Frozen transport to and from Continent rises

Frozen transport to and from Continent rises

Supply chain specialist NewCold Advanced Cold Logistics is expecting further growth in the volumes of frozen food it handles both into and out of the UK.

NewCold UK country director Jon Miles reports a rise in the amount of frozen food products being transported from the continent to the UK and vice-versa.

“There is quite a lot of product moved both ways but in particular there’s an unbelievable amount of frozen food that comes into the UK from Europe, particularly from eastern Europe, including lots of vegetables, etc,” says Miles.

“For NewCold we’re now working with major ice-cream company Froneri, bringing product into the UK from their European factories. They are based all over Europe but we are predominantly bringing a lot of products over from Germany.”

NewCold has a European network of cold stores in France, Germany and Poland, along with its automated cold store in Wakefield, and a distribution fleet to serve UK food producers transporting frozen food products from the continent to the UK and back again.
