Nordic Logistics and Warehousing has doubled capacity at its Savannah location, holding a ribbon cutting for the new 200,000-square-foot cold storage and blast freezing facility.

Nordic opened its initial 200,000 square-foot cold storage warehouse in Savannah on April 11, 2013, and since opening the Phase I facility has exported over half a million tons of frozen food since its opening. Nordic’s Phase II building can hold more than 20,000 tons of cargo at a time. Ross Maple, Director of Business Strategy for Nordic, said the added space will bring the company’s total Savannah capacity to almost 50,000 tons of cargo.

“Exactly three years ago, Nordic opened its doors here in Savannah to give our customers the logistical advantages that come with one of America’s most efficient ports, combined with the superior connectivity of Interstates 95 and 16,” said Don Schoenl, President and Chief Executive Officer of Nordic.

“Savannah handles 40 percent of all frozen poultry sent overseas, more than any other port in the U.S.,” said Griff Lynch, incoming executive director at the Georgia Ports Authority. “Nordic’s announcement today, along with on-terminal improvements, positions Savannah to continue serving as the export gateway for refrigerated cargo in the U.S. Southeast.””

“To be able to offer companies access to the world via our ports is one of our major economic development selling points as we recruit businesses to Georgia,” said Georgia Department of Economic Development Commissioner Chris Carr.  “Nordic’s commitment to Savannah with the expansion of their cutting-edge temperature-controlled storage facility is a testament to the impact the Port of Savannah has around the globe.”
