East Coast Warehouse expands in Georgia

Feb. 5, 2024
Temperature-controlled logistics provider leases additional 500,000-sq.-ft. facility near the Port of Savannah to serve food and beverage industry customers in the region.

East Coast Warehouse & Distribution is expanding its footprint in the Savannah, Georgia, area with the lease of an additional 500,000-sq.-ft. warehouse adjacent to its existing facility in the Morgan Lakes Industrial Park.

The latest expansion gives the temperature-controlled logistics provider 1 million sq. ft. of warehouse space to serve food and beverage industry customers in the Savannah market—and more than 3 million sq. ft. of East Coast warehousing, the company reported.

“The Port of Savannah continues to grow and attract commerce with a high level of support from the Port, and local and state government,” East Coast Warehouse CEO Jamie Overley said in a news release. “Our expansion in the greater Savannah area allows us to continue to execute our vision and commitment to our customers of providing an end-to-end national temperature-controlled third-party logistics solution with regional expertise.”

In Savannah, East Coast Warehouse plans to leverage its port-based expertise to offer temperature-controlled warehousing, container drayage, local and regional trucking, and national freight brokerage services. The company said it also expects to hire an additional 50 people over the next year to support its continued growth.

In addition to Savannah, East Coast Warehouse boasts strategic locations on the Ports of New York/New Jersey, where the company is headquartered, and in Philadelphia and Baltimore.
