NewCold Advanced Cold Logistics is a fast- growing specialist deep frozen warehousing and distribution global player whose world-class systems, energy efficiency and productivity make it stand out from other conventional cold storage companies.
The company designs, builds and operates its own warehouses, utilising its own experience and in-house software systems, in combination with trusted and proven material-handling partners.
Over the last few years NewCold has demonstrated its ability to provide collaborative supply chain solutions for food manufacturers and retailers in the major European countries. By building a series of state-of-the-art cold stores in the UK, France, Germany and Poland the company is now able to provide a fully integrated range of pan-European frozen food supply chain services.
In 2015, NewCold made its first foray into the UK, opening an ambitious, highly automated, 40m-high cold storage plant on a green field site in Wakefield, Yorkshire. The fully automated cold store combines with an in-house national and Euro logistics operation – consisting of 36 new Euro V1 tractors, high-volume double-deck and standard reefer trailers – to minimise handling and maintain cold chain integrity, while keeping ‘food miles’ and harmful emissions low.
“This is a true 24/7 service, offering Day 1 ordering for Day 2 deliveries, plus other value added logistics services, including case picking and repacking etc.” Says NewCold’s Country Director, Jon Miles. “The Wakefield offer is based on a unique model that is markedly different from the concepts that food manufacturers are used to.”
As a logistics provider, Jon Miles believes that the cold chain working together as a group, with openness about targets and ambitions, is the only sustainable way to improve the supply chain in the company’s chosen sectors and adds, “A collaborative approach, with a sustainable solution, is the only way forward.”
