United States Cold Storage Expands Again in Dallas
Voorhees, New Jersey-headquartered United States Cold Storage (USCS) recently completed a 5.3 million-cubic-foot, third phase addition at its public refrigerated warehouse (PRW) in Dallas, Texas.
Built in 2013, the facility is located at 2225 N. Cockrell Hill Road and works with nearby USCS warehouses in Fort Worth and Arlington, Texas, to serve the Dallas Metroplex region. For its part, USCS Dallas is a strategic location to efficiently serve key markets throughout Texas, Oklahoma and Louisiana.
The Dallas operation now offers 14.9 million cubic feet (517,566 square feet) of cold storage space with room for 56,809 pallets stored at temperatures ranging from -20 to +40F. The high-volume truck and rail distribution center, which is serviced by Union Pacific, has 67 dock doors and eight rail doors. The facility also offers multi-vendor consolidation, blast freezing, and a wide range of local cartage services.
“The Dallas Metroplex area has been a growing market for USCS. After building the first and second phase sections at our new Dallas warehouse, we’ve now completed this phase three addition just three years later,” said George Cruz, the company’s senior vice president for the southern region. “Throughout 2016, our Metroplex warehouses have been at capacity or near capacity.
