RUSSIA: Danish logistics company Maersk has opened a new 23,700m2 refrigerated warehouse in St Petersburg – the largest commercial cold store in Russia using CO2 refrigeration.
Just nine months after construction began in June 2019, the first container has arrived at the new warehouse bringing pears from Argentina.
Approximately 40% of the new warehouse will be occupied by Europe’s leading fruit company Fyffes, with the remaining capacity available for other customers from the fresh and frozen produce segment.
The new facility has a total capacity of more than 40 000 pallets in three chambers at +13˚/+6˚/-25˚C. With 35 docks, it will be able to handle up to 200 trucks per day. The maximum storage capacity is over 50,000 tons.
