St. George Warehouse, which operates more than 1.9 million square feet of distribution center space nationwide, has entered the Savannah market with a new location minutes from the Port of Savannah’s Garden City Terminal. 

The new 160,000-square-foot distribution center, situated in Crossroads Business Park, is three miles from I-95, and five miles from the I-95 and I-16 interchange. 

Company officials said the facility, which features 28 truck bays, will primarily be used as a cross-dock operation with large capacity storage for medium to large retail customers, most of whom import consumer packaged goods, electronics, food and beverages, among other commodities. 

St. George’s future warehouse plans include building the facility into a multi-tenant model, combined with a container freight station operation.

At this time, St. George provides less than truckload, full truckload and intermodal transportation services through a selection of partners as well.

Since 2011, St. George has also operated a 45,000-square-foot facility in Atlanta, which links cargo to shipping destinations such as Memphis, Tenn., Little Rock, Ark., and Montgomery, Ala. St. George operates facilities located in California, New Jersey, Texas South Carolina and Illinois.

“As the closest port to Atlanta’s 4 million-person metro area, with superb rail links to markets like Birmingham, Memphis, Louisville and Charlotte, the Port of Savannah forms a distribution center hub,” said GPA Board Chairman Robert Jepson. “In Savannah alone, there are more than 4 million square feet of local warehouse space available, with an occupancy rate greater than 88 percent.”

Assurance of Supply: A Top Concern for Manufacturers

Every manufacturer has an assurance of supply problem to some extent due to the complexity of global sourcing. For years, manufacturers were blessed with high margins but margins have grown paper thin. You can’t fill up your distribution centers with excess inventory – not only is there a cost factor but the pace of business and consumer buying trends causes goods to quickly turn obsolete. Assurance of supply provides the speed and agility that is essential to being able to compete in today’s market.
