Melbourne, Australia: NewCold Advanced Cold Logistics, which opened its first UK automated frozen food coldstore in 2015, is building two new warehouses in Australia - including a chilled one for the first time.
One of the sites, in Truganina near Melbourne, is for frozen goods, and will store products for new customer, McCain Foods, Australia along with Peters Ice Cream Australia, part of the Froneri group.
The 10-year deal, starting in July this year, is part of the food group’s “ongoing effort to improve supply chain efficiencies to help customers meet consumer demands”.
The site, being built by storage equipment manufacturer Dematic, will consist of an integrated system combining automated pallet handling systems using in-house warehouse and control software developed in-house by NewCold.
