NewCold seeks second freezer site

Wakefield, UK: NewCold is looking for a second UK site for a deep freeze warehouse, the company says.

The company’s deep frozen warehouse in Wakefield, opened in spring lat year, is operating near to capacity, the company says.

The Wakefield plant handle’s 3m pallets annually. It has 4 million cubic metre volume and can store 143,000 pallets. The site is served by NewCold’s bespoke-design moving floor trailers and handling system (pictured).

Jon Miles country director, NewCold said: “Not only does the facility operate at around 50% of the energy consumed by conventional deep-frozen storage sites, but also, given the proximity to the motorway network, 90% of NewCold’s delivery points can be reached and returned from within a driver’s shift. This improves customer service and keeps ‘food miles’ to an absolute minimum.”
“With the success of the Wakefield facility and the increasing demand for a quality temperature-controlled logistics offering, NewCold are actively looking for a site for their second UK facility,” he said.
In 2015 NewCold made its first foray into the UK, opening the automated, 40m-high cold storage plant on a green field site in Wakefield, Yorkshire. The operation includes 50 tractors and 80 temperature-controlled trailers – many high-volume double-deckers with auto-loading. NewCold also operates in France, Germany and Poland to provide a pan-European frozen food supply chain.
