NRS plans distribution ôcityö
Logistics company National Retail Systems Inc. said it has completed the acquisition of a 100-acre site in Jersey City, N.J., where it plans to build a large freight distribution center.
Raymond Wisniewski, president and chief operating officer of NRS, said the project, dubbed NRS City, would include two 100,000-square-foot container transload facilities with a yard complex capable of accommodating 3,000 containers or trailers.
He also said NRS is developing an intermodal rail yard with direct access to main rail lines adjacent to the property.
Ten miles from the Port Newark-Elizabeth complex, the terminal will be across the street from NRS’s existing 100-acre distribution complex.
NRS also operates multiple facilities in the Los Angeles area, including an automated distribution center and more than 1 million square feet of distribution space within 10 miles from the Port of Long Beach.
The company plans to open a new Savannah transload facility later this year, and also has facilities in Greensboro, N.C., Tampa and Miami.
In August, it said it had signed a deal with Sinotrans, China’s largest logistics company, to offer factory-to-store logistics services to U.S. retailers.
