Americold opens temperature-controlled facility in WA

Americold, a global provider of temperature-controlled storage solutions, continues its commitment to growth in Australia with the recent opening of its facility in Spearwood, Western Australia.

This temperature-controlled warehouse is claimed to be the largest of its kind in the region and boasts advanced automated storage retrieval system (ASRS) technology. The Spearwood facility joins four other major Americold automation deployments globally in 2023.

The crane automatically retrieves pallets in the ASRS.

“This expansion could not be timelier, as the population of Western Australia continues to grow, driving increased demand for food products. This new facility doubles our storage capacity at the site and streamlines the distribution process through the use of cutting-edge technology that executes tasks with unparalleled efficiency and accuracy,” said Americold’s Richard Winnall, President, International.

Strategically located for easy access to Fremantle Port, the Spearwood facility has a range of features tailored to meet the diverse needs of producers, retailers and consumers alike. From controlled product tempering and blast freezing capabilities to certification for import/export operations and advanced inventory management systems, the facility is equipped to support various industries and logistical requirements.
