Hanson Logistics, a provider of third-party temperature-controlled supply chain services, announced Monday, July 2, that the company has signed a multiyear agreement with Dole Packaged Foods to lease the Hanson facility in Decatur, Mich.

Located south of Interstate 94 in a prime agricultural area, the Decatur facility has a capacity of 1.4 million cubic feet that includes food-processing space. The frozen and refrigerated facility can accommodate 7,500 pallet positions configured for bulk and processed fruit and vegetables.

Decatur is one of eight Hanson temperature-controlled facilities in a network designed to support agricultural production and storage of food products, as well as high-velocity finished-goods distribution for CPG companies.

Hanson Logistics, based in St. Joseph, Mich., currently is constructing a 14.5 million-cubic-foot Chicago consolidation center scheduled for first-phase completion on Sept. 15.
