VA, NY, NJ: LaserShip Expands Three Locations with New, Larger Facilities

23 Nov, 2012

LaserShip continues to experience tremendous growth, shifting several of its critical branches into new and larger facilities. In Virginia, New Jersey, and New York, delivery hubs have recently moved into locations aimed at optimizing delivery efficiency. LaserShip, which currently provides deliveries to nearly one-third of the U.S. population and operates locations in ten states, has experienced consistent organic growth over the last four years. These facility upgrades signal a critical shift in time for the anticipated seasonal spikes.

LaserShip Dulles, one of organization's highest volume hubs transferred its operations to a new 35,000 sq. ft. state-of-the-art facility in Chantilly, VA.  This new hub doubles LaserShip's regional throughput capacity, features inside loading, enhanced security, and updated networking capabilities.

In New Jersey, a recent move to East Rutherford provides 23,000 sq. ft. of distribution space, and boasts added loading docks, advanced security and much more office space. "The ability to conduct loading indoors will reduce defects in transit and increase sort speed, allowing us to significantly increase productivity, just in time for peak volume", says Josh Dinneen, Vice President of Supply Chain.

LaserShip continues its expansion in the New York tri-state area, with a new Queens location which extends coverage in the boroughs and Long Island. The new building provides a more efficient structure for managing diverse client needs and offers additional loading space, allowing for higher volume and throughput capacity.

This round of expansion completes fourth quarter goals; plans to open additional LaserShip facilities in Q1 2013 are quickly gaining momentum. Stay tuned…
