TRADEPORT LOGISTICS LLC and MDH Partners LLC have announced plans for a 100-door transload facility and a 650,000 square-foot fulfillment center at the Savannah River International Trade Park. The two developments are expected to bring more than 400 full- and part-timejobs to the Savannah area, and serve a growing demand for logistics space.
TradePort Logistics is a newcompany that counts among its founders
Savannah native and longtime warehouse developer George Powers.
Powers founded American Port Services in 1987, and took the company
from 50,000 square feet at its start to 13 million square feet with locations in
the Midwest, and on the East, West and Gulf Coasts before selling APS in 2005.
Powers and former APS Executive John Edwards stayed on after the sale, with
Powers leaving in 2007, and Edwards parting with the company recently
to help form TradePort.
MDH Partners LLC is an Atlanta based real estate investment company
formed in 2005 by CEO Jeff Small. MDH has a portfolio of over 13 million square feet of properties, across seven states from Virginia to Florida.
Powers, President and CEO of TradePort, said the reason to invest
in the Savannah market is simple.
