They all recognize the high quality of our work and our close cooperation to put efficient cold logistics at the service of their own customers. The best proof is their high fidelity, whether they are reference players in food or health, manufacturers or retailers.

From dock to dock, the path of your frozen foods

Around cold storage, our core business, we have developed a range of services to bring added value and flexibility to our customers, food industry and retail professionals.

LOCAGEL works closely with its sister company TRANSFREEZE, a refrigerated transport specialist.
Many of the LOCAGEL platforms are equipped with conveyors to allow us to unload all pallets from a trailer at once.
Our -38°C freezing chamber allows 100 pallets to be processed at once.
To optimize space and enhance thermal inertia, our cold stores are equipped with a majority of mobile racks.
At LOCAGEL, we have been working by voice picking for years for the reliability, durability and comfort of this method.
Our experienced teams rely on automated packaging lines (labellers, case tapers, metal detectors, etc.) for optimal performance.
With our docks at -20°C and 31 dock doors, we can load quickly in good conditions.
Due to the importance and variety of references stored on our sites, the main carriers pass daily on our sites.

What we offer you

Storage and processing
capacity

With the deep cold storage of more than 41,000 pallets in 230,000 m3, we offer our customers a strong adaptation to their needs by accompanying them in their growth or seasonal variations. It is also the ability to receive or ship thousands of pallets/day, or repackage tens of thousands of packages/day.

Quality, traceability
health safety

Reliability, in the sanitary field as in the compliance of shipments, is essential to our logistics business. The objective of the “good at first time” and continuous improvement are part of LOCAGEL’s culture and of course we ensure full traceability of your products. Our quality of service is verified by a reliability rate close to 100% (very low number of preparation errors, wastage rate of almost zero, etc.).

Agility, adaptation,
reactivity

In addition to the storage volume, the processing capacity and the quality provided, our customers particularly appreciate our adaptation to their needs. An inventory to be done within two days? A last minute picking? We know how to find, with you, solutions to meet your customers’ and production sites’ needs.

Geographic location
proximity, accessibility

Able to serve 78 M of European consumers, our refrigerated warehouses are located near major motorway routes to quickly reach the North of France, Paris and its region, Normandy or the East of France, the United Kingdom, Belgium, the Netherlands, etc. Our sites are also located within two consumption hubs in the Hauts-de-France region with a population of more than 1.5 million: the Métropole Européenne de Lille (MEL) and the Communauté d’Agglomération de Lens-Liévin.

Controlled cost,
competitive price

During these years, we have supported major names in the food and retail industry (Mc Cain, Carrefour, DéliFrance, etc.) in a shared approach of logistics excellence. At LOCAGEL, we have chosen competitiveness through the performance of our logistics tool and our processes while advancing the quality of life at work. And this technical and price competitiveness benefits our customers of all sizes.

FOCUS

Docks at -20°C

One of the strengths of LOCAGEL is obvious when visiting our cold storage facilities: 5,000 m2 docks at -20°C fully integrated into the cold stores.
– Continuity of cold from truck to rack (for optimal food safety)
– Advance preparation of orders (package or pallet) under very good conditions
– Reduction of carrier processing times
– Possibility of cross-docking at -20°C

These benefits of flow management in warehouses directly benefit our customers and their carriers in quality and contribute to cost control, such as maintaining teams of great experience in permanent contract while having competitive rates.
