Averitt Express has opened a new distribution and fulfillment center near Dallas, less than one mile from its service center in Grand Prairie. The new 400,000 square-foot facility can handle the flow and distribution of domestic and international freight and cargo as it is near the Dallas/Fort Worth International and Dallas Love Field airports and the BNSF Railway and Union Pacific Railroad intermodal depots.
“Our team is excited about expanding our presence and ability to serve a wider array of supply chain needs in one of the nation’s busiest freight hubs,” said Wayne Spain, Averitt’s president and chief operating officer. “Not only will this vast facility increase our service offerings in the region, but it will also create new jobs and help to better serve the state’s critical supply chain infrastructure.”
- The new facility is Averitt’s largest distribution and center to be opened to date, raising the company’s total warehousing space to over 2.5 million sq. ft of space across more than 40 locations.
- The company’s expansion in Houston follows the recent openings of new facilities in Atlanta, GA, Greensboro, NC, and in Houston and Laredo, TX.
