CEVA Logistics officially opened its new, integrated, end-to-end cold chain facility at DP World London Gateway, at an event attended by 50+ customers. The Chill Hub is a state-of-the-art operation strategically located to provide maximum customer benefit through its ability to manage all elements of the process at one site.
Within the multi-temperature 10,000 sqm facility are up to 10,000 pallet positions featuring seven independent chambers capable of operating at all temperature ranges from -25°C through to +16°C. This means chilled, frozen and temperature specific items can be accommodated.
Dedicated areas will handle pharmaceuticals, fresh and frozen produce, beverage products and flowers as well as other goods requiring temperature specific handling and storage.
A full range of value-added services including Labelling, Boxing, Re-palletising, Price coding, Tagging and Kitting are all available through the Chill Hub.
CEVA’s new Chill Hub has the additional benefit of a deep-sea port on the same site as the logistics park where the hub is located. The UK’s number one reefer hub, London Gateway has links to over 110 ports in 60 different countries and its dockside proximity to the warehouse means shunting can take as little as two hours.
CEVA has long and well-established reputation for warehouse management in the cool chain arena and the opening of the Chill Hub with its expanded and capabilities and end-to-end service offering further cements its credentials.
