3PL news: MIQ Logistics opens up new facility in Pennsylvania

Global third-party logistics (3PL) services provider MIQ Logistics said earlier this month that it has opened a new logistics center in Tannersville, Pa.

Company officials said that this facility is comprised of multiple buildings, which comprise about 70 acres, and more than 250 dock doors, with MIQ initially occupying the facility’s 150 dock-door cross-dock location and plans to use to additional space for future growth. They added that this logistics center is within a half-mile from Interstate 80, providing what it described as significant scale and easy access in New York and New Jersey markets and ports, coupled with a solid location for regional and national distribution.

This new facility will provide various distribution services, including: flow-through fulfillment, freight forwarding, consolidation/deconsolidation, forward and reverse logistics and transportation management. And it will also be able to support value added services like display building and kitting.

An MIQ spokesperson told LM that that this facility will function as a consolidation center and serve a large distribution customer, adding that the facility officially kicked off operations in mid-December.

“The opening of the Tannersville facility will mark the eighth time in 12 months that MIQ Logistics has enhanced its operations by investing in facilities which add more space, improve access, and expand service capabilities,” said John Carr, president and chief operating officer, in a statement.

MIQ has also made investments in the last year in logistics centers in Atlanta, Chicago (two facilities), Dallas, Vancouver, Washington, D.C. and Weehawken, N.J., as well as the company’s new world headquarters in Overland Park, Kan., according to company officials.
