Nordic Cold Storage opens new site

Savannha, GA,US: Nordic Cold Storage has opened the first phase of its storage and blast facility, located near the Port of Savannah.

The site has over 18,500sq metres of convertible temperature-controlled storage space and is capable of blasting more than 4,500 tonnes of product per week. This US$30m facility employs 150 workers, but Nordic plans to start a second phase by the end of the year, which will mirror the existing infrastructure. The cold storage warehouse began receiving its first shipments this month.

“Nordic’s announcement extends the Georgia Ports Authority’s power to support Georgia’s vital agricultural industry, in particular, our poultry producers,” said Curtis Foltz, Georgia Ports Authority’s executive director. “The Port of Savannah handles nearly 40% of the nation’s containerized poultry exports, supplied largely by Georgia’s farms. Quality providers like Nordic will give shippers more cost effective options for moving refrigerated commodities to and from international markets.”

As the second busiest export facility in the US, the Port of Savannah contributes significantly to promoting American businesses in the global marketplace. Last year alone, the GPA saw a 3.9% increase in refrigerated cargo exports, totaling nearly 108,000 TEUs (twenty-foot equivalent container units).

“Our Savannah facility is a reflection of Nordic’s commitment to meet the temperature-controlled supply chain requirements that our customers want today and will need tomorrow,” said Don Schoenl, president and chief
executive, Nordic. “Our facility is located at I-95 and Jimmy DeLoach Parkway, only six miles from the Port of Savannah, and provides our customers convenient access to the port and interstate highways.”
