Arcadia Cold Storage and Logistics has entered into an agreement to lease and operate a new refrigerated warehouse that is currently under construction west of Phoenix, Arizona, between US Interstates 17 and 10 in the heart of the Southwest distribution market. It will offer 293,000 square feet of fully convertible freezer and cooler space with 40,500 pallet positions designed to support a combination of regional distribution, import-export activity and high-volume throughput handling services.
This will mark the fourth facility that Atlanta, Georgia-headquartered Arcadia will open in Q3 2023 in support of its national cold storage platform in strategic markets across the United States. The site will serve as its hub for the Southwest US operations, with access to key metropolitan markets in Southern California, Arizona, Nevada, Utah, New Mexico and Colorado.
“The facility represents our westernmost site to date and will satisfy our customers’ need for a well-designed and operated building to help manage their product storage and handling requirements. We see strong demand for Phoenix as supply chains continue to gravitate slightly eastward and away from increasingly operationally challenging points in Southern California,” said Arcadia Cold CEO Chris Hughes.
