LaserShip has opened its newest facility in Durham, North Carolina, at 3500 Tricenter Boulevard. The 40,000 sq. ft. facility is LaserShip’s first in North Carolina’s Triangle area and can process up to 14,000 packages per hour. LaserShip already employs 15 full-time employees with plans to hire up to 22 to help meet local delivery demand while creating economic growth in the region.
The new facility is part of LaserShip’s delivery expansion to nearly 400 new zip codes across the eastern United States, including those in Triangle area, Greensboro, and up to the Virginia border reaching nearly 2 million new consumers in North Carolina. LaserShip also operates an 87,000 square foot sort center and delivery hub located in Charlotte.
“We’re very proud to open our new branch in Durham and further our investment and commitment in North Carolina,” said Josh Dinneen, Senior Vice President of Commercial Development at LaserShip. “Our Durham branch will help us meet unprecedented levels of e-commerce demand and better serve our customers with faster, more affordable, and reliable delivery. We also look forward to welcoming more employees to the LaserShip team and growing our involvement with the local community.”
LaserShip plans to hire additional full-time employees in the next few months to prepare for the upcoming holiday season. Available jobs include Freight Coordinators, Supervisors, Dispatchers, and Sort Managers.
“We’re glad to see LaserShip expand in our region and Durham in particular,” said Geoff Durham, President and CEO of the Durham Chamber of Commerce. “Their expansion in Durham means additional job opportunities for our community and a boost to our local economy especially during this time.”
The Raleigh-Durham expansion enables consumers to take advantage of the benefits of LaserShip’s proprietary delivery platform, including the recently launched Visual Proof of Delivery (vPOD) service that improves visibility and transparency consumers expect by providing a photo confirmation with virtual time stamp when package deliveries have been made.
