Millard Refrigerated Services diversifies

Omaha, NB, US: Millard Refrigerated Services is developing its property in Theodore, AL. The 300-acre Millard Maritime includes a 1,600 ft. wharf and rail, interstate and barge access that will increase its focus on diversified cargo and shipping activities.

Millard will invest in rail and property infrastructure to accommodate the handling of new export cargo like aggregates, iron ore fines, wood and non-hazardous chemicals. The company will also dedicate resources to increase its growing import and export business, while preparing to handle additional cargo.

“We’ve determined there is a better business opportunity for Millard Maritime to utilise the facility with a wide array of new and existing commodity lines, and developed a master plan for the property that takes advantage of its full freight handling capabilities. We are now starting to execute that plan and believe it will result in a very vibrant operation within the next few years,” said Lance Larsen, chief executive, Millard Refrigerated Services.

Millard was founded in 1963 by Larry Larsen and continues to be a family-owned and operated business that has added supply chain solutions like transportation, re-distribution, high pressure processing and import/export to it original warehousing offer. More recently, the company has expanded its Attalla, Alabama and Sunnyvale, Texas distribution centres to accommodate growth.

Millard Refrigerated Services is the third-largest refrigerated warehouse and distribution company in the United States.
