DB Schenker opens new facility in Perth

DB Schenker Perth held the official opening of their new cold store in Perth last week helping to extend their Perishables logistics footprint within Australia.

DB Schenker have had a continuous presence in Western Australia since the mid-1960’s and the company, which has a strong Perishables presence on the East coast of Australia and in New Zealand, has invested in this world class facility at their High Wycombe site.

The site at High Wycombe is located both near to the airport and the harbour at Fremantle.

The cold store boasts over 500 square metres of floor space with a large ante room, two chillers and a freezer. There is capacity to store product up to four pallets high and the site has an unbroken cold chain to maintain product integrity.

“We are thrilled to offer our services to the ever growing local and international Perishables customers in Western Australia who are looking for a world class facility to manage their goods and which deserve excellent handling to ensure it arrives in the best condition to all regions of the world. The passion and dedication of our staff in this facility will assist us to achieve exemplary service to our customers,” Ron Koehler, CEO of Schenker Australia said.
