COLD chain operator METS Logistics Inc’s P296.2-million expansion plan recently received Board of Investments pioneer status.

Expected to be completed in January 2012, the expansion plan calls for the building of a facility that will house six rooms offering 520 pallet positions; a processing room; and two blast freezing rooms with four-pallet position.

METS currently owns a 1,445-square meter dry warehouse and 11,052-square meter cold storage in Carmona, Cavite.

The new facility will be equipped with a push-back racking system for easy storage and retrieval of cargoes and automated stainless storage doors with anti-lock mechanism to ensure minimal loss of temperature in the storage area.

It will feature spacious anterooms and receiving bays with push-button doors allowing for simultaneous receiving and dispatching. An expansive truck holding area in front of the loading/unloading bay will also allow for easy truck maneuvering.

The facility, which will use plastic pallets to comply with National Meat Inspection Services standards, will service clients located south of Manila, including Purefoods Hormel, Pacific Meats Inc, KFC, Monterey and Danasia Inc.
