Maersk to build new storage facility in South Carolina

Performance Team – A Maersk Company has announced a new cold storage facility planned for Ridgeville, South Carolina to serve temperature-controlled goods.

Opening is scheduled for Q1 2023.

Maersk’s subsidiary said the new facility aims to offer a strong value proposition to customers through supply chain simplification benefits, cold storage solutions, refrigerated inland trucking, blast/quick freezing, USDA meat inspections, boxing/repacking, and other value-added services.

As the US Southeast, where Charleston is located, is the country’s fastest growing region in population, the area would provide optimal capacity for shippers.

The new site is set to reach 80 million consumers within one day and 225 million consumers within two days.

The facility “will comply with the company’s cold storage building sustainability standards,” reads Maersk’s statement.

“It will be certified LEED Gold and have rooftop solar, a CO2 cascade refrigeration system, LEDs and smart lighting, low-flow water devices, rainwater recapture, electric car charging, and use a virtual power purchase agreement for clean power to offset any grid power consumption.”

Maersk witnessed record results in Q2 2022, with revenue increasing by 52 per cent as results were still driven by exceptional market conditions.

Earnings more than doubled compared to same quarter last year, according to the Danish firm.
