Frozen Assets Cold Storage LLC will begin third-party logistics operations in mid-October in a new 7-million-cubic-foot public refrigerated warehouse facility on Chicago’s near-Southwest side, using Delfour Corp’s SmartEnterprise 2 software as its management and control system.
The 250,000 square-foot, single-level facility is at 2635 South Western Avenue, and has an 18,000-pallet freezer, a 10,000-pallet position cooler, and three –35° blast cells—each with space for 45 pallets. It has 22 truck bays that open to a 40,000-sq-ft inbound-outbound dock. In a departure from other warehousing operations, it also has a 10-door refrigerated rail siding.
Founded in March 2004, Frozen Assets Cold Storage plans to have 10 to 15 such facilities in place within 10 years, with a growth plan that calls for a new 3PL facility to open every year. The company’s SmartEnterprise 2 system is hosted at Delfour’s data center in Markham, Ontario, Canada, but the firm intends to install the system on-site in the future.
