Performance Team – A Maersk Company plans to open a cold-storage facility in Dayton, N.J., in October 2022 to serve imports and exports. Commodities will include fish, poultry, beef, pork, fruits and vegetables.

The 167,812 ft2 facility includes 13,000 rack positions, 30 dock doors, a dry sprinkler system, refrigerated dock, trailer plug-ins, in-house clearance, refrigerated and frozen storage, 24-hour monitoring and a backup generator. USDA import/export services, repack, re-boxing, labeling and co-packing are also available.

Site selection was based on close proximity to Maersk’s container port at Elizabeth, N.J., as well as the one-hour drive from the port of Philadelphia.
