In recent years, the Food & Beverage industry's evolution has brought forth a need for Food Safety, Accessibility, and Availability in the Philippines. With more than 7,600 islands, Philippines food logistics presents a challenge that surpasses many other neighboring South East Asia countries in terms of its geography and logistics transportation. Using technology from SSI SCHAEFER, ORCA Cold Chain Solutions (ORCA), the logistics arm of ISOC Holdings, tackled the ever-widening gap between the rapid city urbanization and the food logistics supply chain system.

Philippines' First Automated Facility

ORCA's most advanced rack clad designed cold chain facility is situated in Taguig, Manila where the process and operations are fully automated. Powered by the Automated Storage Retrieval System (ASRS), the pallets handling process is seamless, with zero to minimal human interactions.

100% Traceability and Accountability Ensured

To keep track of all inbound and outbound pallets, ORCA uses SSI SCHAEFER's proprietary logistics software - WAMAS®. With real-time monitoring, the control system oversees the inbound and outbound pallets in the facility. 24 hours through 7 days a week, the software controls all the processes in the warehouse, optimizing the goods movements and resources.

Sustainable Logistics Solutions: Pioneering a Paradigm Shift in the Philippine Logistics Industry

Sustainable logistics solutions are at the forefront of today's material handling industry. Together with ORCA Cold Chain Solutions, SSI SCHAEFER believes that the innovation behind the sustainable warehouse logistics solutions will not only increase the efficiency within the supply chain, but it will also fortify the Philippines food industry with higher quality assurance and capacity.

ORCA's CEO and President, Yerik Cosiquien

A First for the Philippines

“From the very beginning, the vision for ORCA was to be a world-class gamechanger. That is why we chose to work with SSI SCHAEFER in order to bring to the Philippines for the first time, this type of innovation and automation.

What we have built together with SSI SCHAEFER is the first of its kind in the Philippines, the first fully automated high-bay storage cold chain facility. Our food supply chain has more obstacles than most, we are also more prone to earthquakes and typhoons, with the COVID-19 pandemic, this put even more stress into our food supply chain."
