RSA breaks ground on new RSA Cold Chain facility
RSA Logistics has broken ground on a new facility for its subsidiary RSA Cold Chain (RCC), which will be located in Dubai South initially with a capacity of 21,000 pallets for the FMCGs sector.
RCC will start phase 1 operations in March 2017, offering an initial capacity of 10,800 pallets, coupled with sophisticated, end-to-end 3PL services for packaged food, fresh fruit and vegetables, dairy products, and frozen food.
The warehouse will be comprised of 8 independent chambers, and with a unique ammonia-based chilling system, each chamber will accommodate temperatures as low as -25 degrees.
The site for the new facility is strategically located just outside the bonded zone in Dubai South to maximize ease of access and minimize time lags in movements of the food products, says RSA Logistics co-founder and managing director, Abhishek Ajay Shah.
RCC will also provide temperature controlled transportation, providing a holistic solution that meets the stringent compliance requirements for food storage and transportation, while focusing on quality and scalability.
"We take pride in the launch of our latest project, RSA Cold Chain, which increases the scope of niche services we can offer to our customers,” says Shah. “The cold chain is an under-served sector in the UAE and the Middle East and we're excited to be part of the journey that will see a change in this equation."
