Cold-Link Logistics Plans Jones County, Mississippi, Warehousing-Logistics Complex

Third-party logistics company Cold-Link Logistics plans to establish operations at the I-59 South Industrial Site in Jones County, Mississippi. The $64 million project is expected to create 84 jobs.

The new 200,000-square-foot cold storage warehouse and transportation hub will be located on a 65-acre site near Ellisville. Construction is scheduled to begin this year.

“We are very excited to bring a first-class cold storage facility to the great State of Mississippi. We recognized a great opportunity to support several current and new customers throughout the state and Southeast. We consistently heard from the area’s producers that they needed a facility to help support their growth, and we were thrilled with the opportunity to serve the community. Partnering with Whitestone Transportation is such a blessing, and we envision this further supporting the area’s producers. This facility will provide a link for our customers to save money and reach their customers in a more efficient manner,” Cold-Link Logistics President and Founder Michael Mandich said.

The Mississippi Development Authority (MDA) is providing assistance for infrastructure needs. The city of Ellisville and Jones County also will assist with the project.

“MDA applauds Cold-Link Logistics for deciding to locate its warehousing operations in Mississippi and for creating 84 new job opportunities for the area’s workforce. Projects like this are vital to the economic well-being of our local communities and the state as a whole. We thank everyone who had a role in bringing Cold-Link Logistics and its partnership with Whitestone Transportation to our state,” MDA Deputy Executive Director Laura Hipp noted.

Cold-Link Logistics is a full service, third party logistics company that designs specific solutions to meet the ever-increasing demand on cold chain innovation and efficiencies. The company is partnering with Mississippi-based Whitestone Transportation of Moselle to provide integrated warehousing and transportation services to local and regional food processors and distributors.

“Our office has focused on aggressive site development in the last few years. Having a shovel-ready site was our biggest advantage in closing this deal with Cold-Link Logistics and Whitestone Transportation. These companies practice efficiency and excellence in all areas. I am excited to continue to work with them and follow the success of this project,” Economic Development Authority of Jones County President Ross Tucker added.
