The demand for cold storage is continuously increasing. The goods stored in these warehouses are generally insensitive to economic cycles and the logistics to handle them are critical to maintaining a functioning society.

What happens in a warehouse for cold storage?

For certain products - such as food or pharmaceuticals - an unbroken cold chain during handling and storage is absolutely essential. In a cold storage warehouse, a desired temperature is ensured. There are often different temperature zones within the same property.

Smart energy solutions is crucial

Cold storage is energy-intensive, but the cooling and freezing facilities in the property also generate a lot of heat. Therefore, it is important to find sustainable and cost-effective solutions that optimize energy use throughout the property.

Future-proofed properties for cold storage

Our ambition is net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2030, which, among other things, affects the construction process when a new facility for cold storage is to be built. We also want to achieve environmental certifications on 100 percent of the Group’s lettable area and net-positive property portfolio in terms of biodiversity.

Seafrigo and Kyl- och Frysexpressen Nord are examples of companies with operations in Catena's distribution centres.
