A new refrigerated warehouse operation has opened in southeast Louisiana.

Advanced Cold Storage is now operating in Baton Rouge, La.

The facility offers 150,000 cubic feet of refrigerated space at 38 degrees along with approximately 500,000 cubic feet of freezer space, according to a news release.

The operation’s refrigerated dock features six loading bays allowing fast loading and unloading, cross-docking, emergency storage space as well as blast-freezing, according to the release.

Near Interstate 10, Interstate 12 and the Interstate 110 corridor, the facility is U.S. Department of Agriculture, Food and Drug Administration and Hazard Analysis & Critical Control Point certified, according to the release.

“In the unlikely event of a natural disaster, we are prepared to secure the investment of your perishable inventory by storing product for current and new customers at our facility,” Donald “Bucks” Barkemeyer, manager, said in the release. “Our 500kw generator will run our entire facility boasting a 3,500 gallon diesel fuel tank.”
