Cold & Dry Storage Warehousing

In Partnership with Zero Mountain™ Logistics

Fort Smith, Arkansas Facility

Zero Mountain™ began an expansion program that would sustain its position as an industry leader.


A new above ground facility was built in Fort Smith in the late 1980s that incorporated design efficiencies that were unavailable in underground facilities both in terms of quality control and in the ability to track and move food into and out of the facility.


That facility now offers 5,145,000 cubic feet of fully convertible space for frozen and controlled temperature foods in which temperature can be set to range from -10° to +45° F.


In addition, the Fort Smith facility offers blast freezing for up to 320,000 pounds every 48 hours. Two more above ground facilities have been added to the Zero Mountain™ line up.
