Dematic Pty Ltd

Monday, 12 September, 2016


NewCold Advanced Logistics has awarded contracts to Dematic to build two high-bay warehouses at new sites in Truganina, Melbourne.

When completed, the automated cold storage facilities will be the largest of their kind in the Southern Hemisphere and will include ColbyRack high-bay racking capable of housing 100,000 and 106,000 pallets respectively. Various pallet weights and configurations will be deployed within each facility up to a maximum pallet weight of 1265 kg. The ColbyRack components, comprising more than 8500 tonnes of roll-formed Bluescope G450 grade steel, are being locally manufactured at Dematic’s factory in the Sydney suburb of Belrose.

NewCold Founder and Executive Vice President Bram Hage said: “The new warehouses will be two of the very few facilities in the world that are both ambient and temperature controlled in a highly automated environment.”

The new warehouses are due for completion by mid-2017.
