Maersk Opens Cold Storage in Russia
Only nine months after construction started, Maersk opens its cold storage facility in St. Petersburg, Russia. It will offer freezing capabilities for frozen produce.
The facility has a total capacity of more than 40 000 pallets in three chambers and uses CO2 cooling, which makes it the largest commercial cold store in Russia using this technology. The first container to arrive at the warehouse brought pears from Argentina after a 26-day journey.
