FACTS ABOUT OUR SERVICES
FACTS ABOUT OUR SERVICES
Manawatu Cold Storage is situated on a large site on Kawakawa Road, 3 minutes from Feilding and 16 minutes form Palmerston North. We’ve been in this location since 1975 which has given us over 40 years experience in managing the daily challenges of perishable products arriving and leaving. Our team runs like a well-oiled machine.
Our premises are well equipped to manage frequent truck arrivals and multiple stock loading and unloading. We have:
• 6 storage rooms, ranging from ambient to -20°.
• Areas for sorting, hand picking and weight listing.
• Areas for long term and short term storage, seasonal storage, and for any size customer -large or small.
• We’re open from 7am to 3.30, and are available outside these hours, where practical, to suit customers needs -by arrangement, of course.
We think that our Mancold team are the best in the business. Our people are highly experienced and knowledgeable about export and freight logistics, certification and compliance, inventory management and quality control within a cold store environment. We know that the no.1 thing that our customers want is to have their stock looked after, and for it to be where they want, when they want it, in peak condition. Every day we give 100% to make that happen!

Mighty Mix Dog Tukka
They’re amazing, absolutely fantastic and pretty flexible. They have forklift drivers who are well trained, thinking people and who make an extra effort to get my pallet into my van without damaging it.
They provide much more than a cold store -because it is a very dynamic business and things can change at the drop of a hat the MCS team need to be on top of all the logistics. Plus they do sorting, liaise with freight co’s, resolving shipping issues -it’s changing all the time.
MCS are excellent! Day to day I can’t fault them. They always have answers when I need them. Business is full on and they are always accommodating of last minute requests. They make my day so much easier –and are so easy to deal with. ‘Why can’t they all be like Manawatu’
Rangitikei Meat Distributors
We have a very good relationship with ManawatuCold Storage. They are accessible day and night and we can easily pop over and meet with them. They handle urgent requirements very well -they’ve never said ‘no, they can’t do it’ I’m pretty happy with the way things are.
