United States Cold Storage (USCS) expects by late 2018 to complete a 7.7 million-cubic-foot public refrigerated warehouse in Denton, TX.
The company broke ground this February on a 40-acre site in Denton, which is strategically located at the intersection of I-35E (Dallas) and I-35W (Fort Worth). Denton is located just north and in between the two cities at the northern edge of the Dallas-Ft. Worth Metroplex.
USCS already operates 32.6 million cubic feet of space at three other warehouses in the Dallas and Ft. Worth market.
“This is an ideal distribution location for customers looking at access to the central United States as well as the DFW Metroplex,” notes George Cruz, Senior Vice President-Southern Region. “USCS continues to see customer growth and interest in this market but does not have the space to accommodate that demand. “Our new location will provide complementary freight consolidation services throughout the Southwest. Along with sister facilities in Laredo, TX, our new Denton site also will support import/export business involving Mexico and Latin America.”
Upon completion, the Phase One site will house 25,712 pallet positions with three rooms and storage temperatures ranging from -20F to +60F. Its fully enclosed, refrigerated shipping and receiving dock will have 22 dock doors and five rail dock doors. As mentioned, the site will feature import/export services and be served by the Kansas City Southern, one of the only rail lines going directly into Mexico.
“We are very excited to continue to expand our footprint in what is one of our strongest markets in the country (the DFW Metroplex),” says Cruz. “At the same time, we look forward to expanding our varied services to customers and the entire perishable industry.”
