Cold Storage Expansion: Off the Drawing Board and Into the Ground

Home > Cold Chain > Cold Storage Expansion: Off the Drawing Board and Into the Ground

By the time you read this, the concrete has likely been poured in the Phase 4 expansion to our cold storage Chicago Consolidation Center. There will be more concrete and steel in the months ahead as we build out our plan, more safety and mechanical systems, racks and doors and in the spring of 2015, more very cold air. This is all to improve our services to customers and businesses alike.

That’s all good and exciting. Yet it was the actions of people that paved the way for this noticeable addition to our service offering. The continual “Yes We Can” attitude of Hanson associates, the vote of confidence from our Board of Directors, the optimism of our management team, and the patronage of our customers. . . these are the things of success. So thank you to all involved in this process and monumental building – it’s been a long time coming and we could not have possibly done it alone.

We hold no franchise on cold storage or refrigerated transportation. Members of the Hanson team earn the right to grow in the marketplace every day. Through courteous service, making the best decision, getting things done. That’s what gets it off the drawing board and into the ground.


Hanson Logistics provides end-to-end temperature-controlled distribution, transportation, warehousing and supply chain services, including multi-vendor consolidation services to the nation's major retailers. As one of the largest providers in the US, the company operates a growing refrigerated transportation fleet and 9 facilities in the central states, totaling 39 million cu. ft. with more than 200 Hanson teammates.
