Exel Logistics completes Coors satellite warehouse.

Exel Logistics North America recently opened a 90,000-sq. ft. dedicated distribution center for the Coors Brewing Co. of Golden, CO. It is Coors' largest satellite warehouse in the U.S.

The distribution center is a warehouse retrofitted with refrigeration systems that keep Coors products at 35 degrees Fahrenheit.

According to a spokesperson for Exel, 336 million pounds of Coors products will move through the center annually.

The facility handles 10 to 15 in-bound trains each day and 30 to 40 out-bound trucks, which make deliveries throughout central Texas.

Exel also operates Coors distribution centers in Albuquerque, NM and Houston, TX.

"Exel Logistics has met all our needs in Albuquerque and Houston," said Pete Jacobsen, regional distribution manager for Coors. "The new distribution center will improve deliveries andn customer service in our Central Texas market."
