Why St. Louis
The St. Louis metropolitan region, which extends across the Mississippi River into Illinois, boasts a network of interstates, rail service, two international cargo airports, three regional airports, and an inland port, providing a wealth of intermodal shipping options. Coldco St. Louis sits in the heart of the area just 5 minutes from downtown St. Louis. With 105 million tons of cargo passing through the St. Louis region annually, the area is a major hub for regional, national, and international business.
With a growing demand for temperature-controlled products delivered faster than ever, Coldco’s St. Louis cold storage solutions can create a more responsive cold chain due to a central location and an abundance of local logistics resources. The combination of the local interstate system, rail access, airport availability, and the inland port presence, our St. Louis cold storage and temperature-controlled 3PL services are definitely a strong fit for any cold chain requirements.
Over-the-Road: An Ideal Interstate Framework
Four interstate highways connect the St. Louis area to locations North, South, East, and West. Items shipped by truck from the bi-state region reach 70 percent of the U.S. population within 48 hours. Three of the city’s four interstates reach the coastline. St. Louis has notably lower congestion than other US cities of similar size. In 2012, the St. Louis MSA (Metropolitan Statistical Area) had the lowest Travel Time Index of the largest US metro areas according to the Texas Transportation Institute.
These factors further illuminate why our St. Louis cold storage and temperature-controlled 3PL solutions are a must for cold chain responsiveness.
