PH’s first fully automated cold storage now operational

Business magnate Michael Cosiquien’s ORCA Cold Chain Solutions has opened the first ever fully automated cold storage facility in the Philippines, which will be able to cater to food and agriculture products.

Located in Taguig, this multi-billion-peso features a high bay storage racking structure that is equipped with an Automated Storage and Retrieval System (ASRS) and a Warehouse Management System (WMS).

Both technologies allow increased efficiency in the storage and retrieval of pallets in the facility, while ensuring minimal human interaction in order to limit pilferage, contamination and spoilage.

“The Philippines is a very rich country. We are bountiful on all agricultural fronts, from land to water. And yet, a lot of Filipinos remain hungry or cannot have the freshest food possible. We have a lot of untapped potential to be world-class as a food-producing and food-making country. And all of these have motivated us in investing and putting up this state-of-the-art facility,” said ISOC Cold Chain President and Chief Executive Officer Yerik Cosiquien.

“We are proud to bring ASRS into our shores, the technology has been present in our Southeast Asian neighbors and in the most advanced countries of the world. This is an achievement not just for ORCA, but for the country,” he added.
