Des Plaines, Illinois-based CJ Logistics will open a new cold storage warehouse in Kansas that is projected to open in 2025.

CJ Logistics America will open a new 291,000-square-foot cold storage warehouse in New Century, Kansas, according to a release. The development is a joint venture with Yukon Real Estate Partners. CJ Logistics is targeting a Q3 2025 opening.

The facility will be attached to Upfield’s New Century production plant which produces products from brands such as Country Crock, I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter and Imperial. The release also notes there is 100,000 square feet of available space for future tenants.

“The opening of this new facility continues the momentum from our announcement earlier this year of our new cold storage warehouse in Gainesville, Georgia,” CJ Logistics America CEO Kevin Coleman said in the release. “We see the frozen and refrigerated food market increasing significantly in the coming years. Both of these new buildings expand our capabilities and reach, positioning CJ Logistics as a top supply chain and logistics partner. We are so excited for this long-term partnership with a leading brand like Upfield, and we thank Yukon Real Estate and BGO for their support throughout this process.”

The New Century cold storage facility is four miles from Interstate 35 and 11 miles from the BNSF Railway facility in Edgerton.

CJ Logistics operates logistics businesses at 280 bases in 40 countries.
