Horizon Logistics, LLC, opened a new warehouse and cross-dock in Los Angeles to offer integrated
inbound and export logistics services to manufacturers and retailers. The 176,000 square-foot distribution center is located 10 miles from the LA/Long Beach ports with excellent connections to rail and road infrastructure within the Alameda Corridor.
Horizon Logistics is using the facility to offer an integrated distribution solution, including a port drayage service using company-owned Clean Truck and TWIC compliant fleet; air freight forwarding; rapid transload for
international import and export logistics; intermodal transportation management; value-added distribution services; and long-term storage as required by customers.
"While supply chains evolve away from Southern California for various reasons, LA/Long Beach will continue to be the primary gateway for U.S. imports and exports," said Frank Knafelz, Vice President of Operations. "Our
new facility is strategically located near both ports as well as LAX airport for efficient transload logistics linked to rail, road and air connections in addition to handling demand in the trans-pacific ocean market.
