FRIGO Coldstore Logistics opened a third cold store in the Port of Hamburg on Tuesday in response to increasing demand for deep freeze capacity.
Due for completion in August this year, the new facility will offer a total cool capacity of 40,000 pallet positions on 18,000 sq. metres.
The new building will use LED lighting activated on demand by a motion control system and will incorporate an efficient space-saving concept facilitating stacking of up to eight levels. Frozen food will be handled on 20 loading ramps initially, before a further 10 are added, which will be cooled to five degrees guaranteeing a continuous cold chain.
The storage extension will also provide extra office space and generate 12 new jobs at FRIGO.
FRIGO has operated out of Hamburg since 2005.
