Power Freight Systems, Inc. today announced the company's lease of an additional 85,000 square foot distribution center in Hillsboro, Oregon. This latest property lease is necessary to support the company's ongoing growth in the Portland metro area, and will provide distribution and logistics services to the company's current and expanding customer base.
The building, located at 22310 NW Wagon Way in Hillsboro, is Power Freight Systems' fifth long term lease property in the Portland area. The company also operates other locations in the market under shorter term occupancy agreements. The logistics services provider's newest distribution facility is fully operational as of December 1, 2011.
Malcolm Winspear, President of Power Freight Systems, remarked that "Power Freight Systems is very excited about this latest addition to our material storage and distribution capabilities in Portland, and underscores our dedication to the Oregon and southern Washington Markets. We believe that our strategic plan for investments in technology and best in class distribution facilities, combined with the company's ongoing commitment to exemplary customer service, provides growth opportunities even in these difficult economic times."
Winspear added: "We are fortunate to have been able to secure this latest facility, which is in a very favorable location to support our Hillsboro customer base. The prior tenant was a knowledgeable and capable operator, and as a result the building requires minimal modifications to suit our business needs. It will take just a few short weeks to adequately configure the new facility to our Company's specifications, and will bring our total facility footprint in greater Portland to over 300,000 square feet."
Power Freight Systems currently operates over 750,000 square feet of warehousing and distribution space in multiple US markets, and most recently opened a facility in Southern California, earlier this year. The company has an established reputation for exceptional customer service, while delivering industry leading performance levels in transportation, inventory management, and material distribution services.
Additionally, Power Freight System's proprietary logistics software tool empowers clients to easily manage their transportation and inventory from any Internet-enabled device, without requiring any software downloads or sophisticated user knowledge.
