AGRO Merchants Group, a provider of cold storage and logistics solutions, has announced a significant expansion in Rotterdam which it says will reinforce its services to the fresh produce sector.
In a press release, it said ADB Cool Company, part of AGRO Merchants Group since 2015, officially opened its new facility expansion in October 2016.
“The expansion adds 13 loading bays and 6,000 pallet positions, bringing the site to a capacity of 23,198 pallet positions. This expansion enhances the company’s repacking capabilities through a substantial investment in new facilities, equipment and technology.
“The facility is strategically located near the Port of Rotterdam, which is the busiest port in Europe with an annual throughput of approximately 465 million tons.”
ADB managing director Alex de Brujin said the expanded facilities will allow the company to “further support the fresh produce sector and meet the increasing demands of our clients for storage, packing, ripening and all the other services we offer.”
Other recently completed AGRO Merchants projects include facility expansions in Spain at the Port of Algeciras and in Vineland, NJ serving the Port of Philadelphia and new greenfield sites in Houston, Texas, and Savannah, Georgia.
AGRO Merchants Group owns and operates 55 facilities in 8 countries across North America, Latin America and Europe, with more than 750,000 m2 of cold storage.
