VersaCold Logistics Services opened Phase 1 of its distribution center in Milton, Ontario, which is its largest capital investment ever.
The growth is a result of the company’s overall strategy and an expanded partnership with Nestlé Canada. The center will become a key addition to Nestlé’s Canadian distribution network, according to Toronto-based VersaCold.
“Our continued partnership with VersaCold, now at the Milton facility, is a strategic decision to simplify, increase speed and flexibility as we strive to be industry leaders in service, efficiency and reliability,” Greg Christopher, Nestlé Canada senior vice president of supply chain operations, said in a statement.
VersaCold is a logistics company focused exclusively on the handling of temperature-sensitive products, and the largest such operation in Canada.
