FreezPak Logistics, a provider of frozen, cooler, and dry storage combined with industry-leading third-party logistics services, announced the opening of a new location in Bedford Park, IL. The fourth site to open in 2023, the facility expands Freezpak’s footprint into the Midwest, providing a critical access point for transcontinental operations.
The Chicago facility encompasses 212,807 SF of temperature-controlled warehouse and will house 30 loading docks, 30,000 pallet positions, 51 container plug-ins and 131 additional car parking.
