Third-party logistics provider RSA Logistics has broken ground on its new facility, RSA Cold Chain (RCC), which will provide cold chain solutions for the food industry from March 2017.
Located just outside of the bonded zone in Dubai South, RCC will offer 3PL services for packaged food, fresh fruit and vegetables, dairy products, and frozen food.
Abhishek Ajay Shah, co-founder and managing director of RSA Logistics said: “We take pride in the launch of our latest project, RSA Cold Chain, which increases the scope of niche services we can offer to our customers.
“We believe this is coming at a critical time in the context of global changes that will affect the demand and supply of food products, and in turn influence the requirement for quality services that meet these needs in a safe and sustainable manner.
The facility will have a capacity of 10,800 pallets with eight independent chambers. Each chamber will have a temperature of -26 degrees to +10 degrees.
RCC will also provide temperature controlled transportation to maintain the integrity of the entire supply chain.
The parent company broke ground on the new facility on 19 June in the presence of a delegation headed by Ahmed Al Ansari, acting CEO of Dubai World Central Corporation (Dubai South).
Al Ansari commented: “RSA and Dubai South share some common history as they were amongst the first company to become operational in Dubai South. RSA has been a critical partner in leveraging Dubai South’s integrated multimodal logistics platform.
“Our platform offers unparalleled speed, connectivity and efficiency and sets a new global standard when handling freight, allowing for goods to be transferred from sea to air in only four hours.”
RSA offers storage and 360-degree supply chain solutions, including distribution, transportation, and international freight.
The company’s clients include automotive, power generation, petrochemicals and chemicals and food and beverage companies.
RSA also offers on-site logistics to companies that operate their own warehouses.
The company’s headquarters are located between Jebel Ali Port and Al Maktoum International Airport in Dubai South.
