WHAT HAVE THE BRANCHES BEEN UP TO?
The Cool Port Oakland project is a 375,000 sq. ft. cold storage facility sitting on 22 acres at the Port of Oakland.
The facility has two docks each being 753’ long with 45 truck doors as well as 9 rail doors. The working temperature of the docks will be 35 degrees. The main freezer is 110,000 sq. ft. alone and has a working temperature of -10 degrees. As we understand, the primary function is to receive fresh product, deep freeze it, then place into shipping containers and it send out to other countries.
This project broke ground in June of 2017 and is scheduled to be finished by the end of August 2018.
Nathan Parker is the general foreman at Cool Port Oakland with an amazing team of three foremen, thirteen journeymen, and seven apprentices.
Keep up the great work TEAM!
