Morrison Express Launches Rickenbacker Service Offering
Morrison Express, a global logistics, transportation, and supply chain management provider, announced the launch of a new service at the cargo-only Rickenbacker International Airport (LCK) in Lockbourne, Ohio.
Located 10 miles from downtown Columbus, the LCK facility serves as a central hub for many of the biggest names in fashion, electronics, and retail.
“When it comes to freight, turnaround time is everything, and both our clients and airline partners rely on seamless and expedited processes,” said Tony Medeiros, Vice President and General Manager of the Americas for Morrison Express. “Rickenbacker is an optimal distribution location for many global brands, and our ability to service their needs was a driving factor in partnering with the CFS facility there. This 90,000 square-foot container freight station, combined with our customized solutions, delivers a competitive advantage for our clients’ importing and exporting needs.”
LCK’s strategic location allows for more timely and cost-effective distribution and is able to reach over 70 percent of the United States and Canadian population within two days via standard less-than-truckload (LTL) service. Morrison Express airline partners Cathay Pacific, Emirates, and Cargolux are now making multiple 100-ton flights per week directly in and out of Rickenbacker International Airport, bypassing traditional gateways such as New York and Chicago.
“We are achieving maximum efficiency and reducing turnaround time for landing, unloading, handling, and distribution,” said Chris Chespak, Morrison’s director of marketing. “By adding this CFS service offering at LCK to our global portfolio, we are pleased to offer our clients other competitive options into and out of the US market.”
Morrison Express has a network of more than 300 company and agent offices across five continents.
