Produce Show Daily Tuesday, June 11, 2019 4 Americold Expands Savannah Campus The Port of Savannah, Georgia is the fastest growing and most conveniently located perishable-handling port in the United States. Now part of the U.S. Department of Agriculture's In-Transit Cold Treatment pilot program, it can accommodate perishable products from all South American ports asa well as imports from Spain, Morocco, Italy and Asia. Starting September 1st, 2019, imports from South Africa can be han- dled through Americold's PortFresh facility, too. The Savannah, Georgia facility is the only temperature-controlled logistics solutions provider from Wilmington, Delaware to Miami, Florida with experi- ence in drayage and container loading, unloading and washing, along with knowledge and experience in the han- dling of delicate fruit and vegetable pro- duce. Even asparagus, which is typically an airfreight product, can be handled through the facility. The location is a customs bonded warehouse with on-site inspectors, is a certified cold treatment facility and offers on-site USDA inspections, fumigation for up to 600 pallets at a time and bag- ging/packing activities. Americold's PortFresh facility offers faster access to products coming in from Asia and South America when compared to ports further north, enhancing shelf life and reducing transportation costs for both growers and importers. Americold is expanding the Savannah, Georgia campus to incorpo- rate extensive blast-freezing capabilities, 37k pallets of frozen temperature storage and value-adding process rooms. The ini- tial expansion of the campus will come online in Q2 2020. Situated on I16 at exit 148 and just a few miles from I95, Americold's PortFresh location is well connected to road routes, and already has a rapid road connection to the Port of Savannah. But with the expected com- pletion of the Jimmy Deloach parkway in the next few years, A m e r i c o l d 's P o r t F r e s h location will have a direct express route into the port so journey becomes even more effi- cient. Savannah is evolving for the future. The Georgia Port Authority, the port's operator, is heavily investing infrastruc- ture and capabilities – deepening the chan- nel and installing another crane. Ships from all of the major steam ship lines call at the port more than 35 times a week. If you have perishable product to and from anywhere east of the Rockies, Americold's PortFresh facility in Savannah, Georgia avoids the extended transit time, congestion and premium pricing of your traditional channels.

Oser Founder Improved Efficiency, Versatility Among Key Benefits Offered by Triangle Package Machinery Kim Magon-Haller, Marketing Manager, Triangle Package Machinery, explains recent developments the company has made to help customers in the produce industry improve production and effi- ciency. PSD: Tell our readers about Triangle Package Machinery. KM: With thousands of machine instal- lations throughout North America and the world, Triangle has a reputation for applying state-of-the-art innovation to help our customers become more com- petitive. Founded in 1923, today the family's third generation continues a tradition of innovation in packaging machinery. Triangle's packaging solu- tions for the produce industry include vertical form fill seal (VFFS) baggers, combination weighers and a rotary depositor/tray loading system. We offer superior engineering and a complete manufacturing facility at our Chicago, Illinois headquarters, as well as dedicat- ed service and support throughout North America. PSD: What are the latest technologies from Triangle Package Machinery? KM: Our X-Series VFFS bagging machines offer many unique advantages, such as superior sanitation, ease of oper- ation and state-of-the-art technology. The latest addition to the X-Series is our Model XYRJ vertical form fill seal (VFFS) bagger, which features an easily rotatable sealing jaw to run multiple package styles on the same machine, including Stand-Up Pouches (SUP), 3- sided seal bags, gusseted and pillow bags. Rotating the jaw requires no tools or complicated equipment and offers quick and easy changeover in less than 10 minutes. Since introducing Model XYRJ in late 2015, we've enhanced its design with an easily interchangeable back seal that allows users to switch between different film structures. In addition, the bagger offers an optional transverse or longitudinal zipper applicator to help packagers meet consumer demand for resealable pack- ages. Ultrasonic sealing is an option that is available on all of our X-Series VFFS baggers. This technology offers numer- ous advantages to produce packagers, including labor and energy savings, less rejects and wasted product, and improved production and OEE. Ultrasonic sealing is an alternative to heat sealing that can seal through product and push it com- pletely out of the seal, provide 100 per- cent seal integrity and less rejects, and help produce packagers achieve savings on labor, film, energy and wasted prod- uct. In addition to ultrasonic sealing, Triangle has been working on many innovations, including our new product stager. The product stager reduces product streaming by compacting the dose from the scale to the bagger, which pre- vents product in the seals and increases OEE. PSD: How have food safety concerns affected the products you offer or the produce packaging industry as a whole? KM: For several years now, Triangle has offered customers a choice of sanitation levels when it comes to vertical form fill seal (VFFS) baggers. These include stainless-steel, stainless-steel washdown and USDA/3-A certified models. To sim- plify cleaning and maintenance and help food packagers comply with FSMA, our equipment includes features such as a pitched top plate, continuous electropol- ished weldments, pivoting control box, eliminated crevices and stainless-steel food grade motors.
