CEVA Logistics opened its new, integrated, end-to-end cold chain facility, The Chill Hub, at DP World London Gateway on October 10.

The Chill Hub is a 10,000 square metre facility featuring up to 10,000 pallet positions and seven independent chambers capable of operating at all temperature ranges from -25°C through to +16°C. Dedicated areas will handle pharmaceuticals, fresh and frozen produce, beverage products and flowers as well as other goods requiring temperature specific handling and storage.

A full range of value-added services including labelling, boxing, re-palletising, price coding, tagging and kitting are all available through the Chill Hub.

The energy-efficient building is strategically located at London Gateway to provide maximum customer benefit through its ability to manage all elements of the process at one site. CEVA’s new Chill Hub has the additional benefit of a deep-sea port on the same site as the hub. The Gateway has links to over 110 ports in 60 different countries and its dockside proximity to the warehouse means shunting can take as little as two hours.

Nicolas Sartini, Chief Executive Officer, CEVA Logistics said: “With its excellent road and rail connections, our best in class warehouse management systems and direct port access, the Chill Hub is a powerful demonstration of the synergies between CEVA Logistics and CMA CGM. This state-of-the-art facility will enable us to offer a unique value proposition to our shipper customers, providing a faster delivery of goods through an energy-efficient building. We can also give full visibility and control of the entire inbound operation through the Chill Hub.”
