Men at the
heart of LOCAGEL

Despite the huge size of our cold storage facilities and the polar cold that prevails there, what our customers remember above all is the relationships with the LOCAGEL teams. Beyond the technical means and expertise of refrigerated logistics put at the service of our customers, it is indeed the state of mind and the values that drive us that are most appreciated.

Commitment to service, responsiveness, pragmatism, transparency are not empty words and our clients recognize this by building with us strong and lasting business relationships. They know we are at their side to meet the challenges, adapt and succeed together. Meet some of the LOCAGEL men and women. Come and meet them!

Our strengths

These assets enable LOCAGEL to satisfy the most demanding customers who, in turn, continue their collaboration for many years.

Frozen goods expertise

The specialization in cold storage for more than 30 years and the support of some of the biggest names in the food industry and retail allow LOCAGEL to maintain a level of excellence, supported by stable teams.

Accessibility

The accessibility to LOCAGEL is of course due to the ideal location of its logistics platforms in the North of France (Lille/ Marcq-en-Barœul), and in Pas-de-Calais (Lens/ Vendin-le-Vieil), but also to the 24/7 access to its warehouses.

Commitment

It is undoubtedly the asset of LOCAGEL that has the most impact in maintaining the top quality logistics we deliver. We are very proud of the commitment that LOCAGEL teams mobilize on a daily basis.

Responsiveness

The family dimension of LOCAGEL guarantees a reduced number of interlocutors and allows quick decisions. Then, the commitment of LOCAGEL men implements it with the same efficiency.

Transparency

Clarity, simplicity… Collaboration is never as effective when it is done with transparency. Decisions are appropriate and shared, everyday life goes smoothly and, when a challenge arises, our customers and we are on the same wavelength to meet it.

Family business

LOCAGEL is a family-run SME in the Hauts-de-France region with a long-standing presence in the refrigerated logistics. But it is also the family spirit that contributes to the creation of faithful and experienced teams that maintain their expertise.

FOCUS

Sense of quality

With a very strong stability of our staff and a very low temporary rate, our forklift operators, cargo handlers, drivers, team leaders have a strong experience that allows to bring value to our customers, at the slightest stage of of their goods’ processing. This experience, this quality and this commitment are found in the ability to achieve loss rates (damage or loss of products) very close to 0!

Our focus on quality pushes us to anticipate as much as possible consequences for our customers’ entire supply chain.
