New Location: San Diego

TransCold San Diego Warehouse Location

Today we announce another new location for TransCold Distribution®!

Construction on a new 9000ft² freezer with dry storage space and professional office space is expected to be complete in late Spring 2021. At that point, our National City team will transition to the new location in Poway, henceforth known as TransCold San Diego.

We moved into our current National City location in 2015. Thanks to their hard work, NC has seen soaring growth ever since and is on track to be our largest producing US location. We are quickly outpacing the capacity of that location, so have taken action to better serve our customers.

This is TransCold’s 3rd currently active construction project. Recent years have been a tremendous period of growth and we appreciate the customers and team that help us continue to reach higher. 

Congratulations, National City team!
