Less than 90 minutes west of Chicago lies Rochelle, IL, home to two Americold cold storage warehouse facilities. The Rochelle Americold Drive facility is a combination mixing center, featuring traditional cold storage capabilities along with a recently completed Automatic Storage and layer-picking technology.
An ample onsite drop-lot, rail connectivity, and convenient location adjacent to US Interstate 39 and IUS Interstate 88 fortify this Americold site as an ideal location to consolidate, stage, and distribute products throughout the Midwest.
The facility features stable frozen and chilled temperatures, almost 75,000 pallet positions, and the efficiencies of automation supported by the practicalities of a traditional Associate warehouse team, dubbed Americold’s Cool Team.
The opportunities for you to customize logistics fulfillment programs for the full range of your products within a single facility are outstanding. Ongoing, repetitive full-pallet or layer-quantity orders can be fulfilled quickly and efficiently using our automated systems, and more unique or immediate needs can be accommodated using our skilled workforce.
Replenish inventory volumes easily via rail or truck, and leverage our national transportation program for cost-effective FTL and LTL orders.

Rochelle is known as the “Hub City” because of its location at the intersection of several major transportation routes. The first transcontinental highway in the United States, the Lincoln Highway, passed through Rochelle, as did US Interstate 51, one of the first highways to go the full north–south length of the United States.
