CONOVER, N.C. – To reduce delivery times, furniture delivery carrier Zenith Global Logistics opened a new warehouse, freight and split container hub in Orlando as part of the company’s strategic plan to establish a regional network of delivery hubs.
“Because Florida is one of the largest markets for furniture in the United States, Orlando was an ideal location for our latest expansion,” said CEO Jack Hawn. “The Orlando hub opens additional opportunities for manufacturers seeking pool distribution or split container programs. Ultimately this will reduce transit times, which is a key component for customers to gain a competitive advantage in today’s market.”
The facility opened with an initial 20,000 square feet, with room for expansion, and will provide service to Florida, allowing Zenith to run loads direct from California, Mississippi, Texas, and its East Coast hubs to The Sunshine State. Zenith Global Logistics services retailers and manufacturers throughout North America with warehousing, consolidation, and full/split container programs originating from multiple domestic and Asia locations.
Since the inception of its national network plan, Zenith has opened regional facilities throughout the U.S. including, Atlanta, Baltimore, Boston, Dallas, Indianapolis, New York, San Antonio, Tupelo, Miss., and West Palm Beach, Fla. It also boosted its North Carolina storage and handling capacity by more than 30 percent when it acquired the former Boyles Furniture facility in Conover as its new corporate headquarters.
