Americold Logistics Inc Closes Carmar Acquisition.
Carmar's network adds 60 million cubic feet of refrigerated space in six facilities, with plans for the addition of another distribution center in the mid-Atlantic states. Dan McNamara, CEO of AmeriCold Logistics, Inc., stated, 'The completed acquisition of The Carmar Group along with the addition of Freezer Services, which closed in May, is further evidence of our objective to provide our customers the broadest network for storing and distributing temperature-controlled products in the United States.'
AmeriCold Logistics, Inc., headquartered in Atlanta, GA, currently has 100 facilities totaling 480 million cubic feet of storage capacity nationally. In 1997, the company handled over 44 billion pounds of temperature-controlled products and managed transportation programs which controlled over 7 billion pounds of freight. AmeriCold Logistics is also the largest consolidator of less-than-truckload temperature-controlled products in North America.
