MTC Logistics plans to build a 300,000 ft2 cold storage facility on property owned by the Alabama State Port Authority in Mobile, Ala. The $58 million investment is expected to create between 50 and 70 jobs.

The company said the facility will contain almost 12 million ft3 of refrigerated space, which will allow it to store 40,000 pallets of product, and will be able to blast-freeze poultry products imported from across the Southeast. MTC Logistics predicts an 18-month construction project and expects the facility to open in the second quarter of 2020.
