Pacer, Efill America set up warehousing alliance
Pacer Distribution Services, the warehousing and distribution unit of Pacer International, on Wednesday said it will expand its warehousing capability nationally through a strategic alliance with Efill America Inc., which operates more than 50 million square feet of warehouse capacity in about 100 cities.
The agreement also opens the door for PDS and other Pacer operating companies, including Pacer Global Logistics, to provide transportation and logistics services to Efill’s customers, said Kent Prokop, president of PDS, in a statement.
PDS itself operates more than 800,000 square feet of warehousing and cross-dock capacity in the Los Angeles area, the primary gateway for Asian imports to the United States. Its affiliates provide trucking, rail brokerage, intermodal and other transportation and supply chain management services.
