Chennai Cold Chain Solutions

Located in Ponneri, spread over 10,000 sq. meters, the cold chain solutions facility is the first-of-its-kind in South India. One of the critical advantages is that it is integrated with APM Terminals Inland Services container freight station.

The facility offers storage, transportation and customs clearance facilitation for temperature and humidity controlled products for both domestic consumption as well as export and import. Value added services like palletization, packaging, labelling and blast freezing are also available at the facility. Built using the latest technologies, the facility is strategically located in proximity to the ports of Chennai, Ennore, Kattupalli and Krishnapattnam with round the clock accessibility. An additional cold chain solutions facility for domestic use has been built nearby.
