FLEXCOLD UNVEILS FIRST FACILITY IN JACKSONVILLE

FlexCold’s new Jacksonville, Fla., warehouse features a mobile racking system that increases storage capacity by 45%.

Jacksonville, Fla.-based FlexCold opened its first facility last month three miles from the Port of Jacksonville and one day’s drive from 98 million consumers. The energy-efficient, state-of-the-art cold storage warehouse spans 150,000 square feet and offers 25,000 pallet positions. Divided into four primary areas, it includes two convertible rooms that can be used for refrigerated or frozen products, a freezer room where temperatures remain below zero, and a blast freeze room where products such as poultry can be frozen to zero degrees within 36 hours. 

Described as an energy-efficient, customer-focused alternative to aging legacy facilities, the state-of-the-art warehouse features a mobile racking system that increases storage capacity by 45%, a 50-foot clear height that reduces average travel time, a 70-foot-deep loading dock to ease congestion and inefficient product moves, and a roof-mounted refrigeration system that frees up valuable floor space.
