Kloosterboer has an extensive history and has been in existence for more than 95 years. Over the years, the company has developed from a trading company for seed and ware potatoes and an exporter of fruit and vegetables into an international logistics service provider for cold storage and freezing. Kloosterboer has cold storage facilities at several locations and in several countries, and also offers other logistics services at various locations in Europe and around the world.
The collaboration between SSI SCHAEFER and the logistics service provider Kloosterboer dates back to 2008. Over the years, SSI SCHAEFER has implemented numerous intralogistics solutions for Kloosterboer in the Netherlands, France and Sweden. In Rotterdam, SSI SCHAEFER implemented the Cool Port 2 satellite warehouse, which offers space for 60,000 pallet locations. Process optimization and efficiency in the warehouse played an important role.
The entire steel structure was planned by the engineers at SSI SCHAEFER, with the various subcontractors - from the construction company to the air conditioning and refrigeration supplier to the roof and wall supplier - being coordinated in advance. In addition to the construction of the steel structure, the external weather conditions at different building heights also had to be taken into account and the steel structures had to be able to support the wall and the roof with the solar collectors.
