Construction started for Maersk’s new cold store in Rotterdam

With the official ground breaking Maersk has started the construction works for its new large cold store in Rotterdam (The Netherlands). The specialized warehouse for temperature sensitive or frozen products like pharmaceuticals, fruits, meat or fish is located right next to the Maasvlakte II terminal operated by APM Terminals.

The new refrigerated warehouse in Rotterdam is expected to significantly improve Maersk’s cold chain offering not only in the Netherlands, but more broadly across North-West European markets.

Durban precooled fruit in demand

The fruit industry is the largest contributor, by value, to South Africa. Ensuring fruit are kept to the highest quality standards is therefore essential. At Durban, fruits are precooled at our cold storage facility to ensure optimum freshness throughout their supply chain journey and to comply with import laws from other countries.

This process has seen a sharp increase in exports - nearly 10,000 pallets of fruit - proving that precooling is a critical step in the post-harvest cold chain.
