MTC Logistics expands in Baltimore

   MTC Logistics, a subsidiary of Hoffberger Holdings, Inc., will expand its Port of Baltimore temperature-controlled distribution center located at the Chesapeake Commerce Center.
   “The strategic position immediately adjacent to the Seagirt Marine Terminal has allowed us to continue to expand our international service offerings,” said MTC Logistics’ president, F. Brooks Royster, III, in a statement. “With the expansion of the Panama Canal slated for 2015, we needed to be ready to support the expanding demands for refrigerated cargo in the Mid-Atlantic region.”
   After completion, the expanded facility will exceed 9 million cubic feet and offer about 32,000 racked pallet positions. Details about the cost of the expansion were not disclosed by the company. The expansion is expected to be finished by the end of the third quarter of 2014.
   “We have been operating temperature-controlled distribution centers in Baltimore for nearly a century, and we continue to invest in this community,” Royster said. “If all goes as planned, we will be operational in time to meet next year’s busy holiday season.”
   HHI is a diversified, privately held investment company of the Hoffberger family of Baltimore. With the expansion, MTC Logistics will operate three distribution centers with 20 million cubic feet of refrigerated and frozen space, serving the ports of Baltimore, Philadelphia, and Wilmington, Del.
