Crowley Logistics opens new cold storage facility in Jacksonville

Facility will support customers shipping between Jacksonville and Puerto Rico.

Crowley Logistics opened a CrowleyFresh cold storage facility within its West 30th Street distribution center in Jacksonville.

It’s the second Florida facility for the company. The other is in Miami.

The facility comprises humidity and temperature-controlled coolers capable of receiving, storing and handling perishables transiting between the U.S., Latin America and the Caribbean, with other services, including export processing.

The facility also will support customers using the company’s forthcoming LNG-powered combination container/roll-on roll-off ships between Jacksonville and San Juan, Puerto Rico.

The facility features cooling and monitoring equipment in two separate chambers. The chambers can be adjusted to meet and maintain specific temperature requirements and offer additional options for frozen goods, temporary or overflow storage.

The Jacksonville and Miami warehouses have more than 400,000 cubic feet of refrigerated space and about 117,000 square feet of dry storage space for nonperishables. 

CrowleyFresh is a partnership between Crowley Logistics and Miami-based Customized Brokers.
