Logistics management

FROSTER is punctual and flexible

At FROSTER, we have our own fleet and team of proficient drivers who are on the road daily to deliver fresh-frozen food to wholesalers, retailers and large-volume users all over the Netherlands. The deliveries are carried out with the utmost care and, moreover, with plenty of know-how. We provide conditioned storage and conditioned transport, we manage stocks and information and connect food manufacturers to the market.

Transport throughout the Netherlands

All our buyers can count on our punctual and reliable delivery services. We travel along fixed routes through the whole of the Netherlands every day. Thanks to the scale of our networks and operations and our short lines of communication, we can afford to be flexible in the arrangements for our route schedules.

Transport in Europe

As well as our distribution services in the Netherlands and Belgium executed by our own fleet, here at FROSTER, we are happy to take on a role of an overall service company to arrange any kind of transport within Europe that you might need.

Conditioned storage

FROSTER: thousands of frozen quality products in stock

Our cutting-edge cold-storage plant has more than 7,000 m² with approximately 9,000 pallet positions – and we’re planning a substantial extension in the very near future. This will give FROSTER all the space we need to maintain stocks of thousands of frozen products and to deliver them immediately..

BRC and SKAL certification

Food manufacturers trust us to take care of their fresh-frozen quality products and we can guarantee them safe, conditioned storage and distribution that comply with HACCP/BRC standards for storage & distribution. FROSTER is BRC certified and meets the standards of HACCP. FROSTER is also SKAL (a certification institute for agricultural products) certified, which means that periodic audits are conducted (please also see: quality management)

A constant temperature

Our energy-efficient plant maintains our freezer warehouses at a constant temperature of minus 22 °C. A digital registration and surveillance system monitors the conditions in our freezer cells to make sure they are stable twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. Technical breakdowns or deviations are reported immediately by the warning system so that we can respond rapidly and, if necessary, take action.

Order picking

FROSTER delivers pick pallets, full pallets and containers

From our freezer warehouse, thousands of fresh-frozen food products travel to consumers daily via the wholesalers and retail channels we supply to. We collect your orders together with the utmost care and, thanks to our very efficiently arranged order system (which also enables us to use EDI links), our order picking runs perfectly smoothly, whether we are piece picking orders, picking entire pallets or orders for container transport.

Financial services

FROSTER can take care of your stock accounts, invoicing and accounts receivable management

Our warehouse management system enables us to report to you on the status of your stocks and the best-before dates of your fresh-frozen products. In addition, FROSTER can take a large part of the administrative work off your hands.

Focus on your core activities

If you like, we can take care of the invoicing and accounts receivable management related to your deliveries by means of EDI links. You, the supplier, simply send us periodic invoices and here at FROSTER, we’ll make sure the payment is done in due time; we will also handle all the administrative matters with buyers. As a manufacturer, you won’t need to worry about the logistics process or the financial side of things, which will leave you free to focus fully on your core business. We would be only too happy to inform you about the options and conditions.

FROSTER can also assist you with your finances

As well as the accounts receivable management and stock management, we can, if you like, take care of (pre)financing the accounts receivable or buy your stocks too. If your company is growing or if your company has large stocks and a considerable need for liquid assets and if you use our full package of services, we can help by examining how your stocks can be financed. Here at Froster, we’d like to help you consider all the options for an overall service; in fact, we can even offer factoring in specific cases.

Quality management

FROSTER: food safety and quality is our main priority

Needless to say, food safety and hygiene are Froster’s main priority. We follow the HACCP/BRC code, on which our quality policy is based and our in-house quality assurance officer ensures that we always comply with those standards.

Product traceability

An important part of our quality assurance system is each product’s traceability: from the time it is received in our freezer warehouse to the time it is delivered to the wholesaler or retailer, we monitor and register the conditions constantly.

Ingredient declarations

The standards for food are becoming increasingly stringent and the ever-changing requirements for mandatory label information and the extensive requirements for disclosing product specifications via the Internet are often time-consuming. If you wish, FROSTER can relieve you of the work involved in processing all your product declarations in the central databanks such as GS1 or PS in Foodservice. Our quality Assurance officer will ensure that the specifications management and/or labelling are handled efficiently and correctly and that they will comply with all the statutory requirements .

HACCP certification

In Europe, manufacturers of food are obliged to draw up a HACCP plan and act accordingly. Here at FROSTER, we can supervise the HACCP certification procedure for you and answer all your questions on this subject. We have all the most recent information on the documentation and certification you need and we would love to help. Froster is BRC certified and meets the standards of HACCP.
