Americold Realty Trust intends to invest approximately $41.7 million ($65 million NZD) to expand its Dalgety site in Auckland, New Zealand. The project will increase the site’s capacity by roughly 4.6 million ft3 and about 27,000 pallet positions.
At completion, the facility will be equipped with 20 additional dock doors and semi-automated container-unloading technology to drive efficiencies. The expansion will be anchored by Woolworths New Zealand (Countdown supermarkets) as part of a long-term commitment with Atlanta, Ga.-based Americold. Construction has resumed and the project is expected to be completed by mid-2021.
