Matson Logistics, a provider of multimodal transportation, warehousing, and distribution services, has obtained distribution center space in Savannah, Ga.
“Our new operation expands on our ability to move retail goods in through the Port of Savannah,” said Mark Ferzacca, assistant vice president of sales for Matson Logistics Warehousing, in a statement. “More companies are using East Coast distribution centers to have their product closer to a rapidly growing regional market.”
Matson has contracted for 65,000 square feet, with the ability to increase to 125,000 square feet. The move follows a September expansion to its Bryan County operation, which added 237,600 square feet to its previous 135,000 square-foot facility.
The distribution center is less than two miles from Interstate 95, 10 miles from I-16 and within eight miles of the Port of Savannah. The property features 125,000 square feet of space, a clearance of 32 feet and 65 truck bays.
According to the Georgia Ports Authority, the Port of Savannah forms a distribution center hub, with more than 4 million square feet of local warehouse space available, with an occupancy rate greater than 88 percent. There are 102 distribution centers across Georgia that are 500,000 square feet or larger.
