How cool is this?
Logistics at Foodbank WA
Last month alone we received 406,767 kg of incoming food to process and get ready for the shop floor and of course for distribution.
This massive ongoing task is carried out by our Logistics and Supply Chain team along with our Perth branch team.
Depending on stock levels, current needs and a number of other factors, sometimes we freeze stock that we have to extend its usability and shelf life.
You all know that our freezer is huge and cold, but did you know that it is actually -18C?
The floor area is larger than the average split block home in most Perth suburbs, coming in at a huge 567m2 with enough racking to hold 396 pallets.
The total volume is 3,685m3 or 3.7 million Litres of water which is equal to almost 1.5 Olympic Swimming pools or 27 London double deck buses!
