Crowley Maritime Corp. and Customized Brokers, its Miami-based Customs brokerage company, announced the opening of a new cold-storage warehouse facility located in Miami.

The facility, known as Crowley Fresh, features multiple humidity- and temperature-controlled coolers. It is open around the clock to store and handle perishables imported from or exported to Latin America, South America, the Caribbean, Europe, Asia and the Far East.

The state-of-the-art facility is ideal for perishable storage or may be used as an in-transit consolidation or deconsolidation point, according to a company press release.

Crowley Fresh features high-tech cooling and monitoring equipment, including forced-air precooling, which can be adjusted to meet and maintain varying temperature requirements. With 400,000 total cubic feet of refrigerated space, the facility also offers additional storage space for cargo supplies and non-refrigerated materials.

"When you're shipping temperature-sensitive goods, every second counts," Nelly Yunta, vice president of sales, marketing and customer care for Crowley, said in the press release. "Shippers of perishables need a reliable and committed cold-chain logistics partner who has industry-leading specialized equipment and experience. We can offer this and more, including a diverse suite of additional logistics capabilities, such as Customs brokerage, air freight and trucking services. For South Florida perishable customers, Crowley is truly a one-stop-shop shipping and logistics provider."

Crowley Fresh is located at 11401 NW 100th Road, Medley, FL 33178.
