Averitt Express recently opened a new distribution and fulfillment center in Louisville, Kentucky, the latest move in the company’s continued growth of its distribution and fulfillment services.
The 324,000 square-foot enclosed-space facility will equip Averitt to further expand its capacity to handle the flow of domestic and international freight. The center is strategically located near the Louisville International Airport, as well as local railyards.
With its new Louisville location, Averitt will be able to streamline its customers’ supply chains throughout the Central and Southeast United States.
“Louisville is one of the nation’s busiest distribution hubs, and its location is ideal for distribution and fulfillment services,” said Ed Smith, Averitt’s vice president of distribution and fulfillment. “With this new location, we can reach 95% of the U.S. population by air within four hours and 65% within a day’s drive.”
Averitt expects a significant portion of the new center to be dedicated to its customers in the bourbon and spirits industries. Customers in these industries will be able to store and distribute both finished and unfinished goods at the location, allowing for accelerated production and convenient transportation solutions.
The new center will provide approximately 25 new jobs and roughly 40 temporary positions. It is located at 2103 South Park Road.
