The 190,000 square foot expansion in the New York City area and investments in sortation capacity will help meet historic e-commerce delivery demand.
We’re thrilled to announce that we’ve expanded two branches in the New York City metropolitan area and have invested in automation to increase capacity in order to help our customers meet unprecedented levels of demand fueled by the growth in online shopping.
The Secaucus branch located at 50 Hartz Way has expanded to 234,972 square feet, an increase of almost 140,000 square feet. The Mineola branch located at 255 East 2nd Avenue has expanded by over 50,000 square feet to 85,000 square feet. In both branches, we’ve partnered with Hytrol, the leader in the design and production of materials handling systems, for the material handling equipment to increase throughput by 4,000 packages per hour per facility.
At our state-of-the-art sortation center in South Brunswick, New Jersey, we have further invested in a fully automated small package sorter to increasing sorting capacity by 7,000 packages to 31,000 packages per hour.
In addition to expanding infrastructure, during the holiday season, we plan to add thousands of workers across 20 states in the Eastern and Midwestern United States.
We’re excited to grow and expand our infrastructure in the New York City area ahead of the busy holiday shopping season and increase our capacity to help our e-commerce customers fulfill historic levels of demand. We also look forward to welcoming more employees to the LaserShip team.”
