A logistics company is opening a new facility in Berks County next month.
Saddle Creek Logistics Services said that it is expanding its existing warehousing and fulfillment operations in four markets to support the needs of new and prospective clients. The company recently opened distribution centers in Walton, Kentucky and Joliet, Illinois, and plans to open a facility in North Las Vegas, Nevada in early 2024.
“Ecommerce and omnichannel retail will continue to grow, as will demand for warehousing and distribution space – particularly in strategic locations that can help to reduce transit times and ensure cost-effective deliveries to a significant percentage of the U.S. population,” Duane Sizemore, Saddle Creek’s senior vice president, marketing and business development, said in a news release. “Based on our experience to date in Walton, Joliet, Myerstown, and North Las Vegas, we believe these markets are optimal for serving current and future clients.”
The company said each of the new facilities will be centrally located with easy access to major interstates; designed for ecommerce fulfillment with high ceilings and offer value-added services, returns management and parcel shipping programs; and will be technologically advanced.
Saddle Creek Logistics Services is based in Florida and provides order fulfillment, warehousing and transportation services. The company also has an 832,000-square-foot facility in Bethel Township, Berks County.
