Third-party food logistics company FreezPak Logistics, will open a 103,000-square-foot location in Philadelphia, the company announced on June 10.
This is the Carteret-based firm’s first time expanding into the Philadelphia market. The facility will offer all temperature zones dry, cooler and frozen, and boasts 15 loading docks, 26 trailer positions and car parking for more than 80.
A family-owned business that will celebrate its 20th anniversary this August, FreezPak has provided customized distribution services since its founding in 2001. It is scheduled to open a location in Elizabeth in the fourth quarter of 2021.
Consistent with FreezPak’s other facilities, the Philadelphia location will offer cross docking, transportation, repacking, overseas container plug-in, USDA and FDA–and do it all within six miles of Packer Avenue Marine Terminal.
FreezPak’s newest venture was a result of the demand for expansion into other markets. “Every day we are being pushed by our clients to open facilities in every major market,” said co-CEO Michael Saoud. “We are already designing an automated facility in Philadelphia as we are anticipating max occupancy in a few months.”
The Philadelphia facility is projected to open June 21, 2021, and FreezPak will soon announce another location in northern New Jersey that will meet the continually growing demand for cold storage space.
