Tru-Seal at Coles Sydney Distribution Centre

The operational scale of this Australian supermarket giant is mind-boggling and their Eastern Creek Distribution Centre is simply massive. 

These project photos relate to the cold storage complex, where one side of the enormous building is dedicated to inwards goods arriving from suppliers across the country, and the other side dedicated to outwards goods, processed, packaged and ready for supermarket shelves.

Like a well-oiled machine, the centre's operation is comparable to some of the world's busiest airports, with loading docks working like terminal gates with very high traffic turnover. Maintaining the impeccable standard of operation includes first-class environmental control at all loadout areas, so chilled goods never alter from their optimum temperature level at any point in the logistical process. This requires durable and reliable dock sealing equipment to ensure cold air does not escape the store and the warm outside temperature will not find its way in.

Tru-Bilt was contracted to supply 300 Tru-Seal™ Inflatable Dock Seals for Coles, with 50 installed at this complex alone, and the remainder distributed to supermarkets around Australia. This is a product we recommended 100% for keeping Coles operations up to the standards necessary for running a supermarket chain of this scale.
