Ryder expands food packaging

Beaver Dam, WI, US: Ryder System has boosted its food packaging and distribution capability by expanding its 30,000sq metre food packaging and distribution centre.

The Beaver Dam Logistics Center serves food manufacturers with distribution, packaging, and production capabilities for frozen and chilled foods. The site has been expanded with a 1,400sq metre, temperature-controlled addition to package refrigerated and frozen foods, vegetables, fruits, and meats.

Ryder also added a packaging line with seven-station blending capability that includes high-speed robotic palletising and automatic and semi-automatic cartoning.

“Increased consumer demand for frozen and refrigerated foods in convenient formats is driving food manufacturers to look for unique and cost-effective ways to better manage how they process, package and distribute their products,” says Darin Cooprider, vice president of consumer packaged goods, Ryder Supply Chain Solutions.
