Maersk’s Performance Team continues to integrate end-to-end cold chains with the announcement of a new cold storage facility in Houston designed to serve imports and exports. Performance Team will offer ideal access to the city’s major ports with a dedicated fleet of shuttle trucks and chassis used between the warehouse and the port to expedite inland transit. Equally important, easy access to both BNSF and Union Pacific rail lines and five minutes from major highways ensures multi-modal supply chain options to and from inland destinations.End-to-end supply chain solutions are created by Maersk’s Ocean services calling the Port of Houston that can be integrated with Maersk Customs Services, USA Inc. customs clearance expertise and Performance Team – A Maersk Company’s 60+ warehouses and Transportation services - designed to serve storage, fulfillment, distribution and inland transportation needs.Transpacific, Transatlantic, South America, Central America, Africa and Middle East markets are all served by Maersk, Sealand and Hamburg Sud ocean carrier services and Maersk companies serving the Port of Houston. Commodities include fish, poultry, beef, pork, fruits and vegetables.The Houston facility will open in August 2022 and be operated by Performance Team - A Maersk Company. The facility used customer input to design a 90’ loading dock that is temperature-controlled and protected from the elements - important functionality for handling frozen and fresh commodities. Having such a deep facility dock enables Performance Team to stage a much greater number of loads in preparation for domestic or international distribution. The company also worked closely with the USDA on the design to ease the demands placed on USDA inspectors who are facing increased cargo volumes.
