Port Jersey Logistics on Monday announced that its family of companies now serve the Port of Savannah in southeast Georgia. This strategic move into the nation’s fourth-busiest port will serve the growing customer demand for reliable logistics services and the increasing trend among businesses to seek enhanced import options on the East Coast.
With a heavy focus on food logistics, Port Jersey Logistics and its fully owned partners, Continental Logistics and Tyler Distribution, will provide food warehousing options that were not readily available in the market.
Their services in Savannah include:
- Class A warehousing;
- Value-added services;
- Drayage services;
- Cross-dock/transload services;
- All domestic transportation services.
“Our customer-focused family approach to conducting business will resonate with the people who live and work in this area renowned for its Southern hospitality,” Port Jersey Logistics President Jeff Ramella said. “Our goal is to build long-term relationships, provide personalized solutions and set a new standard for customer service excellence in the region.”
This expansion push began in late 2022, when Tyler Distribution leased a 281,000-square- foot Class A warehouse in Savannah that offers food-grade facilities, omnichannel e-commerce capabilities and a large, secure container yard. The facility also accommodates office space for Continental Logistics, which handles all domestic transportation services for Port Jersey customers.
Since then, Port Jersey has actively recruited and hired skilled operations staff, forged partnerships with local business associations and development authorities, and engaged in ongoing employee training and support.
“This comprehensive approach underscores our commitment to delivering exceptional service and meeting the unique logistics needs of businesses in the region,” Ramella said.
This strategic move into the second-largest East Coast port — a primary maritime route for trade between the U.S. and countries in Asia, Latin America, and Europe — positions the Port Jersey family of brands for immense growth.
According to industry data, in 2022, the Port of Savannah handled 5,763,711 20-foot-equivalent units, a number projected to grow by 750,000 TEUs in 2023.
“We hope that this is only the first of many facilities that Port Jersey will be operating in the Savannah region,” Ramella said.
