NewCold contributres to the UK’s transition to zero emission road freight

NewCold is delighted to be selected as a partner for a feasibility study that will design a future trial of hydrogen fuel cell trucks and refuelling infrastructure in Scotland – supporting the UK’s transition to zero emission road freight.

The feasibility study, named the Scottish Hydrogen Freight Trial, is part of a £20 million investment by the UK Department for Transport and delivered by Innovate UK. It aims to identify early adopters who have a desire to decarbonise their heavy transport. The findings will inform future vehicle and infrastructure requirements.

The results of the study will be shared with Department for Transport and Transport Scotland in a formal study report, with a view to seeing this zero-emission technology demonstrated on UK roads in the near future.

NewCold is proud to be working towards a more sustainable future and excited to play such a key role in re-envisioning the future of road transport. Find out more about New Cold’s sustainability agenda.

Great progress at construction site in Piacenza, Italy

It’s with pleasure that we can share some new pictures of the progress on our construction site near Piacenza, Italy.

The site expects to see the first pallets arriving in Q2 2022.

Our entrance in the Italian market has started with the acquisition of Pacaro in Borgorose, 75 km north east of Rome, now being a part of the NewCold Group. The Pacaro site has 25,000 Euro-pallet locations and the operation includes an automated cold store.

The Piacenza operation will be the first newly built site in Italy for NewCold. There are already advanced plans for a second site near Rome. The geographical shape of Italy makes it necessary to serve our customers from two locations.

The site in Piacenza is of a typical NewCold standard design and will store up to 73,200 Euro-pallets handled by 8 automatic stacker cranes. It is NewCold’s firm believe that automated cold storage is the only way forward to deal with the challenges of a modern supply chain. Next to the cold store, a solar energy park will be developed to supply up to 80% of our future energy needs. Our company believes that the efficient usage of natural resources together with healthy local community and employee relations are the key elements leading to outstanding financial results and business prosperity.

NewCold Named to Food Logistics’ 2021 Top Green Providers List

Breda, the Netherlands – 22 June, 2021 — Food Logistics, the only publication exclusively dedicated to covering the movement of product through the global cold food supply chain, has named NewCold to the 2021 Top Green Providers list.

Food Logistics’ annual Top Green Providers recognizes companies whose products, services or exemplary leadership is enhancing sustainability within the cold food and beverage industry. The editorial staff evaluates a company’s participation in such programs as the EPA’s SmartWay and other recognized sustainability programs; facilities that are LEED-certified and/or feature solar panels, LED lighting and other energy saving installations and retrofits; and other means of producing measurable reductions in GHG emissions, to name a few.

“When the pandemic hit, I thought for sure that sustainability would be pushed to the wayside. But, in fact, the complete opposite happened. And, I couldn’t be more appreciative of the supply chain industry’s efforts in making sustainability top of mind in every aspect of their organization despite the many supply chain disruptions they continue to face,” says Marina Mayer, Editor-in-Chief of Food Logistics and Supply & Demand Chain Executive. “Sustainability is the key to success, and the recipients of this year’s award prove that when sustainability matters to them, they will continue do great things and make a difference in the industry.”

Recipients of this year’s award will be profiled in the June 2021 print issue. Go to www.FoodLogistics.com to view the full list of all 2021 Top Green Providers.

Construction On Track of NewCold Piacenza

In response to continued demand from NewCold’s customers, we have started the construction of a new deepfreeze facility near Piacenza, situated in the north of Italy. The site expects to see the first pallets arriving in Q2 2022. “This is a prime example of one of our business rules”, Bram Hage says, “we follow our customers!”.

Our entrance in the Italian market has started with the acquisition of Pacaro in Borgorose, 75 km north east of Rome, now being a part of the NewCold Group. The Pacaro site has 25,000 Euro-pallet locations and the operation includes an automated cold store.

The Piacenza operation will be the first newly built site in Italy for NewCold. There are already advanced plans for a second site near Rome. The geographical shape of Italy makes it necessary to serve our customers from two locations.
