East Coast Warehouse Expands New Jersey Presence with Additional Warehouse Space in Dayton

ELIZABETH, NJ – November 14, 2023 To better serve its customers, East Coast Warehouse & Distribution, a leading temperature-controlled logistics provider to the food and beverage industry, today announced an agreement to lease an entire 388,000 square foot warehouse building from Heller Industrial Parks, Inc. The brand-new building, located just south of the Port of New York/New Jersey in Dayton, NJ, is the latest step in the company’s expansion efforts and further demonstrates its commitments to its Northeast customers, while also offering an “off-port” solution in Central New Jersey.

“The Central New Jersey area continues to grow and attract commerce with a high level of support from state and local government,” said East Coast Warehouse CEO Jamie Overley. “Our investment in this facility in close proximity to the Port of New York/New Jersey, is a testament to our long-term commitment to the region and will allow us to continue to provide seamless distribution through the Northeast.”

From its Dayton, NJ warehouse, East Coast Warehouse will offer temperature-controlled warehousing, container drayage, local and regional trucking services, and national freight brokerage services. The company expects to open its doors in Dayton on October 1, 2023, and plans to hire 75 people within its first year of operation.

East Coast Warehouse has experienced significant growth over the last several years, from its expansion into the Port of Savannah and acquisition of Temp-Distribution of Maryland in 2021, to the opening of its second facility near the Port of Baltimore in the Tradepoint Atlantic Logistics Center at Sparrows Point in 2011, to its acquisition of Allied Brothers Intermodal in January 2023. Earlier this year, the company announced a partnership with BlueCargo to optimize container workflow from port to warehouse, helping to alleviate additional costs and fees resulting from ongoing port congestion.

The company continues to receive numerous awards and recognition. Since 2015, East Coast Warehouse has been recognized as a Top 3PL and Cold Storage Provider by Food Logistics Magazine, and since 2019, its sister company Safeway Trucking has been recognized as a Top 100 Trucking Company by Inbound Logistics. The company has also received awards related to its sustainability efforts, including being named as a Green Supply Chain Partner by Inbound Logistics earlier this year.
