Cold Train Expands Refrigerated Container Fleet

Cold Train expanded its Washington State-based refrigerated container fleet to more than 400 state-of-the-art Hyundai 53-foot containers last fall.

As a result of continued demand, Cold Train, Quincy, Wash., added new destinations on the East Coast and is now delivering refrigerated cargo from Washington and Oregon to 24 states, including Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, Wisconsin, Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee. Cold Train also began regular express service from Washington and Oregon to Toronto, Ontario.

Cold Train departs both Quincy, Wash., and Portland, Ore., six days a week with expedited door-to-door service to the above-mentioned Midwest and East Coast locations. In addition to now shipping frozen foods and fresh produce eastbound to 24 states, Cold Train is bringing refrigerated and frozen foods and some dry goods back from the Midwest and East Coast to Washington and Oregon. Cold Train ships loaded or full containers both directions to maximize utilization of equipment, which helps to reduce costs and provide both an inbound and outbound service for shippers and receivers.

In early 2010, Cold Train launched the Cold Train Express Intermodal Service in partnership with BNSF Railway Co., Fort Worth, Texas, and the Port of Quincy in Washington.
