Crowley Logistics recently announced the opening of a new CrowleyFresh cold storage facility in Jacksonville, Florida U.S.A. This is the companies second CrowleyFresh in the State of Florida.

The warehouse facility is strategically located and expands their services for cold-chain throughout South Florida into Northeast Florida enabling them to have a new gateway to the Southeast.

The renovated warehouse now features temperature and humidity controlled coolers which have the capacity to handle and store perishables transiting from the U.S. to Latin America and the Caribbean along with providing numerous value-added services such as export processing.

The new facility is tailored towards an in-transit consolidation/deconsolidation point for customers with perishable goods and for those customers who wish to combine perishable and dry loads together for a cost-effective transit.

Due to the strategic location, the facility can service multiple trade lanes and is perfectly located to accommodate customers utilizing the company’s soon to be launched, LNG-powered combination container/Roll-On Roll-Off (ConRo) ships that will operate between Jacksonville and San Juan, Puerto Rico.

Crowley Logistics and Commercial Services Senior Vice President and General Manager, Frank Larkin said about the facility, “This second cold storage facility in Florida represents the latest in a series of service enhancements designed to increase the velocity of our customers’ supply chains, decrease total landed costs and offer seamless and reliable collaboration among the varying components of transport,” further adding, “Our cold-chain experts can develop quality solutions utilizing this new facility for shippers who have full loads of perishables or for those who want to combine smaller loads to create economies of scale.”

The new CrowleyFresh facility features high-tech monitoring equipment in two separate chambers which can be adjusted to varying temperatures depending on the goods being stored there. All cooler chambers maintain food safety due to the insulation and tight seals used, eliminating the possibility of cross-contamination. The facility also offers over 100,000 square feet of dry storage space for general cargo and non-refrigerated goods.
