Preferred Freezer Services opens new state-of-the-art temperature controlled warehouse

Almost 300 cold chain partners, community business leaders and senior executives attended the openng of the automated warehouse that encompasses more than 10 million cubic feet.

This “lights-out” automated freezer is Preferred Freezer Services’ third automated operation in the United States and fifth to open worldwide.
