NewCold Advanced Logistics awarded the contract to build its warehouses to Dematic recently. The facilities will be the largest of their kind in the southern hemisphere, once complete, and will have a capacity of more than 100,000 pallets.

Various pallet weights and configurations will be deployed within each facility, up to a maximum pallet weight of 1265kgs.

ColbyRack components, comprising more than 8500-tonnes of Bluescope G450 grade steel, will be manufactured at Dematic’s factory in Sydney.

Dematic structural engineering manager Murray Clarke says it’s an exciting contract to land and a major milestone for the cold storage industry in Melbourne.

"Dematic is excited to be partnering with NewCold as they establish their presence in Australia’s cold storage supply chain," Clarke says.

"The award of the contracts to build NewCold’s first two sites demonstrates Dematic’s capability to design, manufacture and install large-scale, heavy-gauge high bay racking solutions in Australia."

NewCold Advanced Logistics executive vice president Bram Hage says 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 scale and height of the racking required for the DCs made Dematic the logical choice as our storage equipment partner," Hage says.
