The time- and temperature-sensitive reefer cargoes that have been delayed on vessels sitting outside the breakwater in LA/LB are deteriorating quickly and shippers are counting their losses by the hour.
The 309,000-square-foot expansion will be the largest expansion at one time that this facility has ever seen, and it will add more than 48,000 pallet positions in order to provide more storage opportunities for customers.
This expansion provides additional space for the Velocities Multi-Vendor Consolidation program, a distribution solution for food manufacturers who consolidate multiple SKU frozen food orders shipping to major retail, wholesale, and foodservice DCs.
With the expansion, Lineage’s presence in the region will total nearly 1.5 million square feet of refrigerated warehousing space across five warehouses located in Seattle, Algona, Tacoma and Centralia.
The rating system labels fresh fruits, vegetables and flowers as “good,” “better” or “best” to help shoppers make informed choices in the produce and floral departments, and it prohibits some of the most hazardous neurotoxins still allowed...
The TPCC sensor protection case extends the life-span of temperature-sensitive sensors, such as laser distance meters, optical scanners or optical data transfer systems, and enables the use of these sensitive sensors in low-temperature environments.
The proposed rule changes the listing of several hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) from approved to unapproved, which are commonly used in commercial refrigeration equipment, and also proposes changes to stand-alone self-contained cases.
The service, to begin with an Oct. 28 call at Port Manatee, is being introduced by World Direct Shipping and is focused on fulfilling a need for a more prompt link for perishable and nonperishable goods between Mexico and U.S. markets.
For refrigerated freight, the national average spot rate was unchanged at $2.33 per mile as rates declined in central California and across the Midwest, but gained strength elsewhere due to late-season produce harvests.
Construction of the new facility broke ground on May 12th, and upon completion (projected for July 2015) it will be the largest public refrigerated warehouse in North America and the largest single cold storage facility built at one time in the world.
