Target Logistics doubles size in Dallas move

By: | at 08:00 PM | Channel(s): Transport Intermediaries  

Target Logistic Services is doubling its Dallas operations with a move to new offices and warehouse just minutes away from DFW International Airport.

The 50,000 square foot Target facility is housed in a stand alone, recently constructed building built to meet the requirements of an international logistics provider. The warehouse has 36’ ceilings to facilitate any racking requirements. Forty three dock doors with two drive-up ramps facilitate loading and unloading for rapid transfer of cargo. Separate areas for hazmat cargo are provided for, in addition to space for specialized freight including garment on hangers (GOH).

The new, expanded facility is part of Target’s growing logistics operations both domestically and worldwide. During the past year, a number of new facilities either have opened as in Boston or have doubled in size as in Chicago.

Under the direction of Tom Zalesky, Regional Vice President, the Dallas terminal offers a complete menu of supply chain services including freight consolidation, inventory control, customs clearance, pick & pack and management services. Target provides every type of transport mode; air, ocean and surface or a combination of the three to best suit the needs of the customer.

Describing the new facility as fully state of the art, Vice President Zalesky stated, “Target was outgrowing rapidly its old terminal and we needed more office and warehouse space. Our list of new clients was growing while existing customers were awarding Target more business. Target customers are part of the Dallas-Ft. Worth business community that is simply resonating with unprecedented economic activity. They include companies involved in electronic, and computer components, apparel, auto and machine parts, oil equipment, set-ups for trade shows and sellers of consumer merchandise through catalogs,” said Zalesky.

The regional vice president emphasized, “It takes just one telephone call to our new facility in Dallas to open the door to Target’s remarkably wide menu of logistics capabilities worldwide.”
