Unicold opens Oakland facility

The Unicold Corp. has opened a new 20,000 square-foot, temperature-controlled transload facility at the Port of Oakland.

The new distribution facility replaces the Honolulu-based company's former facility at the port and will handle the consolidation of food products moving through Oakland to Hawaii and Guam.

The new facility is on the port's overweight route that can support up to 95,000 gross pounds. It has 30 truck bays on one side and rail siding that can hold up to 12 boxcars served by both the Union Pacific and Burlington Northern Santa Fe on the other.

Unicold expanded its operations to Oakland in 1978 and has been at the Port of Oakland for 12 years.
