Fresh and tasty: deep-freeze storage solution for Marja Bothnia Berries Oy

Only the freshest berries will reach your table, and there is enough for everyone!
SSI Schaefer is providing Marja Bothnia Berries Oy with a flexible and compact storage solution for their deep-freeze area at the new warehouse in Mustasaari, Finland.
Marja Bothnia Berries Oy is well known on the market as a wholesaler of frozen berries of all kinds: lingonberry, bilberry, cranberry, e.t.c. To get the freshest berries from the woods to your kitchen the company organizes the full cycle: picking, cleaning, freezing, and delivering to customers.
Marja Bothnia Berries Oy’s business is both within the country and export. Thus, the new warehouse will be responsible for handling rather large volumes of goods and will ensure that operations are well-equipped to handle the growing demand and future expansion plans for the company.
SSI Schaefer has a good reputation on the market for its cold chain and frozen food storage and handling solutions. This together with both companies’ common ground - focus on sustainability - were the reasons to hire SSI Schaefer as a supplier for the job.
The new facility has more freezer space to store the ready goods before shipping, serving as a buffer. For Marja Bothnia Berries Oy, the main goals for the deep-freeze area were efficient space utilization and high accessibility of each pallet. To fulfil these requirements SSI Schaefer has provided the customer with 32 aisles of Mobile Racks divided into 3 freezer systems. The equipment is supported by our partner’s WMS - Logisoft. The deep freeze area will ensure 5,704 pallet locations.
The project will be finalized and released into operations in October 2021.
