Industry connections and a new facility make for the perfect alliance for Border Cold Storage and Frontera Fresh Logistics.
Frontera Fresh Logistics LLC is the transportation and logistics arm of Edinburg, Texas-based Frontera Produce LLC launched a year ago.
Border Cold Storage LLC, Pharr, Texas, also opened its doors in 2008 and boasts a 50,000-square-foot facility that specializes in the cooling, storage and repacking of fresh produce.
Border Cold Storage is a single solution for the produce industry, said Tyler Morgan, president.
“If you need storage, we can do it — if you need storage, re-runs, packing and delivery, we can do that, too,” he said.
The building has a 180 truckload capacity and 11 different cold rooms and sits on 16 acres.
Border Cold Storage has the ability to regrade, pack clamshells, and bag limes, lemons, avocados and peppers, among other items, in poly or net.
“We look at every item, piece by piece, to be certain of quality,” Morgan said.
Frontera Fresh Logistics was launched last year to provide truckload and less-than-truckload service throughout the U.S. as well as cold storage and forward distribution.
