Refrigerated warehousing and freight consolidation service provider Burris Logistics said today it has opened a public refrigerated warehouse (PRW) outside of Atlanta. The company says the new facility offers its clients a wider range of cold chain solutions.

The 250,000-square-foot warehouse opened its doors in January and is located in McDonough, Ga., about 30 miles outside of Atlanta, according to Milford, Del.-based Burris.

The facility will operate within the company's Burris PRW Plus business unit, which offers cold storage solutions through dedicated facilities along the I-95 corridor on the Eastern seaboard, the firm said.

The McDonough location expands the company's East Coast capabilities and provides additional capacity, particularly for clients producing frozen or refrigerated foodstuffs and for retailers seeking outsourced storage solutions, Burris said. "The big benefit of the McDonough location is that it enables our partners to reach 80 percent of the population of the United States within a two-day transit time," Michael Pitcher, director of sales for PRW Plus at Burris Logistics, said in a statement.

In addition to its cold storage space, the facility includes an attached office, space to hold 28,000 pallet positions, and employment for more than 75 people, Burris said when it first purchased the property in 2017.
