The Minority Transportation Consortium is building a new cold storage facility in Mobile. This will create another 50 to 70 jobs and will further facilitate traffic through the state port in Mobile.
“More jobs coming to our area!,” said Congressman Bradley Byrne, R-Montrose. “MTC Logistics will build a $58 million cold storage facility between the APM Terminals and Mobile Aeroplex at Brookley near downtown Mobile on a piece of property owned by the State Port Authority. MTC expects to hire between 50-70 full-time workers to run the facility that will store imported frozen pork products and seafood coming to the U.S. for distribution.”
The Mobile Chamber of Commerce said in a statement: “Company officials announced the approximately 300,000 square-ft. facility will be five stories tall, and will contain almost 12 million cubic-feet of refrigerated space, and store approximately 40,000 pallets of product. All of the product will be transiting in on containers, and processed through APM Terminals before or after arriving at MTC Logistics.”
“Groundbreaking is expected in December, and the timeline for construction is 18 months.”
