American Fast Freight – New Terminal Completed
The new terminal which houses the Northwest operations, sales, marketing, and customer service as well as accounting and administrative functions for American Fast Freight (AFF) was recently completed.
The eco friendly terminal is on 21 acres of land in Fife, which is about ten minutes outside the Port of Tacoma. In addition to American Fast Freight, the other AFF divisions; Hawaiian Ocean Transport, American Relocation Services and AFF Logistics also are located there. The building features state-of-the art electrical systems, which will dramatically reduce energy consumption as will the installation of energy efficient HVAC systems.
It has a white roof which dramatically reduces the “heat island” effect. The refrigerated sections will have dock shelters with strip doors to reduce cooler temperature loss. Operations are conducted using only electric forklifts. Over 95% of the steel used in the construction is recycled as are the majority of the flooring materials.
