NECS and Körber Close Deal to Establish Largest Automated Freezer Warehouse in Vietnam

New Era Cold Storage Joint Stock Company (NECS) partners with Körber to create Vietnam’s largest automated freezer warehouse. With an advanced Automated Storage and Retrieval System (ASRS), NECS aims for efficiency, sustainability, and industry leadership

New Era Cold Storage Joint Stock Company (NECS) has recently finalized a significant agreement with Körber, marking a pivotal moment for the cold storage industry in Southeast Asia. This collaboration focuses on implementing an Automated Storage and Retrieval System (ASRS), driving NECS into a position of leadership within Vietnam's cold chain sector. With construction already underway, the project is expected to commence operations in the first quarter of 2026, promising significant advancements in efficiency, sustainability, and industry standards.

Unveiling Vietnam's Largest Automated Freezer Warehouse
In a significant development for the cold storage and logistics sector, NECS has successfully closed a deal with Körber, signifying a remarkable advancement in the industry landscape in Southeast Asia. Specializing in 3rd party logistics services, NECS, based in Long An Province, Vietnam, is set to establish the largest automated freezer warehouse in the country, with construction currently in progress and operations planned to begin in the first quarter of 2026.

Advanced Cold Storage Efficiency through ASRS Technology
The focal point of this collaboration is the implementation of an Automated Storage and Retrieval System (ASRS) from Körber. Boasting an extensive capacity of over 66,000 pallet locations, supported by 10 advanced cranes and towering at a height of 40 meters, the ASRS will enhance the efficiency of NECS's cold storage operations.
One of the key advantages NECS stands to gain from this partnership is a reduction in warehouse footprint, coupled with a higher storage density compared to conventional warehouses. The ASRS ensures accurate inventory management, thereby improving overall operational efficiency. Additionally, the system is designed to minimize heat loss, resulting in lower energy consumption and aligning with NECS's commitment to sustainability, incorporating an energy regenerative system.


Leading Innovation through Strong Partnership
This project symbolizes not only a partnership between NECS and Körber but also a significant advancement in the evolution of cold storage in Southeast Asia. The synergy between technology, innovation, and industry leadership showcased in this project is set to redefine the future of cold storage, establishing NECS as a key player in the region's cold chain sector. It further highlights Körber’s position as a leading intralogistics system integrator within the industry and its commitment to deliver advanced solutions for enhanced efficiency and sustainability.
