These facilities support local and regional storage and value-added service requirements. We can offer simple storage or a full temperature-controlled supply chain operation from these sites.
These facilities are typically physically attached, by a door or conveyor, or very close-by to customer production facilities. The dedicated sites offer significant time-savings in transportation, sorting, packing, blast-freezing, and storage due to their close proximity. Many offer rail connections to enable large-volume product distribution.
Situated close to major ocean ports, these sites offer container loading/unloading, drayage, inspection and documentation support, cross-docking, and some transloading services to support importing and exporting customers. We even have sites in heavyweight corridors to handle densely-packed containers.
These facilities are the regional hubs for our transportation programs. We build truckload consolidations that depart on scheduled trucks calling on every major food retailer and food distributor DC in the region. Strategically located to optimize transportation routes and our customers’ delivery destinations, we also shuttle between Regional Consolidation Centers so that you can deliver in to one center but benefit from our national delivery network – perfect as you grow regionally and nationally.
Maybe you’d prefer to own the real estate but still want to benefit from our experience and Americold Operating System by utilizing our Associates, Management, and Processes. We can do that too. We bring AOS to you to coordinate facility operations, allowing you to focus on your own core activities.
