Tuesday, April 01, 2014

Today Dupuy Storage and Forwarding, LLC opens its newest coffee warehouse and handling facility in North Charleston to serve the rising levels of imported coffee beans through the SC Ports Authority.

Coffee volumes at the Port of Charleston are up 60 percent over the last two years, due largely to demand by U.S. coffee roasters and consumption by the Southeast's growing population.

"Coffee is a highly specialized type of cargo, and SC Ports welcomes Dupuy's newest coffee warehouse to Charleston," said SCPA president and CEO Jim Newsome. "Their opening is a significant addition to our local coffee storage capacity, enabling our Port to continue growing coffee import volumes through Charleston."

Both Arabica and Robusta beans are imported through the SCPA from coffee growers primarily in Latin America and Africa. Beans imported in Charleston are distributed throughout the Southeast and Gulf Coast.

"We are very excited to be in the dynamic and growing Port of Charleston and hope we can contribute to the area's growth and prosperity by expanding our business there," said Allan Colley, President of Dupuy Storage and Forwarding. "Establishing a location in the Charleston area will allow Dupuy to serve a growing number of traditional coffee customers in the Southeast." 

The 100,000-square-foot Dupuy Storage Charleston warehouse is located on Palmetto Commerce Parkway in North Charleston.
