PFS focuses on China
May 12, 2011 10:02 AM
Preferred Freezer Services (PFS) is committed to addressing the rapidly changing consumption trends throughout China.
As stated in a March 11, 2011 report from McKinsey Global Institute, nine of the 10 urban areas that will experience the highest GDP (Gross Domestic Product) growth from 2007 to 2025 are in China.
Given China’s forecasted economic growth figures, there is an increasing demand for safe handling and overall higher food quality. This includes both import and export of prepared and frozen convenience foods. John J Galiher, president and chief executive officer of PFS, has identified the real need for continued expansion of modern, energy-efficient, and safe temperature-controlled warehouses within China.
PFS has begun planning and development of 14 locations within China. Those targeted cities include Beijing, Tianjin, Shenzhen, and Shanghai. Currently, two fully automated facilities in Shanghai totaling more than 44,700 square meters are near completion in Lingang Logistics Park and Wai Gao Qiao. For more than 20 years, PFS has specialized in designing, building, and operating state-of-the-art temperature-controlled warehouses.
Tim McLellan, managing director of international business development, said, “The Shanghai Lingang facility will open in the third quarter of 2011. Preferred Freezer Services is very proud to set a higher standard for temperature-controlled warehouses in China and to be able to participate in the development of China’s cold chain supply and logistics industry. Current PFS customers in the United States that value our business model are delighted to know they can expand into China and receive the same dedicated first-class service and premium quality cold chain solutions to fulfill their China business needs. Even more important are the domestic Chinese companies who understand Preferred Freezer Services commitment to building and managing state-of-the-art temperature-controlled warehouses and how valuable our model will be to helping China meet its demands for properly handled food products.”
