Saddle Creek Logistics Services Relocates To Expanded Distribution Center In Joliet, Illinois
"This new DC will accommodate organic growth with our current customers and also allow us to serve new customers in Chicagoland," said Rob Pericht, Senior Vice President of Warehouse Operations at Saddle Creek. "We look forward to providing flexible logistics solutions that meet their needs efficiently and cost-effectively."
CenterPoint Intermodal Center is the nation's largest inland port and a designated Foreign Trade Zone. The 1.1 million-square-foot facility will have 132 dock doors and a secured yard. Currently under construction, the space can be built to suit specific customer needs. Adjacent to Union Pacific and BNSF rail yards with easy access to I-55 and I-80, the facility can accommodate two-day service to many major markets.
This larger Distribution Center replaces Saddle Creek's existing 590,000-square-foot DC in the Chicago area. It is one of 37 facilities in the company's nationwide network. Each integrated logistics facility offers a variety of warehousing, transportation, packaging and fulfillment services.
