Chatham, N.J.-based Preferred Freezer Services (PFS) has opened its newest facility, Big Bear Los Angeles, with 95,000 frozen pallet spaces. It is the company’s seventh in the Los Angeles area and thirty-eighth in the United States.
The state-of-the-art, BRC-certified warehouse is near Interstate 5 and minutes from downtown Los Angeles. Covering an entire city block, it features 32 docks doors all with levelers and seals. Big Bear is operating with a 24-hour operation, 6 days a week.
“We are thrilled to officially open the doors of our industry-leading public refrigerated warehouse in downtown Los Angeles,” said Mike Townsend, director of sales and operations for the Western region. He added that “the entire Los Angeles market area has been starved for a temperature-controlled warehouse which has the space to consolidate all their goods under one roof. Big Bear delivers just that, with nearly 95,000 frozen pallet spaces in a beautiful new facility. When you add Big Bear’s capacity to Preferred Freezer’s advanced temperature-controlled technology and industry leading customer service, the combination is more than just good for the Los Angeles region, it is a game changer for our customers.”
Justin Ernest, sales manager of Big Bear Los Angeles, noted that the facility, with 24-hour operations for all inbound/outbound activity, will alleviate the challenges faced with capacity and driver dwell times that the Los Angeles market has faced for the last few years.
“The size, flexibility, and customer service that this facility provides, will set a new standard for the Los Angeles cold storage market and we are excited to be able to lead the charge,” he said.
