Allen Distribution, a third-party logistics provider based in south central Pennsylvania, is constructing a new 500,000 square foot warehouse in the Mid-Atlantic region’s busiest transportation corridor along Interstate 81 in Carlisle, Pennsylvania. The new facility, which will feature 50 dock doors and more than 100 trailer parking spaces, will consolidate the space of five smaller, leased spaces and bring Allen’s total distribution capability in the area to nearly three million square feet.
Expected to open in November 2014, the warehouse property will occupy over 36 acres immediately off exit 44 off Interstate 81. The facility will feature a 32-foot clear height, high-efficiency lighting with motion sensors, and more than 200,000 square feet of cooler storage.
“Our new facility offers additional scale to support our growth, and the growth of our customers, while solidifying our position as a leading provider of custom logistics services,” said Ryan Heishman, company president. “We’re extremely pleased to be able to offer customers even greater service capabilities from one of the country’s most strategic logistics locations.”
