Culina Fresh opens new facilities
Culina Fresh has opened two dedicated UK facilities at Spalding and Heathrow. They have also taken 50% of the space on a dedicated rail-freight service that carries seasonal produce between the UK and Spain.
The Spalding office offers a temperature controlled consolidation service dedicated to fresh produce and horticultural products. With the use of the companies own temperature controlled fleet deliveries are shipped across the UK and Ireland to wholesalers and retailers.
Supply chain management specialists with in-depth fresh produce and horticultural experience have been recruited. As the first Culina Group depot in this part of the country it offers local customers access to the group’s complete range of warehousing, distribution and value-added services.
The new Heathrow site co-ordinates both worldwide door-to-door temperature controlled sea and air transportation and European road haulage for customers who need to ship fresh produce, horticulture and other short shelf-life items. Now fully operational, this facility provides an interface for other Culina Group companies to enhance the services currently offered.
