SEKO Logistics enhances presence in US East Coast

SEKO Logistics has opened new regional distribution hubs on the United States East Coast to manage growth in Baltimore and Charlotte.

“Our need for warehouse space is growing rapidly in the United States and our new facilities in Baltimore and Charlotte are the first of many we will be opening over the next 12 months to stay one step ahead of our clients’ growth. This latest expansion follows the opening of larger SEKO Ecommerce and Omni-Channel hubs in other prime locations such as Los Angeles, Chicago, New Jersey and Atlanta,” said Brian Bourke, SEKO’s chief growth officer.

The new Baltimore operation offers over 160,000 square feet of storage space to support customers in the medical, e-commerce and defense industries. SEKO's defense and commercial logistics solutions in Baltimore include specialised inspection and acceptance, packaging and labeling, reverse logistics and last mile services.

In addition, the facility is ISO 13485 certified for handling and managing logistics for Medical Devices, according to a statement.

“These investments demonstrate how fast we are growing outside of our main gateways in the US and emphasise the importance of Baltimore and Charlotte as strategic distribution hubs,” noted Bourke.

At the same time, the company has invested in a tenfold expansion of its facilities in Charlotte, North Carolina.

SEKO's new 110,000 square foot warehouse operation is fully C-TPAT compliant. With 24 dock doors, the facility combines the technology, equipment and safety systems required to scale to each client's project requirements, according to the company.

SEKO's expansion to Baltimore and Charlotte will also increase its focus on White Glove and Cross Dock services for value-added Freight Forwarding services in both locations.

“Baltimore is a market where we are seeing particularly strong growth from ecommerce clients who recognise the Port of Baltimore as a low cost alternative that enables them to achieve next day distribution to their customers in New York. Charlotte is also a key investment area for SEKO because it is one of the fastest-growing regions in the United States, and we are seeing a significant increase in demand in this market,” commented Bourke.
