Allen Distribution, a third-party logistics provider, is constructing a 500,000-square-foot warehouse in the Mid-Atlantic region's busiest transportation corridor, along Interstate 81 in Carlisle, Pa. The new facility, offering 50 dock doors and more than 100 trailer parking spaces, will consolidate the space of five smaller leased spaces, bringing Allen's total distribution capability in south central Pennsylvania to nearly 3 million square feet.
Slated to open in November 2014, the warehouse will occupy more than 36 acres and feature a 32-foot clear height, high-efficiency lighting with motion sensors, and more than 200,000 square feet of cooler storage.
"Our new facility offers additional scale to support our growth, and the growth of our customers, while solidifying our position as a leading provider of custom logistics services," said Allen President Ryan Heishman.
Specializing in the distribution of consumer packaged goods, including foods and beverages, Carlisle-based Allen develops strategic distribution solutions through integrated transportation, warehousing and value-added services.
