Crowley Doubles Warehouse Space in Jacksonville

Wednesday, March 10, 2010

Crowley has moved to a new 70,000 sq ft warehouse at Jaxport's Dames Point location, minutes from the company's headquarters. With this move, the company has doubled its north Florida warehouse space.  This new location at 3700 Port Jacksonville Parkway has 20 dock doors, 30-ft clear-height ceilings, and a 160-ft truck court that can be expanded to 200 ft.

The U.S. Customs bonded warehouse is very close to the city's new TraPac container terminal and will allow Crowley to provide warehousing and distribution services to those shippers involved in the Asia trade. As the Panama Canal is expanded, volumes of freight coming to Jacksonville from Asia could potentially increase volumes to the warehouse and allow the logistics group to increase its breadth of service offerings.

To date, the company owns and or manages over 900,000 sq ft of warehouse space in locations ranging from Miami and Los Angeles to Guatemala and Honduras. Additionally, Crowley's logistics group designs logistics processes and solutions that improve the efficiency and effectiveness of a client's supply chain.  This ability to engineer world-class warehousing, transportation and complete supply chain solutions is a competitive differentiator within the industry.
