Second US Cold Storage Facility Now on Line in Sacramento
United States Cold Storage (USCS) has officially opened its second public refrigerated warehouse in Sacramento, California. Located in McClellan Business Park (at a site within decommissioned McClellan Air Force Base), the 6.8 million-cubic-foot facility is a multi-temperature (-20F to +45F) operation offering more than 31,000 pallet positions, 20 dock doors, and a rail siding served by both the Union Pacific and BNSF railroads.
USCS McClellan is conveniently positioned on the north end of Sacramento, directly off the Interstate 80 corridor and only a few miles from the Interstate 5 interchange. Furthermore, it’s not far from sister USCS warehouses in Tracy and Turlock, California.
The Sacramento coldstore is fully racked with 65-foot refrigerated docks and multiple storage rooms, each with flexible storage temperature controls. In addition to traditional storage and distribution services, the site offers multi-vendor consolidation, cross-docking, a dedicated quality assurance lab, a temperature-controlled handling room, a Cascade CO2 refrigeration
system, 100% LED lighting, high definition surveillance system, and fire suppression technology.
Steve Palefsky, a 16-year company veteran recently promoted to general manager of the USCS McClellan facility, commented: “Our nearby sites will be used to help customers better manage freight during periods of seasonal high storage demands. These close by locations also will provide better multi-vendor consolidation opportunities for our customers. This will result in efficient, cost effective shipping solutions.”
