Crowley Opens Distribution Center in Jacksonville
Tuesday, November 14, 2006
Crowley Maritime Corporation’s logistics group has moved and expanded its Jacksonville distribution center to the Jacksonville International Tradeport business park, which is strategically located near the Jacksonville International Airport with close access to the Jacksonville Port Authority’s Talleyrand, Blount Island and Dames Point terminals. The address is 1420 Vantage Way, Unit 106; Jacksonville, Fla. 32218.
The relocation this month has increased the company’s Jacksonville warehouse capacity approximately 33 percent to more than 34, 000 square feet, and nearly doubled existing pallet positions to more than 1,500. The distribution center has 15 dock-high loading doors to allow for increased throughput.
Crowley has operated a distribution center in Jacksonville for more than five years, and has relocated and expanded three times to meet increased business requirements.
Distribution center services range from cross-docking of domestic trailer cargo into ocean containers, to storing and consolidating freight for domestic and international transportation.
