry leader of irrigation solutions, the partnership with Dachser Argentina is a natural fit for us,” said Mr. Adrian Lijteroff, Supply Chain Manager at Halpern Riego. “They bring proven global logistics knowledge and expertise, allowing us to be well positioned to successfully deliver our drip irrigation solutions to the wine production and agricultural markets in Mendoza and throughout Argentina. Thanks to Dachser, we can continue to offer our best-in-class equipment systems, which could make all the difference in wine yields and crop output projections.”
With over 20 years of experience as a global leader of irrigation solutions, Halpern Riego has been committed to investing in Argentina with the establishment of a local site in Mendoza. It offers innovative irrigation technologies that efficiently control water delivery in vineyards and agricultural fields. These systems can ensure better yields every season regardless of crops, climates, soil type or topography.
“At Dachser Argentina, our broad logistics expertise instills confidence in our customers that their businesses can run smoothly, and, in this case, essential irrigation equipment can continue to be accessible in Argentina,” added Mr. Fernandes.
