Nordfrost positions itself for logistics in the fishing industry

The refrigerated logistics company Nordfrost, which operates in various ports, wants to expand its involvement in the fish industry’s supply chain.

Nordfrost presented itself at the Fish International trade fair in Bremen and took the opportunity to highlight the potential advantages of its locations.

The company wants to be a “one-stop-buying centre” for container shipments and the handling of containers of all sizes, according to a press release.

The Nordfrost terminal in the inner port of Wilhelmshaven offers “optimal conditions” for handling conventional reefer ships, which is possible regardless of the tides with a draught of 10 meters. The required unloading equipment can be flexibly deployed over a quay length of 450 meters.

The seaport terminal on the Jade, or in the container port of Wilhelmshaven, offers trimodal connections. There are no weight restrictions in the port itself. The terminal has a Container Freight Station with a storage capacity for 145,000 pallets, including 75,000 in the freezer area.

The Nordfrost cold store is located in the fishing port of Bremerhaven in the vicinity of the fishing industry. The terminal has a Container Freight Station with a current storage capacity of 12,000 pallet spaces in the deep-freeze area, which will be approximately doubled once the current planning has been completed. Bulkers can also be handled at the cold store, which is located directly on the quay of the fishing port.

In Wesel on the Lower Rhine to the north of Duisburg, the refrigerated logistics company is currently building a new cold storage facility with a container terminal directly on the water. In future, this will be used to manage (reefer) container traffic to and from the ARA ports, which will be shipped in a particularly environmentally friendly way via the Rhine waterway.

The overall aim is to enable a sustainable seafood supply chain with integration into the Europe-wide transport network.
