PERISHABLE GOODS: FOOD & PHARMA
In 2017, F&S installed a new generation cold room system at our headquarters in Vignate, of about 400 sqm, with two temperature ranges available: +2/+8 and +15/+25.
The cold room is equipped with a pre-cold room with two dedicated unloading doors, to unload/reload goods from/to the vehicle and process them. We have alarm systems to alert the competent staff of any temperature deviations or anomalies.
We wanted to seize this business opportunity. In addition to the fact that at a national level the export of these two types of goods has always been in constant increase, we have noticed an increasing demand from our customers.
As a multi-logistics platform with a wide range of services, F&S offers warehousing and storage assistance for temperature-controlled goods, both pharma and food.
Below are the services provided:
- Acceptance of goods with introduction of the same into the cold room
- Verification of packaging suitability and/or any irregularities
