The Chicago metro area will soon host G&D Integrated's eighth warehouse facility, located at 330 Corporate Drive in Joliet. G&D announced the facility will be fully operational by June 1.
"With the addition of this Chicago-area warehouse, G&D Integrated demonstrates their continued commitment to the expansion of their logistics business," Vice President of Contract Logistics Isaac Aldrich said. "We understand that time to market and the proximity to customers, ports and rail yards are all key factors that make Chicago a very important region in the supply-chain success of our customers."
The warehouse is conveniently located near I-80 and I-55 as well as the BNSF Railway and Union Pacific Railroad's Global IV Intermodal Facility. Services offered at the warehouse facility will include assembly, manufacturing and distribution. G&D will also offer warehousing and transportation services to its customers.
G&D is headquartered in Morton and employs approximately 1,000 workers at more than 20 facilities in North America. Its other seven warehouses are located in Illinois, Indiana, Minnesota and South Carolina. The Joliet location provides easy access for not only G&D's transportation services but also a wide range of amenities for employees and customers, including dining, hotels and retail establishments.
