Hanson Logistics recently named Jeffery Frazier as vice president and general manager of the company’s new 14.5 million-cubic-foot Chicago consolidation center. Frazier will oversee the day-to-day operations, including client migration to the new facility and the rollout of Hanson’s Velocities Multi-Vendor Consolidation program.

Frazier joined Hanson Logistics in 2003 as vice president and general manager of the company’s 7.2 million-cubic-foot facility in Logansport, Ind.; under his direction, Logansport has become a key facility for Tyson Foods, offering blast freezing and export services to more than 20 countries around the world. Frazier has been active in the planning and construction of the Chicago consolidation center; Phase 1 is scheduled for completion in mid-September, with plans for two additional phases in the near future.

“Jeff’s excellent performance as manager of our Logansport facility has prepared him well for this important position,” says Gregory Hanson, president of St. Joseph, Mo.-based Hanson Logistics. “Jeff has made a great contribution to our operations and to the efficiency of our customers’ supply chains, earning high praise from customers and Hanson Logistics teammates. We’re confident that our customers will find his expertise and ‘Yes, we can!’ attitude an important asset as they leverage the advantages of our new Chicago facility.”

Frazier was employed by AmeriCold Logistics for 14 years prior to joining Hanson Logistics. Brian Roberts, operations manager at the Logansport facility since 2003, has been promoted to replace Frazier as vice president and general manager of that facility.
