An excellent supply chain

Full-service logistics for Ocean Spray

The best possible logistics with short supply routes are especially important in the food industry. That’s why our partner, Ocean Spray, is currently changing the storage location for its sweetened dried cranberries. The company is staying loyal to the Dutch Kloosterboer organization in the process but is relocating from the Delta Terminal to Rotterdam Cool Port. The change has been completed by the end of September, after which Ocean Spray has dried cranberries loaded only from that site.

State-of-the-art processes and a sustainability certificate

The highly modern Cool Port full-service logistics center, first opened only two years ago, specializes in easily perishable goods. Located at the City Terminal (Eemhaven) in Rotterdam, it is one of the most sustainable cold-storage warehouses in the Netherlands. They have had good reason to be pleased with this assessment from 2018 onwards because the warehouse was certified as “outstanding” according to the BREEAM (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method) assessment guidelines at that time.

Rotterdam Cool Port, with storage capacity for 40,000 pallets, represents a high level of automation, groundbreaking equipment and trimodal connections. Situated directly at the container terminal, goods can be forwarded by sea freight or inland waterway, by road transport or by rail. This allows deliveries to be coordinated with the best possible time and cost efficiency.

A beneficial change for Ocean Spray

The relocation of sweetened dried cranberries allows Ocean Spray to respond even more flexibly to customers’ requirements because all the company’s products are now stored under one roof. Numerous storage facilities for similar products are also nearby, which simplifies consolidated shipments in particular. Cool Port’s central location also reduces freight costs and possible surcharges.

Longer opening times are another plus point for the refrigerated warehouse in the Port – perfect for loading even after peak hours. Delays or changes at short notice can also be responded to more flexibly, to keep waiting times as short as possible.

A far-sighted decision – we look forward to even more convenient collaboration with Ocean Spray in the near future.
