Abstract This report provides the technical results of the second dry run transporting mangoes and avocados from Haiti to the US. For both fruits, temperature has been registered from the moment of harvest till arrival at destinations. Also logistical data like planning preparing the test, time needed for each step, and quality of fruits has been analysed, following the procedures as presented in the Standard Operational Procedures for both fruits. The process was organised together with the two new partners Haiti Mango Consortium and Agriledger, both contracted by MCI for the next phase of exporting fruits to the US. After an introduction chapter, technical observations and remarks are provided for both mango and avocado in the next two chapters, with a concluding last chapter afterwards that provides overall analysis, lessons learned and recommendations. Based on the lessons learned the Standard Operation Procedures (SOPs) will be updated. A major change will be that Collection Points will be introduced as transport from tree to truck cannot be controlled by project partners. SOPs will be updated over the coming months June-July 2019.
