Expansion completes “four corner” strategy and provides customer access to fast growing gateway
July 22, 2015
SAVANNAH, July 22, 2015 /PR Newswire/ — Port Logistics Group, the nation’s leading provider of gateway logistics services, today announced that the company has opened operations in Savannah, GA with two new distribution customers.
Port Logistics Group now offers complete logistics solutions at the four major U.S. import gateways. With the addition of Savannah, Port Logistics Group operates more than 5.5 million square feet of warehouse space in and around key U.S. ports, including New York / New Jersey, LA / Long Beach, and Seattle / Tacoma.
The new operation is located just 6 miles from the port of Savannah in a 685,000 sq. ft. facility. The company will perform detailed pick/pack and value-added services for its new customers, including kitting, price ticketing and labeling for a high-end retail bedding and home goods customer, and light manufacturing and kitting for a furniture company serving mass market retailers across the U.S.
“This expansion completes one of our key strategic goals – creating a national logistics provider that can serve customers in any of the major North American import gateways,” said Greg Morello, Chief Marketing and Strategy Officer for Port Logistics Group. “Our customers can now quickly adjust their supply chains to reduce costs and increase speed to market, and be confident that they’ll receive consistent service, regardless of the port of entry.”
Port Logistics Group brings significant retail, apparel, and general merchandise expertise to a gateway location that has taken on increased prominence for retail as market factors, such as congestion in other major ports and the widening of the Panama Canal, make Savannah an increasingly important part of a balanced import strategy.
“We are very pleased to be able to offer our clients the flexibility of working with a trusted partner in multiple port locations,” said Bob Stull, Chief Executive Officer of Port Logistics Group.
