G&D, a specialized provider of transportation and logistics services, will now provide warehousing services to the Southeast region of the United States.
The expansion aims to pave the way for opening new warehouses in Charleston, South Carolina and Greer, South Carolina. The Port of Charleston is the ninth largest in the country, doubling container volumes over the last decade.
South Carolina Ports Authority operates oceanside terminals in Charleston and extended its reach inland in 2013 with the opening of Inland Port Greer, an innovative facility which provides overnight rail service to the Port.
G&D Integrated plans to provide key warehousing services that include storage, distribution and transloading in addition to automotive assembly services. The goal of the expansion in this specific region is to service the growing need for warehousing to a variety of industries including automotive, consumer goods and manufacturing.
"Expanding our logistics services to align with our current transportation capabilities in the Southeast has been a strategic goal for G&D for some time," says Curt Fisher, vice president of client relations and marketing at G&D. "As we've developed relationships with South Carolina Ports Authority and other customers in the area, we feel the time to move forward is now. We will continue to build what our namesake suggests; fully integrated supply chain and logistics services that include transportation, warehousing, and manufacturing capabilities."
