Crowley opens New Miami cold storage site

Medley, FL, US: Crowley Maritime Corporation and Customized Brokers, its Miami-based customs brokerage company, have opened a new cold storage site, called ‘Crowley Fresh’.

Crowley Fresh features multiple humidity and temperature-controlled coolers and is open continuously to store and handle perishables arriving from Latin and South America, the Caribbean, Europe, Asia and the Far East in South Florida for import and export.

The storage site is ideal for perishable storage or may be used as an in-transit consolidation/deconsolidation point.

Crowley Fresh features high-tech cooling and monitoring equipment, including forced air precooling, which can be adjusted to meet and maintain varying temperature requirements. With 400,000 total cubic feet of refrigerated space, the facility also offers additional storage space for cargo supplies and non-refrigerated materials.

“When you’re shipping temperature-sensitive goods, every second counts. Shippers of perishables need a reliable and committed cold-chain logistics partner who has industry-leading specialized equipment and experience,” said Crowley’s Nelly Yunta, vice president, sales, marketing and customer care.
