Frozen Food Express Industries Inc has announced the opening of a new service center in Burlington NJ in an effort to expand service and increase capacity in the intra-Northeast temperature-controlled, less-than-truckload market. The 80,000-square-foot warehousing and distribution center will provide substantial freezer, cooler, and dry storage space.

“This is an exciting opportunity for us to better meet the needs of our customers. This regionalized operation will offer existing customers in the Northeast the consistent, high-quality, and specialized service they have come to expect, and provide new customers with the superior service only an asset-based company can provide,” said John Hickerson, senior vice-president and chief marketing officer of FFE.

Service schedules are in place for New Jersey, Pennsylvania, New York, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine. For scheduling information, rates, and other specifics, visit www.ffex.net.
