World Distribution Services has added to its warehousing footprint in the U.S. with a new development in Savannah.

“We look forward to elevating our service offerings through our expansion in this market,” says WDS Vice President, John Morrow. “This facility exhibits many exciting features such as: 100,000 square feet, 12 dock doors, 28’ clear height, expansive trailer parking and easy access to all major freeways. Our proximity to port allows for quick freight turnaround times and the ability to meet last minute export shipments.”

Morrow continues: “This strategic expansion demonstrates the commitment WDS has to offering shippers and freight forwarders a single source for logistics solutions using the interconnected warehousing network that WDS has built across the U.S. With the Savannah facility, we now have a new hub for American commerce.”

The Port of Savannah is centrally located to serve the U.S. Southeast – the fastest growing region in the nation. This is illustrated by the fact that 22 percent of the U.S. population and industry is best served by the Port of Savannah and 44 percent are within easy reach of the inland connectivity infrastructure. As cargo demands parallel the population growth of this region, efficient access to trade via Georgia’s ports will become even more vital.

“We are very excited to begin offering services to our valued customers in the Savannah market,” said Dale Young, Regional Operations Manager for WDS. “The work that the Georgia Ports Authority has done to grow the Port of Savannah and position it to take advantage of new market opportunities now and in the future, played a large role in our decision to locate our new facility here in Savannah. The Port has been a great partner throughout this process, and we look forward to growing that partnership and becoming an active member in the local maritime logistics community.”

 The new facility is located at 47 Sonny Perdue Drive Garden City, Georgia.
