Yesterday, Baltimore-based MTC Logistics formally opened a large refrigerated cargo facility in Mobile. It is a $61 million project that will add 75 new jobs and has much future growth potential. MTC broke ground in 2019 on what is now one of the largest distribution centers of its kind in the Southeast, designed to provide shippers with seamless supply chain solutions focused on global commerce.
“The expansion to Mobile is helping MTC serve a valued long-term customer who needed a port location to service their Southeastern customers,” said Harry Halpert, chairman of MTC Logistics and CEO of Hoffberger Holdings Inc. “Mobile’s ‘find a yes’ attitude, which pervades local government and its business community, fits well with MTC’s service-oriented culture.”
Located between APM Terminals and Mobile Aeroplex at Brookley on property sold to MTC by the Alabama State Port Authority, the building has more than 12.6 million ft3 of refrigerated space capable of storing 40,000-plus pallets of frozen vegetables, meat and seafood.
