East Coast Warehouse expands in New Jersey

East Coast Warehouse & Distribution is expanding its New Jersey presence with a newly leased warehouse south of the Port of New York/New Jersey.

The new temperature-controlled 388,000-sq.-ft. building in Dayton, New Jersey, allows East Coast to better serve Northeast customers, while also providing an “off-port” solution in Central New Jersey, the company reported.

“The Central New Jersey area continues to grow and attract commerce with a high level of support from state and local government,” East Coast CEO Jamie Overley said in a news release. “Our investment in this facility in close proximity to the Port of New York/New Jersey is a testament to our long-term commitment to the region and will allow us to continue to provide seamless distribution through the Northeast.”

East Coast will offer temperature-controlled warehousing, container drayage, local and regional trucking services, and national freight brokerage services. The company planned to open in October and hire 75 people within its first year of operation.

The company has experienced “significant” growth over the last several years, from its expansion into the Port of Savannah and acquisition of Temp-Distribution of Maryland in 2021, to the opening of its second facility near the Port of Baltimore in the Tradepoint Atlantic Logistics Center at Sparrows Point in 2022, to its acquisition of Allied Brothers Intermodal in January 2023.

Earlier this year, the company announced a partnership with BlueCargo to optimize container workflow from port to warehouse, helping to alleviate additional costs and fees resulting from ongoing port congestion.
