AmeriCold Logistics LLC has opened a facility in Heyburn, Idaho.
The 160,000-square-foot temperature-controlled building has capacity to hold more than 17,000 pallets, which includes 10,000 steel-racked and 7,000 bulk-storage positions, according to a news release.
The Atlanta-based Americold plans to use the facility which, includes 10 truck doors and seven rail dock doors, to serve the local agricultural market, according to the release.
The facility’s proximity to the Union Pacific Railroad and Interstate 84 should provide customers improved transportation alternatives to suit their distribution models, according to the release.
The building can maintain temperatures ranging from minus 5 degrees to 50 degrees Fahrenheit.
The operation features a range of services, including cross-docking, labeling and ticketing, product tempering security and export full-truckload and less-than truckload consolidation will also be available, according to the release.
The operation joins two other Americold Idaho facilities, which are in Burley and Nampa.
“Our customers have told us — and our research has shown — that the Magic Valley region is poised for exponential growth potential in the dairy and agriculture industries, and the demand for temperature-controlled, secure storage is rapidly increasing,” Fred Boehler, president and chief operating officer, said in the release.
AmeriCold provides temperature-controlled warehousing and logistics to the food industry.
