Gebrüder Weiss opens logistics centre in Atlanta 16 November 2021

Anticipates Its expansion will help customers control outbound costs

Gebrüder Weiss is adding to its existing footprint in the Southeast US with the opening of a newly constructed 6,120 m2 warehouse near Atlanta, Georgia. This month, the new facility opens at the Rockdale Technology Centre, Building 100, 2430 Dogwood Drive SE in Conyers, Georgia. Nearly 20 new full-time employees are expected to join Gebrüder Weiss at this location over the next few months.

The warehouse will provide businesses with storage, pick and pack, major retailer compliance capabilities, eCommerce solutions, and value-added services such as kitting.

A new warehouse operation in Atlanta is a welcome announcement as the logistics industry continues to reel from the impact of the pandemic. Gebrüder Weiss remains committed to its growth strategy in the US. Operations at the new warehouse are already in full swing and increase the organisation's operational capabilities in the Southeast. The warehouse is designed with 22 dock doors, Early Suppression, Fast Response (ESFR) sprinklers, racking, and bulk and small part distribution areas.

With freighting and shipping costs reaching levels we've never seen, providing customers with a new warehouse in the Southeast allows them to have better control over outbound costs and improves product delivery time.

Customers can continue to use a single Warehouse Management System solution while taking advantage of an additional location in Atlanta. The 3PL can work with them to split inventory and create efficiencies in their supply chain by being closer to customers and reducing lead times.
