Did you know the world's most enormous freezer is in Horn Rapids?
I had no idea, but how cool! Preferred Freezer Services, acquired by Lineage Logistics (2019) is located at 2800 Polar Way, in Horn Rapids. The 116-foot-tall building is the most giant automated refrigerated warehouse on earth. The group has several warehouses in Washington, including the towns of Prosser, Othello, Seattle, Quincy, Pasco, and Kennewick. Lineage Logistics operates cold storage food warehouses all over the U.S., and worldwide.
What's inside the World's Largest Freezer?
Food, fruits, vegetables, meat, and premade meals are inside the warehouse. The items are shipped to restaurants and stores. Approximately 2 billion pounds of food pass through the structure every year. According to Wikipedia, the facility is capable of storing about 350 million pounds of frozen food. The HUGE 455,000 square foot warehouse sits on 40 acres at the Horn Rapids Industrial Park in Richland.
