ITASCA, — AIT Worldwide Logistics said it recently relocated its team of transportation logistics professionals in the metropolitan Cincinnati area to a nearby, larger location.
With 12 dock doors, one drive-in, and 74,000 square feet of warehouse space, the new AIT-Cincinnati is well-suited for cross-docking operations, including stacking, palletizing, shrink wrapping, labeling, organizing and routing the floor-loaded freight arriving from consumer retail shippers.
“This new facility enhances our ability to serve customers more efficiently,” said Ryan Carter, AIT’s vice president, Americas. “It greatly expands the warehouse footprint, which optimizes the flow and presentation of cargo, ultimately improving our customers’ speed-to-market.”
According to the site’s operations manager, the Cincinnati team primarily supports non-conveyable freight — big, bulky products like swimming pools and high-end furniture that don’t fit in with the strict scope defined by the major parcel carriers. AIT offers an economical large parcel delivery service that can save shippers nearly $2,000 per delivery for their largest, bulkiest items.
