Averitt Express has opened a 324,000ft2 distribution and fulfillment center in Louisville, Kentucky that will enable it to further expand its capacity to handle the flow of domestic and international freight.
This investment forms part of the company’s wider growth of distribution and fulfillment services. With its new Louisville location, Averitt will be able to streamline its customers’ supply chains throughout the central and southeast USA.
Averitt expects a significant portion of the new center to be dedicated to its customers in the bourbon and spirits industries. Customers in these industries will be able to store and distribute both finished and unfinished goods at the location, enabling accelerated production and convenient transportation solutions.
Ed Smith, vice president of distribution and fulfillment of Averitt, said, “Louisville is one of the nation’s busiest distribution hubs, and its location is ideal for distribution and fulfillment services. With this new location, we can reach 95% of the US population by air within four hours and 65% within a day’s drive.”
