Maersk to strengthen cold chain logistics footprint with new facility in Gujarat

The 260,000 sq. ft. temperature-controlled facility at Mehsana will attract over INR 113 crore investment and be used to store frozen processed food items

A.P. Moller–Maersk (Maersk), the global integrated logistics company, broke ground for its upcoming Cold Store facility at Mehsana, Gujarat, in the western part of India. Being built exclusively for HyFun Foods, the brand-new facility will offer temperature-controlled storage solutions for perishable frozen processed food items.

Maersk’s new Cold Store facility will be constructed close to the customer’s manufacturing facility and will serve as the mother Cold Store facility. The 14,700-pallet position facility will be built at the Fanidhar Mega Food Park and will be one of India’s largest single-shed cold stores. The large facility will help the customer store all the cargo in a single facility instead of multiple smaller facilities before dispatch.

Vikash Agarwal, Managing Director, Maersk South Asia said, “Frozen food items need high-quality, unbroken cold chain logistics solutions to preserve their integrity. Our new, state-of-the-art facility at Mehsana will be equipped with the highest standards of temperature compliance, with the customised racking system to suit customers’ exact requirements, and modern technology to ensure top-notch operational accuracy.”
