The cooling and monitoring equipment, which includes forced-air cooling, can be adjusted to meet and maintain varying temperature requirements.
With 400,000 total cubic feet of refrigerated space, the facility offers additional storage space for cargo supplies and unrefrigerated materials.
“When you’re shipping temperature-sensitive goods, every second counts,” Nelly Yunta, Crowley’s vice president of sales, marketing and customer care, said in the release.
