Wilmington port is positioning as Cold-Chain HubThe port of Wilmington is well suited to serve North Carolina’s robust agriculture export industry, but until recently it lacked nearby cold storage infrastructure. Until just a few months ago.
Now Wilmington has a new, 101,000 square foot refrigerated warehouse, opened within the port’s gates. Port of Wilmington Cold Storage has three-billion cubic feet, with a refrigerated loading and storage dock, a larger freezer section and a blast-freezer compartment. Furthermore it has the potential to triple its current capacity to over 300,000 square feet.
