Logistics service provider National Retail Systems, Inc. has announced a plan to develop a freight distribution facility in the New York area in Jersey City, NJ following the acquisition of 100 acres of land in the location.
"The world's largest, most affluent consumer market is right here in the U.S. Northeast. This is where retailers need efficient logistics services and where NRS will continue to deliver for our customers," said Raymond Wisniewski, president & COO of NRS. "We will develop our 200 acres here into one of the most advanced distribution operations in the world and work with the industry to make sure the Port of New York and New Jersey maintains the transportation infrastructure needed for future growth."
On the site, NRS will build two 100,000-sq.-foot container transload facilities with the capacity to hold up to 3,000 containers or trailers. They are also developing an intermodal rail yard with direct access to main rail lines adjacent to the property.
