  • Savannah has taken on importance as a gateway, with congestion in other ports and the widening of the Panama Canal.

Port Logistics Group announced last week that the company has opened operations in Savannah, Georgia, with two new distribution customers.

The new operation is located just six miles from the port of Savannah in a 685,000 square foot facility. The company will perform detailed pick/pack and value-added services for its new customers, including kitting, price ticketing and labeling for a high-end retail bedding and home goods customer, and light manufacturing and kitting for a furniture company serving mass market retailers across the U.S.

Port Logistics Group now offers complete logistics solutions at the four major U.S. import gateways. With the addition of Savannah, Port Logistics Group operates more than 5.5 million square feet of warehouse space in and around key U.S. ports, including New York/New Jersey, Los Angeles/Long Beach, and Seattle/Tacoma.

“This expansion completes one of our key strategic goals, creating a national logistics provider that can serve customers in any of the major North American import gateways,” said Greg Morello, the company’s chief marketing and strategy officer. “Our customers can now quickly adjust their supply chains to reduce costs and increase speed to market, and be confident that they’ll receive consistent service, regardless of the port of entry.”

Port Logistics Group brings significant retail, apparel, and general merchandise expertise to Savannah, a gateway location that has taken on increased prominence for retail as market factors, such as congestion in other major ports and the widening of the Panama Canal, make Savannah an increasingly important part of a balanced import strategy.

“We are very pleased to be able to offer our clients the flexibility of working with a trusted partner in multiple port locations,” said Bob Stull, Chief Executive Officer of Port Logistics Group.
