The Pacific Northwest has been a high growth region for us over the past few years and continues to accelerate, particularly with activity in the high tech manufacturing and alternative energy sectors.
Portland, Oregon (PRWEB) May 03, 2011
Power Freight Systems, Inc. today announces the addition of a new 51,000 square foot facility associated with the company’s Portland, Oregon logistics operations center. The warehousing and distribution space is located near the Portland airport and addresses the growing demand for 3PL services in the greater Portland market, including southern Washington State.
The additional space, located at 5349 NE 152nd Place in Portland, is strategically located to provide rapid access to the Portland airport and the Port of Portland, as well as convenient service to and from Vancouver Washington and the western portion of the state.
Malcolm Winspear, President of Power Freight Systems stated, “The Pacific Northwest has been a high growth region for us over the past few years and continues to accelerate, particularly with activity in the high tech manufacturing and alternative energy sectors.”
This addition of service and warehousing capacity follows the recent expansion of Power Freight Systems’ headquarters in the San Francisco Bay Area. In March 2011 the company added 24,000 square feet of C-TPAT–certified (Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism), secured distributions and operations space, bringing the total Bay Area headquarters location to 135,000 square feet.
“Recent growth initiatives are in part due to improving economic environment in the domestic United States. We’ve seen steady investments in our customers’ manufacturing operations, leading to increased demand for our 3PL and 4PL logistics services. We have also been aggressively pursuing new client industries and meeting a welcome reception for our custom tailored warehousing and logistics services”, emphasized Winspear.
The new east Portland facility will provide logistics services and hub terminal support for expedited air cargo shipments inbound and outbound from PDX. It will also provide material distribution, inventory management, and order fulfillment services for customers more efficiently than through the company’s other facilities south and west of Portland.
