LOS ANGELES, March 12, 2019 /PR Newswire/ — Port Logistics Group, the nation’s leading provider of omnichannel logistics services, today announced it has expanded its scope of services for its long-time customer, a leading school uniform and apparel supplier. The new multi-year contract commenced in January 2019 and also marks Port Logistics Group’s expansion into the Port of Jacksonville, Fla. (JAXPORT).

Port Logistics Group has provided fulfillment services for its apparel customer since 2006, and the addition of Jacksonville operations is significant in scope for the breadth and depth of services. “We are providing a dedicated facility solution for our valued, largest U.S. customer while pursuing the opportunity to establish a foothold in another major U.S. port location,” said Greg Morello, President and Chief Commercial Officer of Port Logistics Group.
