Panalpina keeps it cool in Brazil

Panalpina Brazil has made a significant investment in its warehouse in Cajamar, São Paulo, as part of its strategy to improve its cold chain logistics solutions in the country.

The warehouse is now exclusively dedicated to the cold chain market, with the capability to store various types of temperature-controlled cargo, such as medicines and cosmetics as well as food and perishables.

The 4,000 sq metre facility has three cold chambers. The first is set to -20°C; the second to temperatures ranging from 2°C to 8°C; and the third, and largest, covers temperatures from 15°C to 25°C.

The warehouse has 10 docks for loading and unloading products, approximately 1,500 pallet positions and an area for services, such as packaging, labelling, kitting and repacking.

Panalpina Brazil also offers national and international logistics for temperature-controlled cargo. Logistics director Marcelo Tonet says. “Our transport and distribution network was fully revamped and today it has a much broader scope with nationwide coverage and international connections. For deliveries in Brazil, we also use domestic air freight. Both our air and road subcontractors are able to handle any type of temperature-controlled cargo in a fully compliant manner.”

Tonet also highlights theSmartview monitoring system adopted by the company, which allows customers to monitor, in real time, the cargo temperature and humidity using sensors and radio-frequency identification (RFID) technology installed at strategic locations.
