Arcadia Cold Storage and Logistics has entered into an agreement to lease and operate a new cold storage facility that is currently under construction and located west of Phoenix between U.S. Interstates 17 and 10 in the heart of the Southwest distribution market.

This marks Arcadia's fourth facility that will open in the third quarter of 2023 in support of their national cold storage platform in strategic markets across the United States. The Phoenix Cold Storage Facility will be a 293,000-square-foot fully convertible freezer and cooler distribution center facility with 40,500 pallet positions designed to support a combination of regional distribution, import export activity and high-volume throughput handling services.

The site will serve as a hub for the Southwest U.S. with access to key metropolitan markets in Southern California, Arizona, Nevada, Utah, New Mexico, and Colorado. Phoenix is going through a boom in distribution center growth and the facility will play an important role in allowing Arcadia to serve food manufacturing and end user demand more quickly and efficiently.

"Arcadia is once again excited to announce our newest location in the fast-growing Phoenix market. The facility represents our westernmost site to date and will satisfy our customers' need for a well-designed and operated building to help manage their product storage and handling requirements,” said Arcadia Cold CEO Chris Hughes. “We see strong demand for Phoenix as supply chains continue to gravitate slightly eastward and away from increasingly operationally challenging points in Southern California. We look forward to bringing the unique Arcadia customer service experience to this important market along with new, quality jobs to Phoenix and the surrounding area."
