Saddle Creek Logistics Services announced plans to open a 544,320-square-foot e-commerce fulfillment distribution center in Walton, Ky., further expanding its nationwide network of distribution centers and strengthening its omnichannel supply chain capabilities.
“The rapid acceleration of e-commerce growth over the past year has intensified demand for centrally located distribution facilities that are equipped to accommodate growing online and omnichannel order volume,” says Duane Sizemore, senior vice president, marketing and business development, Saddle Creek. “Fulfilling orders from a central location, like the Cincinnati area, allows merchants to minimize transit time and cost and improve service levels for their customers.”
