Culina Fresh opens new facilities

Culina Fresh, the FMCG logistics firm has opened its first two dedicated UK facilities at Spalding and Heathrow.

The Spalding facility in Lincolnshire offers a temperature controlled consolidation service dedicated to fresh produce and horticultural products. It is the first Culina Group depot in this part of the country, and offers local customers access to the group’s complete range of warehousing, distribution and value-added services.

Shipments are delivered to retailers and wholesalers throughout the UK and Ireland using the company’s own temperature controlled fleet which is further enhanced utilising resources from the existing Culina Group network.

The new Heathrow site co-ordinates both worldwide door-to-door temperature controlled sea and air transportation and European road transportation for customers who need to move fresh produce, horticulture and other short shelf-life items.

The company has also taken 50 per cent of the space on a dedicated rail-freight service carrying seasonal produce between Spain and the UK
