RLS Logistics to expand cold storage warehouse in Newfield

Glassboro-based RLS Logistics on Tuesday said it plans to expand its Newfield cold storage warehouse location. The expansion is estimated to be complete by the fourth quarter.

“We are thrilled to expand at our Newfield cold storage warehouse. This development allows our teams to grow not only in our cold storage business, but also our e-commerce fulfillment and cross-docking warehouse business units,” Russell Leo, CEO of RLS Logistics, said.

The third-party logistics warehouse will provide frozen and refrigerated food manufacturers, distributors, processors and importers in the Greater Philadelphia region with public cold storage warehouse capacity relief and access to RLS’ temperature-controlled freight brokerage and less-than-truckload shipping programs, including Walmart and LTL consolidation programs.

“We are thrilled to announce the expansion at our Newfield, New Jersey, campus because Newfield houses traditional cold storage, our LTL cross-dock and direct-to-consumer fulfillment business units; we have always been tight on capacity. This expansion allows us to increase inventory storage and our capabilities in fulfillment and LTL cross-docking,” John Gaudet, vice president of RLS Logistics, said. “It is a great opportunity we are thrilled to offer to the East Coast marketplace.”
