Company

Recognized as the fastest growing specialist in automated cold storage

Since our origins in 2012, NewCold has grown into one of world's largest, advanced automated warehouse and cold chain logistics companies.

Our company has a rapidly expanding global presence with our Innovation & Support Center located within the head office in Breda, the Netherlands,

A pioneer in developing and operating frozen automated warehouses, we offer significant footprint, labor, and energy reduction with increased food safety.

NewCold’s global network of 15 locations spans across three continents, offering over 1,187,000 pallet positions. Our transport fleet consists of over 200 trucks and 300 trailers. Our company is supported by a global team of over 1,600 employees.

We learn, innovate, disrupt. We hire people with a growth mindset and a commitment to taking on responsibility. Those traits are more important to us than what’s on the résumé. That’s also why prefer to promote from within.

At NewCold, we design and engineer our own innovations, offering fully integrated end-to-end supply chain solutions that include automated warehouses and transport, seamlessly merging with our customers’ systems. As industry pioneers, we deliver significant footprint, labor, and energy reductions that help our customers save on warehousing costs. We develop and use our own proprietary, state-of-the-art technology – including automated storage and retrieval systems – to increase food safety, provide unparalleled supply chain traceability, and prioritize sustainability.

Our sister company, Haven Ventures, houses a group of experienced software and technology companies that offer the latest innovations in supply chain operations, including those tried and tested by us, that truly scale along with the customers’ size, growing demands, and opportunities. We are first to benefit from these new insights. We cut costs, loading times, and carbon footprints — ours, and that of our customers’. We are in this industry together — a chain of innovation, without waste, where every link grows stronger.

Our goal is to create the most customer-centric, intelligent, and sustainable supply chain in every market we enter. Most of all, we keep our promise to get the job done so you can service your customers as well as we do.
