Pacer Distribution Services has leased a 194,000-square foot high-velocity transload and warehouse facility in Carson, California, and in doing so, PDS has increased the capacity of its Southern California campus to more than 800,000 square feet.
Complete warehouse, transportation and added-value services are provided from the PDS Southern California Campus, which is an integral part of the parent Pacer International logistics services network. "We provide shippers with full internet shipment visibility, including inventory, shipping documents, delivery status, and we work closely with our other business units to provide integrated logistics solutions," says Kent Prokop, president, PDS.
"We have expanded in response to the continued customer demand for fast service from Southern California ports to domestic destinations," Prokop says. In addition to serving the traditional import market, PDS handles growing levels of export traffic through its Southern California campus.
The Carson facility features tightly-scheduled drayage from/to port facilities, and high velocity transloading for moving retail and other valuable shipments through the facility and on to North American distribution locations.
"Key to the prompt service we provide is single-source drayage, provided by our PDS fleet of 130 owner-operator power units," Prokop says. "Plus, our customers rely on us to multiply their merchandising advantages with postponement strategies, delayed allocation, and shipment planning triggered by store-level demand." PDS facilities in Lynwood and South Gate, California coordinate with the new Carson facility as a full-service logistics campus.
