Orchestrating with Precision

Having the right warehousing helps ensure food safety, inventory management and order fulfilment. Execution requires precise movement of goods while maintaining transparency for the customer.

 

Our network

Our warehousing services deliver on all fronts. We operate 27 distribution centres across Canada, with a combined storage capacity of over 120 million cubic feet. That’s a lot of room for quality food.

Your product can be stored at a wide range of cold temperatures, ranging from -30°C to 4°C (-18°F to 39°F), and orders for all types of commodities can be prepared on site. Many sites have rooms that can convert from freezer to cooler, based on your requirements, to ensure your food is always at its optimal temperature.

Many VersaCold facilities are approved to export meat and fish to Europe and Asia, making it easy for customers to coordinate shipment of products to key global markets.

With a large geographical footprint come many important responsibilities. That’s why VersaCold has invested in a Cold Chain Assurance team to develop and implement food safety and quality strategies in alignment with quality management systems, including Global Food Safety Initiatives (GFSI) standards. It’s just another way VersaCold ensures the integrity, quality and freshness of your food.

Our Know-How

Our warehouse facilities meet the highest quality and safety standards for your food, including HACCP requirements and BRC certifications at most facilities. The majority of our facilities also have on-site CFIA offices and inspection rooms.

We offer advanced and transparent inventory tracking and availability via web portals to ensure full order status visibility and monitoring of your food. We also have a team of dedicated Supply Chain Solutions engineers to offer consulting expertise and insights throughout every aspect of your supply chain.
