BEVERAGES & FOOD CHAIN


United States Cold Storage Inc. ("USCS") has completed an 8.5 million-cubic-foot expansion at its Quakertown East site in Pennsylvania. The project has effectively added two new construction phases and the three-year-old cold store now ranks as USCS' largest facility, with 15 million cubic feet under one roof.

Quakertown East opened in August 2014, with 6.5 million cubic feet of storage space. USCS broke ground for the addition in December 2016 and has added 29,344 additional pallet positions and 28 more dock doors for shipping and receiving. All but one of the rooms at Quakertown East feature fully flexible temperature controls (-20°F to +36°F).

Served by the Norfolk Southern Railroad, Quakertown East offers multi-vendor consolidation programmes, cross-docking and product tempering services. Certified by the USDA (US Department of Agriculture) and FDA (Food and Drug Administration), the site also offers managed logistics, shuttle and brokerage services.
