The leader in cold storage throughout the Midwest.
At Interstate Cold Storage, we focus on creating a superior customer experience. That’s why we simplify processes to ensure smooth operations, provide a healthy work environment to retain experienced staff members, and run at optimal capacity instead of overfilling our facility. Our customer-first philosophy is what makes us the leader in cold storage services throughout the Midwest.

Cold Storage

We’re dedicated to providing cost-effective, reliable, and secure cold storage warehouses and distribution solutions. Our five modern temperature-controlled and fully racked facilities offer the latest refrigeration technologies.
