Fresh Direct Facility - The Bronx
FreshDirect says the new facility “reimagines farm-to-fork food distribution and manufacturing, which will provide even higher-quality, fresher food for customers.” It will enable the company to add thousands of new products and accelerate its expansion into new geographies. We are happy we helped make it happen!
The FDC has temperature controlled areas designed to best handle and store meat, seafood, produce, deli, bakery, and prepared food items along with a specific freezer room for ice cream and refrigerated rooms for bananas, tomatoes and onions. Each personal shopper will work with the same 20-30 fresh products daily so they can become experts in their select products, says the company.
The FDC is equipped with robotic pick towers, smart routing technologies and nine miles of conveyor belts. To deliver on FreshDirect’s commitment to sustainability, it also is environmentally friendly and energy efficient.
