Announcing Our New Dandenong South Mega Depot

27 February 2024 | News

2024 is shaping to be a huge year for us at Minus 1! I’m excited to share some huge news. We’re gearing up to consolidate our three Dandenong sites into a singular, cutting-edge head office facility in Dandenong Sth, post-Easter this year.

This move isn’t just a change of location; it’s a leap into the future of refrigerated transport and logistics for Minus 1 and you our customers.

A Glimpse into the Future: Our New Facility

Our new depot is a behemoth in the world of refrigerated logistics, sprawling over 11,000sqm. It’s custom-fit-out for high-volume cross-docking and multi-chamber storage, ensuring we stay at the forefront of the logistics industry.

But what really sets this facility apart is its state-of-the-art multi-zone temperature control, a feature that’s becoming increasingly crucial in our industry.

The Power of Multi-Zone Temperature Control

Multi-zone temperature control is more than a fancy term; it’s a game-changer for logistics. It allows for the storage of diverse goods under optimal conditions, all under one roof.

For instance, chilled products, frozen goods, confectionery, and dry items each require specific environmental conditions to maintain their quality.

Our new facility is equipped to cater to these varied needs with precision, ensuring the integrity of every product we handle.

Enhancing Our Capabilities

The new depot boasts 13 recessed loading docks, significantly enhancing our capacity and efficiency. This expansion means we can handle larger volumes and offer more comprehensive services, including storage and container.

It’s a step towards providing our clients with a seamless, end-to-end logistics solution.

Real-Life References of Multi-Zone Temperature Control

The benefits of multi-zone temperature control in logistics are well-documented. For example, a study by the International Journal of Refrigeration highlighted the importance of precise temperature control in maintaining the quality and safety of perishable goods during transport.

Similarly, a report by the American Frozen Food Institute emphasised the need for specialised storage conditions for different types of frozen foods to preserve their nutritional value and taste.

A Personal Invitation

As we embark on this new journey, I extend a personal invitation to you.

This new facility is more than an expansion; it’s a testament to our commitment to innovation and excellence in refrigerated transport. At Minus 1, we’re not just adapting to the changing landscape of logistics; we’re actively shaping it.

Stay tuned for more updates as we continue to revolutionise the industry and set new benchmarks in service quality.
