DSV to open new warehouse in New Jersey, USA
Having opened its first US warehouse on the West coast last year, DSV has now announced the opening of a new contract logistics facility in Edison, New Jersey.
The new 10,000 square metre distribution centre will offer a wide range of logistics services. Among the facility’s first customers are a number of European retailers who are currently launching or expanding their activities in the USA.
The New Jersey warehouse is strategically located with respect to the existing facility in Fontana, California, in order to offer improved order lead times for East Coast deliveries.
Piet Mulders, President of DSV Solutions USA, said: “Our facilities are positioned to complement each other and help us cover a wider geographic remit in North America.”
Together, these two DSV facilities reinforce the company’s existing network of 26 locations in the USA. The warehouse in Fontana serves as a major point of entry to the North American market for Asian-sourced products, while the facility in Edison provides an excellent gateway for products imported from Europe.
DSV is steadily realising its ambition to further extend its market coverage through organic growth by following customers as they move into new markets.
Brian Ejsing, CEO of DSV Solutions said: “As a result of being an integral part of their supply chain for years, our customers prefer to rely on DSV, our people, processes and systems, to facilitate their market expansion rather than selecting an unknown local provider in a new country.
“DSV’s strong ties with its customer base, notably in Europe and Asia, represent an enormous source of growth potential in the USA.”
In the USA, DSV is primarily focused on freight management services and contract logistics, capitalising on the excellent US network of distribution providers with complementary delivery services and areas.
