Baltimore, MD 3PL Logistics Services: Truckload, Store Delivery, Consolidation, Deconsolidation, and Dedicated Fleet
The “Baltimore Terminal” is actually just outside the city’s lines in Columbia, MD. The facility is 120,000 square feet, but National Retail Systems, Inc. only occupies 79,000 square feet of the entire facility. The portion of the building that NRS utilizes has 23 dock doors. Current services offered in the building are consolidation, deconsolidation, and warehousing.
The terminal is conveniently located just off of Interstate 95 that runs from North to South of the East Coast. This location is about 30 miles north of Washington DC.
In 2015, the Port of Baltimore was named the most efficient container port in the U.S. by the Journal of Commerce. Baltimore averaged 75 container moves per hour per berth, and handled 32.4 million tons of international cargo across its dock last year. Baltimore is ranked as the top port among all U.S. ports for handling auto and light trucks, farm and construction machinery, imported gypsum, imported sugar, and imported aluminum.
The Baltimore Terminal was acquired at the request of a customer that had a 30-day timeline. All hands were on deck to locate a facility, hire all new personnel, and bring the building up to code for safety regulations. Members of the National Retail Systems, Inc. team temporarily relocated to ensure operations had a smooth transition, and worked around the clock to train new staff on every function of a fast-paced facility from dispatch, human resources, management, and even security protocol. The 30-day move-in operation was executed successfully, and is just one example of many where NRS has gone above and beyond for a customer.
