Chilled & Frozen Warehousing

Since 1946, Bellingham Cold Storage has provided frozen cold storage and freezing to many food companies and industries. BCS also handles and stores refrigerated products. On our three campuses — perfectly positioned between Seattle and Vancouver, Canada — we manage 19 warehouses, storing hundreds of millions of pounds of refrigerated and frozen products from small local producers and multinational food manufacturers. BCS offers a wide range of temperatures, including refrigerated storage at 33 F to 38 F and a frozen warehouse at -20 F. All our warehouses are fully managed, monitored by a Logix refrigeration control system and a team of engineers providing 24/7 coverage. Our customers’ inventory is under the control of our proprietary WebOPTICS warehouse management system. BCS also supports the cooling and freezing needs or our on-site tenants by connecting their freezing and cooling equipment to our ammonia engine rooms.
