Arcadia to open Phoenix-area cold storage

March 24, 2023
The new facility, set to open later this year, will include a 293,000-sq.-ft., fully convertible freezer and cooler distribution center serving customers in key Western U.S. locations.

Arcadia Cold Storage and Logistics recently agreed to lease and operate a new cold storage facility currently under construction in the Phoenix area.

The facility located west of Phoenix, between U.S. Interstates 17 and 10 in the heart of the Southwest distribution market, will be Arcadia’s fourth set to open in this year. The Phoenix location will include a 293,000-sq.-ft., fully convertible freezer and cooler distribution center with 40,500 pallet positions designed to support a combination of regional distribution, import export activity, and high-volume throughput handling services, the company said.

The site will serve as a hub for the Southwest U.S., with access to key metropolitan markets in Southern California, Arizona, Nevada, Utah, New Mexico, and Colorado, allowing Arcadia to serve food manufacturers and end users more quickly and efficiently.

“Arcadia is once again excited to announce our newest location in the fast-growing Phoenix market,” Chris Hughes, Arcadia CEO, said in a news release. “The facility represents our westernmost site to date and will satisfy our customers’ need for a well-designed and operated building to help manage their product storage and handling requirements.

“We see strong demand for Phoenix as supply chains continue to gravitate slightly eastward and away from increasingly operationally challenging points in Southern California. We look forward to bringing the unique Arcadia customer service experience to this important market along with new, quality jobs to Phoenix and the surrounding area.”
