Cold storage demand is growing throughout the US. The market has already hit historic heights in the last year, and it is poised for continued growth. Currently, facilities are running at maximum capacity, and companies are looking to expand into emerging markets, like Utah.

“This growth is due to growing demand for pharmaceutical goods in countries such as China, Brazil and India,” Wick Udy, SVP of JLL’s Salt Lake City office. “This has caused U.S. pharmaceutical companies to rely on refrigerated storage facilities to store their goods before they are exported. Utah plays a key part in the transfer of consumer goods and raw materials throughout the United States. Three major interstates—I-15, I -80, and I-70—connect in the state and access in all directions and are readily available. Movement of consumer goods and raw materials is able to reach the west coast in a one-day to two-day delivery time.”
