A New $61M Facility for the Port of Mobile
On October 20th, MTC Logistics officially opened their newest facility, located in Alabama’s Port of Mobile. Crews first broke ground on the sprawling refrigerated cargo facility in 2019. Now, 2 years and $61 million later, MTC Logistics’ Mobile facility is ready to begin operation.
Inside the facility, you’ll find 12.6 million cubic feet of refrigerated space. That means the logistic company can store upwards of 40,000 pallets of refrigerated materials, such as frozen vegetables, meat, seafood and more. And, since the facility less than half a mile from I-10 and less than 3 miles from I-65, it’s in prime location to take advantage of the Port of Mobile.
Now that the facility is operational, MTC Logistics is looking to add 75 new jobs to the area. In addition, the facility has growth potential in the future.
