Logistics service provider Eurofrigo has started the construction of a new coldstore on the Maasvlakte development, near Rotterdam. The project is expected to be completed by the middle of this year.
Eurofrigo focuses on the transport and storage of veterinary products from all over the world. The new coldstore is the company’s sixth location in the Netherlands. It is located opposite the existing Eurofrigo facility in the Maasvlakte.
Jeroen Tempels, CEO Eurofrigo, said: “We have chosen to expand our capacity in terms of checkpoints and storage, because we want to work more customer-oriented and offer more flexibility in inspections,”. “In recent years we have seen that customer demand is increasingly focused on VAS solutions. Because of its expertise and adaptability Eurofrigo adopts a dynamic attitude to assist customers in VAS solutions and to offer itself as a strong supply chain partner for the longer term.”
The new coldstore will contain cells with different, individually adjustable temperature zones, and will form part of a complete logistics solution, including customs clearance, inspection and storage.
Eurofrigo says that its checkpoint facility at the new coldstore will help address the new post-Brexit requirements for UK exporters, and will ensure a faster and more effective flow.
