Louisville, Kentucky, July 25, 2019—DCL Logistics, a West Coast-based ecommerce, B2B, and multi-channel fulfillment and logistics expert, held the grand opening of their seventh and largest fulfillment center in Louisville Kentucky. In attendance with the DCL leadership and operations teams were: Alex Mercer, Louisville Economic Development Manager, from the office of Mayor Greg Fischer; Terri Weber, Investor Relations Manager, Chamber of Commerce, Greater Louisville Inc.
Situated in one of the biggest shipping hubs in the US, the Louisville facility is DCL’s first outside of California. This is an important expansion for the West Coast-based logistics provider because more than 70% of the US population is east of the Mississippi. The two-thirds of DCL clients who ship to the East Coast will now be supported with faster transit times and lower transportation costs. The new building is a 163,000 square facility with 25 dock doors, 375 kWh solar system, and a temperature control room, plus the team is looking into robotics to support more automated fulfillment.
“We are excited that DCL Logistics has planted roots in Louisville with its new facility and look forward to its continued growth and success. Louisville is proud to be a major logistics hub where businesses can enjoy a low cost of doing business, realize faster delivery times, and benefit from the wealth of other distribution-focused companies already located here.”
This expansion project started in 2013, and was born out of a need to support customers shipping to the East Coast. Norman Tu, CEO, and Dave Tu, President, evaluated many cities in the South, Midwest, and Northeast. They chose Louisville for many reasons, namely that it is within close proximity to many regions of the country. After leasing a facility for three years, DCL purchased 14 acres of land to build our own facility. By owning the land, DCL has greater flexibility to provide customized logistics support to it’s world-renowned and reputable clients.
“By building our own building in Louisville, it’s a statement that we are committed to being here for a long time. When our customers grow and thrive, we do too. DCL Logistics is excited about our future in Kentucky.”
