With growing regional demand, United States Cold Storage (USCS) answered the need for a third Pennsylvania warehouse, adding a new site in Quakertown, Pa., to complement nearby operations in Bethlehem and Hazleton. USCS’ new Quakertown operation adds density to an already robust consolidated shipping program. This new location enables USCS to continue to grow its multi-vendor consolidation program and, in turn, drive down shipping costs for current customers. Likewise, it literally adds more capacity as USCS grows as a preferred regional partner.
This addition to the USCS network offers another reliable, efficient option for temperature-controlled warehousing and distribution services. Using advanced, proprietary technology, a well trained staff and more than 100 years of experience, USCS can manage any size program with industry-leading efficiency and accuracy.
USCS Quakertown sits on a 40.1-acre parcel with ample room to grow. At an opening size that spans 6.5 million cubic feet (phase one), this flexible facility can store product from -20 degrees F to +40 degrees F. It has 29,000 pallet positions, 27 refrigerated dock doors and state-of-the-art CO² refrigeration.
Quakertown’s building features four rooms—most of which will be dedicated to refrigerated storage. As such, USCS plans not to erect a wall between the refrigerated, enclosed truck dock and storage area. This increases operating efficiencies by making it easier and faster to retrieve product and provide greater visibility within the facility as a whole.
