Logistics Briefs: Henningsen, Versacold in the news
Henningsen Cold Storage, Hillsboro, Ore., said it created a wine services division at its Forest Grove and Portland, Ore., facilities. Located in the heart of Oregon’s growing wine regions, Henningsen Wine Services offers a wide variety of services including temperature-controlled bonded and tax paid wine and ale storage, multi-temp ingredient and packaging materials storage, local, regional and national transportation, distribution, order picking, fulfillment, and space for bottling, labeling and packing.
This is a natural progression for Henningsen, who has been building and operating multi-temperature warehouses since 1923.
“We have the appropriate space, inventory management system, and the operational expertise of handling goods owned by someone else. We decided to leverage these strengths to the growing wine industry in Oregon,” says Executive Vice President, Tony Lucarelli.
Primus Builders, Atlanta, said it will expand an engine room and related facilities at a Hatfield, Pa., cold storage warehouse operated by VersaCold, Vancouver, B.C.
