It is accredited by the Department of Agriculture to cater to products like fruits and vegetables and likewise, meat, fisheries and aquatic products.
ALogis Artico Biñan is located within the 471-hectare Laguna Technopark, one of ALLHC’s premier industrial estates spanning the cities of Sta. Rosa and Biñan. It is accessible via the South Luzon Expressway (SLEX), just 6km away from the facility.
“We continue to adapt to changes brought about by the global pandemic. As we see a rising demand for cold chain solutions, we are grateful to Technofreeze for trusting AyalaLand Logistics Holdings to be the next owner and operator of their facility. With the resources they have provided, we are able to further our goal of becoming the leading operator of industrial parks and real estate logistics in the country,” says Patrick C. Avila, ALLHC Head of Industrial Parks and Real Estate Logistics.

We look forward to serving valued customers with their cold storage requirements for years to come,” says Maria Rowena M. Tomeldan, ALLHC President and CEO.
