Third-party logistics provider Kane Is Able, Inc. opened a 211,000 square foot distribution center in Rialto, California, located in the Inland Empire, 50 miles east of Los Angeles. This geographical expansion in Southern California will generate an annual savings of more than one million dollars in transportation costs, the company said. The facility will provide cross dock, distribution, and transportation services.
The new distribution center comes on the heels of KANE’s recent expansion in the Atlanta market. The Scranton, PA-based firm currently has a total of 21 facilities with primary locations in Southern California, Atlanta, Chicago, Kansas City, New Hampshire, and Maryland. It also has more than 2 million square feet of distribution space in Scranton, Pennsylvania, the site of KANE’s corporate headquarters. In addition to its distribution network, the company manages a transportation fleet with retail consolidation services to provide customers with on-time, overnight delivery service to Northeast states, as well as nationwide deliveries throughout the lower 48 states.
