AIT Worldwide Logistics Offices in Atlanta Merge at New Location
The new facility will accommodate the exponential growth of AIT’s retail logistics business
ITASCA, ILLINOIS (September 1, 2016) – AIT Worldwide Logistics’ Atlanta offices have relocated and begin combined retail logistics and freight forwarding operations at a unified facility today. Continued growth spurred the move to a larger space with greater warehouse capacity.
AIT’s Retail Logistics division is experiencing a flurry of activity in 2016 that kept AIT-Atlanta’s old facilities at maximum capacity. The spacious newly-constructed office helps to improve operational efficiency. Faster processing and increased consolidations will reduce handling and minimize the risk of cargo damage. The larger warehouse will also allow co-workers to offer more forward stocking opportunities for customers. Like the former office, the new AIT-Atlanta remains a Container Freight Station bonded facility.
Doubling the size of the previous freight forwarding location, AIT-Atlanta’s new facility includes 62,500 square feet of warehouse space with the ability to expand up to 98,000 square feet. The warehouse is served by 17 dock doors including a 144-inch door designed to handle oversized upper deck cargo from air freighters. More than 6,000 square feet of office space will serve as the new working environment for co-workers in customer service, operations and sales.
Keith Tholan, Executive Vice President at AIT said, “The Atlanta station has seen more than 50% growth in 2016 thanks to the tremendous support and partnership from our customer base. We also recognize our AIT-Atlanta co-workers who have been successfully striving for world-class performance while earning the customers’ trust.”
The new AIT-Atlanta office is located just off Interstate 85 and less than 15 minutes from Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport:
