US logistics provider to build new warehouse near the port of Baltimore

The US temperature-controlled logistics provider East Coast Warehouse & Distribution is building a new facility located near the port of Baltimore in the Tradepoint Atlantic Logistics Center at Sparrows Point.

The facility is expected to be complete and ready for use in June 2022.

“We’re thankful to our partners at Tradepoint and the Port of Baltimore who helped us make a smooth transition into the Baltimore market,” said East Coast Warehouse CEO Jamie Overley, adding that “This new facility – our second in the market – will allow us to expand our foothold, improve productivity, maximize flexibility and offer an increased speed to customers in the Mid-Atlantic market.”

Located 13.8 kilometres from the port of Baltimore, the new facility comprises approximately 16,260m² of warehousing space on more than 71,830m² of land, with the capacity to park and store 110 trailers and containers. The facility, which will be entirely temperature-controlled, will be dedicated to public refrigerated warehousing solutions as well as its East Coast Centralized Examination Services (CES) services, which will perform the following exams on-site:

  • US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Inspections
  • US Department of Agriculture (USDA) Agriculture Quarantine Inspections (AQI) and Tailgate Exams
  • Non-Intrusive Inspection (NII) and Contraband Enforcement Team (A-TCET)
  • Manifest Exam Team (MET)/Trade Compliance Exams

“Tradepoint Atlantic’s location in the Mid-Atlantic is the perfect place for ECW’s newest facility, providing for their continued growth in the region,” pointed out Marc Salotti, managing director of Tradepoint Atlantic.

This will be the second location for the company in Baltimore, following its acquisition last year of Temp-Distribution located on the I-95 corridor just outside the Port of Baltimore. The acquisition combined with East Coast CES services will enable the company to offer its full suite of warehousing, transportation, brokerage, and Centralized Examination Services to the Mid-Atlantic market.

Maryland Port Administration – Port of Baltimore executive director, William P. Doyle commented, “Bringing in [the port of Balitmore] one of the leading temperature-controlled food and beverage logistics providers with their newest warehouse/distribution center will further add to our refrigerated cargo capabilities. More distribution centers mean more ships, more commerce, and more jobs.”
