Agri-Norcold, one of the country’s largest service partners in frozen goods handling, is now relocating the majority of its administration to the East Port in Aalborg. The area is not unfamiliar to the company, as it already operates a large cold storage facility at the location.
With one million square meters of frozen storage capacity spread across more than 10 terminals throughout Denmark, Agri-Norcold is among the country’s leading companies in frozen goods handling and storage.
Since 1991, the company has operated a large cold storage facility at the East Port. Now, the majority of Agri-Norcold’s administration is moving into the same building.
– The move is happening because we want to be closer to the operations. We have been doing business at the East Port for a long time, and since we had available office space at the location, the time was right to bring together 20 employees from the administration at this address, says CEO of Agri-Norcold, Jan B. Nielsen.
Ship traffic to the world is crucial
When Agri-Norcold opened its branch at the East Port in Aalborg over 30 years ago, the purpose was to be close to the Greenlandic traffic. And even though the last Greenlandic ship departed from Aalborg in 2022, and Port of Aalborg took over the container terminal, Agri-Norcold has chosen to invest in the strategically advantageous location.
– With our facilities located close to the quay, we have ideal logistical conditions for import and export. Especially when it comes to ship traffic to the world, which we expect even more of in the future as the demand for greener alternatives to road transport increases, concludes Jan B. Nielsen.
With the move to the East Port, Agri-Norcold now employs a total of 30 full-time and hourly workers at the location.
