HOUSTON – Throughout 2017 Dallas has experienced a strong economy, recovering faster than the rest of the USA with a below average unemployment rate. Job growth continues to be one of the top stories in the region. The central time zone, DFW airport, the relative low cost of doing business as well as an affordable cost of living in comparison to similar sized markets provide an attractive location for business relocations and expansion.
In preparation for continued growth in the Dallas region in 2018 and beyond, Crane Worldwide Logistics has recently invested in a new facility that incorporates 355,000sq. ft of office and warehouse space. Opening its doors in mid-December, the location provides both contract logistics and freight management support to clients importing and exporting into the Dallas Metroplex area. ‘Our clients are very positive about their future growth in the Dallas area and working side by side with them, our team has provided a state of the art facility located adjacent to Dallas airport to provide complete supply chain support in the years ahead. There are many organizations looking for logistics support in the area right now. Crane Worldwide Logistics has positioned itself accordingly and welcomes the prospect of developing a key hub for new clients also,’ comments Tim Zubradt, Chief Sales Officer at Crane Worldwide Logistics.
‘Our team has a wealth of experience in sectors such as Energy, Government Services, Life Sciences, Hi-Tech and Automotive and are available to assist companies with expansion in the area, thanks to our local knowledge’ he continues. The office and warehouse space currently has 75 employees, 5500 rack positions and significant warehouse space available for those organizations expanding in the Dallas area in 2018 and beyond.
