Hong Kong’s cold chain logistics industry has seen growing demand for low-temperature preservation throughout the entire process, from pick-up and warehousing to order management, transportation, and delivery.
Existing cold chain services in Hong Kong have not been meeting the expectations of food importers, wholesalers, retailers, and the catering industry. Most cold stores lack temperature control for goods once they leave the cold room, leading to the deterioration of fresh ingredients.
To bridge these gaps in the current cold chain logistics services in Hong Kong, TAHUHU launched what it claims to be the first automated and smart cold chain logistics service in Hong Kong.
The solution includes a seamless temperature-control loading dock, “muti-level no man zone” and top-of-the-line automation equipment, such as "goods-to-person" systems and “automated vertical cargo lift”.
Describing the innovation
TAHUHU utilises state-of-the-art logistics infrastructure, refrigeration systems, temperature control equipment, and stringent temperature control to maintain stable and optimal temperatures for goods in every single step.
With TAHUHU's dual-temperature refrigerated trucks, goods are transported directly to the temperature-controlled loading dock, to prevent the intrusion of hot air. Before loading, the truck will be pre-cooled to the target temperature to ensure all goods are loaded at the correct temperature.
TAHUHU's cold storage is divided into three temperature zones (0-4°C, -18°C, -25°C), allowing fruits, vegetables, flowers, sake, frozen meat, and ice cream to maintain their optimal condition, achieving a complete seamless cold chain connection.
What it means
With its advanced automation and innovative systems, TAHUHU is setting a new standard for cold chain logistics in Hong Kong. The facility's ability to optimise storage space and increase productivity while maintaining the highest quality standards is a testament to its commitment to excellence. TAHUHU's flexible approach to transforming traditional industrial buildings into high-standard cold chain logistics centres, not only increases productivity and enhances property value but also showcases the company's adaptability and innovation.
TAHUHU says its solution can ensure that all goods are seamlessly connected throughout the entire cold chain logistics process. In addition, TAHUHU's new CSA standard is poised to address long term shortcomings in the industry, such as inflexible delivery times, a tight supply of warehouse space, and difficulties in monitoring the performance of delivery drivers.
By utilising advanced CSA, TAHUHU can provide its customers with the most reliable, efficient, and seamless cold chain logistics service available.
