RLS Logistics recently opened a new food-grade ambient storage facility in Vineland NJ.
Located adjacent to its current Vineland cold storage facility, RLS said the new warehouse will offer an additional 36,000 square feet of storage space to its customers.
“Due to the rapid growth of our direct to consumer fulfillment business, we had ambient product and packaging material taking up valuable real estate in our temperature-controlled facility,” said Ken Johnson, executive vice president for the RLS warehousing group. “This new facility allows us to increase cold storage capacity by relocating that material in a non-temperature-controlled environment.
“Additionally, this allows us to focus on expanding our fulfillment lines. We have seen the demand from our customers to offer ambient storage, which creates momentum behind the opening of this facility as an additional logistics solution for them.”
The company said the new warehouse brings its total warehousing space to 611,000 square feet nationwide, creating a “value-added opportunity” for current and new customers.
“The opening of the new facility is just the beginning,” said Tony Leo, RLS president and CEO for the warehousing group. “We will be doubling our fulfillment output capabilities, and we have a future expansion plan that includes an additional 30,000 square foot warehouse.
“We are constantly focusing on providing new value-added services, and this expansion is a natural fit for us.”
