It’s still -25 degrees in Russia

[ June 5, 2019   //   ]

Maersk has broken ground on a new cold store in St. Petersburg. The facility at the PNK Park Sofiyskaya offers 23,700 sq m, with 35 docks and can serve up to 200 trucks a day. Maximum storage capacity is over 50 000 tonnes.

Some 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 sector.

It will offer separate storage chambers for frozen produce (-25°C), chilled (+2/+8°C), as well as for bananas, which require a specific temperature of +13°C.
