This expansion will provide services such as LTL consolidation, asset-based transportation, warehousing and comprehensive logistics. The property will be capable of receiving an estimated 400,000 pallets and shipping over 42 million cases annually.
“Our focus is on providing logistics services that help CPG suppliers optimize their supply chains and master the middle mile in a time of unprecedented online shopping and direct-to-consumer distribution,” said Kevin Williamson, CEO. “Our new, state-of-the-art facility will operate 22 hours per day, six days a week to ensure that we continue delivering the highest levels of service to our customers. Importantly, this expansion also creates 250-275 new warehouse jobs during a critical time.” The new facility promotes supply chain sustainability with LED and motion-activated lighting, as well as battery-powered equipment. The warehouse also received its AIB certification with a high score of 980/1,000.
