Published Last updated

With this agreement, Samskip can further improve the service it offers its customers with its steadily growing worldwide reefer logistics network. Bayside Food Terminal in Bayside, New Brunswick, Canada has a coldstore capacity of 12,000 tonnes. It focuses mainly on the frozen fish market ex Alaska and being situated close to the US border, it is ideally located for supplying production plants in the region. The terminal operation complies with all regulatory demands from the Canadian Food Inspection Agency. According to Johan Kloosterboer, Managing Director, Samskip Coldstore Division, this deal complements the recent establishment of several Samskip Reefer Logistics offices in the USA and Canada. He commented: “We are very pleased that Bayside Food Terminal is now linked with the Samskip/Kloosterboer group. With this facility, we are able to comply with requests received from many of our customers to offer a reefer centre on the Canadian east coast. We look forward to expanding business for these customers and to further improve our service offering to them.” As well as coldstores, Bayside Food Terminal also operates as a stevedoring company and ships’ agency.
