Saddle Creek Logistics Services plans to open a new distribution center in Fort Worth, Texas to support the significant growth in the warehousing industry. The shared-space facility is set to open by the end of this year and is said to be located near a major parcel hub. This distribution center brings Saddle Creek's warehouse footprint to 31 million square feet throughout the United States.
Per Saddle Creek:
- The newly constructed building has 40-foot ceilings and 120 dock doors. The space can be built out to suit specific client needs.
- The Fort Worth facility is Saddle Creek’s fifth location in North Texas and 54th DC nationwide. Earlier this year, the company added new shared-space facilities in Walton, Ky., and Myerstown, Pa., and dedicated facilities in Birmingham, Ala., Kansas City, Mo., and Houston, Texas.
“We’re seeing incredible demand for centrally located distribution facilities that are equipped to accommodate growing order volume,” said Bobby Hays, regional vice president of operations at Saddle Creek. “Fort Worth is a prime location for expansion because it is one of the fastest-growing cities in the country and a thriving business hub with a diverse labor force. It is also conveniently situated for efficient, cost-effective transportation. Many U.S. markets can be reached in two days or less via ground service.”
