  • RK's new advanced logistics facility was designed to the Bay Area’s high-tech and automotive industries.
  • Fremont, Cal., enjoys a strong manufacturing and supply chain environment.
  • RK's Fremont facility has Foreign Trade Zone designation.

RK Logistics Group, a third-party logistics (3PL) provider and innovator in full-spectrum supply chain support services, announced today a major expansion of operations, with the opening of a new 50,000-square-foot distribution center in Fremont, California.

The new warehouse, which will provide specialized inventory management, fulfillment and expedited plant delivery services for Silicon Valley companies, increases RK’s network to 14 supply chain operations in the greater San Francisco Bay Area, representing over 800,000 square feet of logistics and distribution capacity.

“This is a major investment for our company and we’re excited to be able to create nearly two dozen new jobs for the community,” said Rod Kalune, chairman and CEO of RK Logistics Group. “This advanced logistics facility has been purpose-designed to serve the strict quality and delivery requirements of the Bay Area’s high-tech and automotive manufacturing industries, as well as medical device, high-value engineered building products and just-in-time retail replenishment.”

Fremont Mayor Lily Mei said the continued growth of RK Logistics in Fremont is a reflection of the city’s strong manufacturing and supply chain environment. “From its Foreign Trade Zone facility, to its 3PL certification for pharmaceutical and medical device handling, RK Logistics is an important industry partner for all of Fremont’s key sectors, and we’re pleased to support their expansion.”

Services at the new facility include: secured warehousing and inventory management for parts, components and finished goods; inventory optimization, order picking and fulfillment; and light manufacturing such as pre-assembly and kitting. The site will also support RK’s specialized transportation programs for sequencing parts into Lean production lines at automotive and technology equipment factories, as well as just-in-time (JIT) deliveries to construction sites.

Kalune said that while the company already has some clients signed up for the new facility, they have capacity for new customers as well. In addition, the facility is hiring for positions, including warehouse associates, supervisors and material handling equipment operators.
