Henningsen Cold Storage, Richland, Wash., was selected by the Port of Benton to operate a new freight Transload Center in Richland, Wash. The Port teamed up with the State of Washington, the City of Richland, and the Tri-City & Olympia Railroad, to build the Center at the Horn Rapids Industrial Park located off SR 240 on Kingsgate Road.

Henningsen said this center is being built to handle increased demand for shipping products by rail across America. The facility is temperature controlled and can handle frozen, refrigerated and dry products from a wide variety of growers and manufacturers locally, regionally, national and international. The new facility is expected to be operational in September 2008.
