  • SEKO CEO: LALB “is still the number-one port in the U.S. and is located in one of the key markets in the world.”
  • Demand for SEKO’s services for solar, high-tech, aerospace, and medical customers in California is at an all-time high.
  • SEKO Logistics’ operations include five facilities in Southern California and three in Northern California.

SEKO Logistics has tripled its warehouse operations footprint in California with the opening of an Omni-Channel Logistics hub in Chino and expansion into a new 200,000 square-foot facility in San Francisco.

Rapid growth for customers in the retail, solar, high-tech, aerospace and medical industries has prompted the investment, alongside the continued global expansion of SEKO’s omnichannel logistics strategy.

“Despite the much-publicized labor issues at the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach, it is still the number-one port in the United States and located in one of the key markets in the world,” said William J. Wascher, Chief Executive Officer of SEKO Logistics. “Our customers are experiencing significant growth in California and that’s why we are supporting them with this series of investments to ensure we have the capacity to facilitate their expansion.”

SEKO Logistics supports air export consolidations for retailers and e-tailers to the Asia Pacific region from Los Angeles. “Demand for our warehousing, logistics, and distribution services for the solar, high-tech, aerospace, and medical industries out of our California locations is at an all-time high,” said Wascher.

In San Francisco, the new 200,000 square-foot logistics warehouse in Union City takes SEKO’s total capacity in the city to nearly 350,000 square feet. In Los Angeles, the company’s Airfreight Gateway and local warehouse operation has relocated into a new and larger cross-dock and forwarding location. The 82,000 square foot state-of-the-art unit is over 30 percent bigger than SEKO’s former facility at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) and is close to the port and airport for international air and ocean export and de-consolidation services. SEKO’s home delivery services are also supported by the LAX operation.

The new Omni-Channel Logistics Hub in Chino is a fully-equipped 117,000 square-foot facility. SEKO has also opened a new 24,000 square-foot warehouse in Riverside to support fast-growing retail customers in the region. The Riverside location also serves the company’s Home Delivery customers and provides warehousing for retailers and consumer brands.

In addition, SEKO operates a dedicated MedTec hub in Costa Mesa and serves customers out of San Diego, taking its total operations in the state to five facilities in Southern California and three in Northern California.
