FREEZE IT

 

Computerized refrigeration system provides flexibility. This system controls temperature variances throughout the warehouse while sealed truck bays, battery-powered lifts, 40-degree fahrenheit refrigerated docks and a back up sp diesel generator help maintain constant temperatures for both truck and rail shipments. The system also allows our blast freezers to quick freeze up to a half million pounds of product in 72 hours or less with temperatures below -20 degrees Fahrenheit. In addition, we have the flexibility to almost instantly convert freezer space to cooler space in order to accommodate a variety of shipments, temperature requirements and seasonality. This flexibility has helped our customers with special projects ranging from hams, ice cream and blood plasma storage to the tempering (slacking) of fresh frozen product.

 

COOL IT

 

Separate coolers and state-of-the-art inventory management prevent the co-mingling of meat, poultry and dairy products so your products can be maintained and shipped in the same condition in which they arrived.

 

DOCK IT

 

Modern docking facility streamlines loading and unloading. Shipping is efficient and downtime is minimized with over 80 trailer staging positions, 42 dock doors and a 3-car rail siding. By utilizing our shipping expertise and knowledge of the industry, we can cross-dock, pool the resources of sister companies and different customers and consolidate freight shipments to save time and money. We've even built a separate lounge for drivers so they can relax and catch up on paperwork. Central alarm systems are monitored by a third party security company and all systems are controlled electronically. As an environmentally conscious operation, there's even a dedicated recycling dock for cardboard, white paper and shrink wrap.
