GOGO Cold Rooms

GOGO cold rooms have been operational since 2011 and is proud to be part of the GOGO Group of companies as well as EKM Exporters.

Our experienced and passionate employees pride themselves in giving the best service, with clear and constant communication with client.

We started small with a capacity of 1000 high cube pallets and only servicing citrus producers that exported to non-special market countries.

Since then we are proud to say that we were able to grow into the facility we are currently.

As the only inland cold room in South Africa approved by DALRRD to do Phytosanitary inspections, we as Gogo cold rooms can now offer the following services:

    • Precooling and Handling of all non-special markets Citrus and Grapes
    • Precooling and Handling of special markets Citrus and Grapes including China, Taiwan, Indonesia, and Mauritius to name a few
    • Storage of a variety of vegetables including potatoes and carrots
    • DALRRD inspections for special markets

Our facility has the capacity to store 7 000 high cube pallets with 1 000 high cube cold treatment slots.

Our main focus is to ensure that the client that receives their fruit from our facility receives only the best possible quality and service delivery. To achieve this, the fruit must be stored at the required temperature as soon as possible, loaded in the container as quickly as possible, and delivered to the client as promptly as possible. The facility is equipped with a fully computerized temperature control system and runs on the Paltrack Pro program to control our stock. At GOGO Cold Rooms, we can meet even the most complex loading requirements the flick of a switch.

Onsite PPECB and DAFF inspectors oversee the loading process. Each of the inspectors are responsible for a specific area, this ensures that all areas receive equal attention. We are dedicated to maintaining the perfect temperature and to making sure that all of the pallets used are in good condition. We do our very best to ensure that your fruit arrives in the best possible condition. At GOGO, we make it our priority to treat all the pallets, as if they are our own.

Our absolute attention to detail and our hands-on management approach, with regards to cold storage, in conjunction with our state-of-the-art facilities constantly helps us moving forward on our QUEST FOR FRUIT EXCELLENCE.
