Milaha, a Qatar-based maritime and logistics conglomerate, has inaugurated Phase I of the 400,000 sqm Milaha Logistics City, with a 35,000 sqm warehousing facility dedicated to temperature-controlled cargo. The new facility marks Milaha’s entry into cold chain solutions, and will cater to the food industry, pharmaceuticals, and other fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG).

The facility is divided into a frozen storage area, a chilled storage area, and a temperature-controlled storage area, ranging from -22 to +22 Celsius. The facility uses state-of-the-art and environmentally friendly technology, which earned it a sustainability award at the Gulf Organisation for Research and Development (GORD) summit recently held in Qatar. The new facility is also one of the highest in Qatar with 22 meters which allows more storage per sqm than many existing facilities in Qatar.

Milaha’s President and CEO Abdulrahman Essa Al Mannai said: Milaha Logistics City is a significant investment on our part in Qatar’s supply chain infrastructure and, in particular, cold chain capabilities, and we expect it to be a key enabler for logistics growth in Qatar.
