Cold Storage

For decades, cold storage has played an important role in helping ensure the food we eat is safe and fresh. From farm and producer to retailer and end user, cold storage makes it all seamless and safe with up-to-date technology, transportation, and tracking. It’s safe to say that, without proper cold storage, many of your favorite foods would be much harder to find or even unavailable to purchase.


Both our Austin and Albert Lea, MN facilities can provide the storage space your business requires to ensure your products can move quickly, safely, and efficiently. Our Albert Lea location, with its capacity of 3.5 million cubic feet, can handle up to 12 trucks at a time. It also has rail service available through the Union Pacific Railroad and can handle as many as six freight cars at a time. Austin, with a capacity of 1.85 million cubic feet, can handle up to seven trucks at a time. Both facilities offer UPS and FedEx shipping. No matter where your product needs to go, we have the capability and capacity to store it and then transport it to its final destination.

Cold Storage Services

Transporting a product from the producer to the purchaser and storing it along the way usually involves more than a truck and a place for it to sit. Our cold storage facilities are capable of providing blast and room freezing, cooler storage, and, if needed, ambient dry storage. We also provide crucial services including packaging, boxing, and labeling, as well as cross docking, pooling, and freight consolidation. Simply stated, we provide the best cold storage services and facilities available to safely and efficiently protect and interchange our clients’ products.
