GREEN BAY, Wis. (June 21, 2016) — The Port of New York and New Jersey is the third largest in the United States and the busiest on the East Coast. In 2015 alone, the port handled over six million import/export ocean containers. Schneider opened its Port Reading, N.J., facility in December 2015 with much success, but quickly saw the burden that shippers were facing to secure enough drayage, transloading and warehousing services. Six months later, the premier provider of transportation and logistics services, has significantly expanded its warehouse space, doubling the size to 300,000 square feet to further serve shippers utilizing the Port of New York and New Jersey.
In addition to meeting shippers' security and safety specifications, such as a fenced-in facility with a guarded and controlled entrance, the expanded facility provides ample storage space, including:
• 300,000 square feet (up from 147,500)
• 48 dock doors (up from 23)
• Space for 76 trailer spots (up from 35)
• Additional off-site yard availability
The warehouse's location is conveniently positioned near the Port of New York and New Jersey, the New Jersey Turnpike, Newark International Airport and other key facilities, such as FedEx and UPS.
"Customers are looking for warehousing, transloading and drayage providers that can meet their needs at multiple ports," said John Miller, vice president of commercial development, transloading and distribution. "We quickly came to realize that an expansion of the warehouse would give Schneider increased coverage of the top three East Coast ports while assisting our customers on a larger scale."
With over 20 years of warehouse and port logistics experience at locations across the United States, Schneider's expansion of its footprint in the Northeast provides international shippers access to the company's expertise. Schneider's portfolio of services within its Port Logistics division includes over 6.8 million square feet of warehouse and transload space in California, Colorado, Georgia, Illinois, Texas, Virginia and New Jersey. Schneider also offers dray capability in 36 markets throughout the United States.
