Saddle Creek Expands Omnichannel Fulfillment Operations in Lexington, Ky.

Saddle Creek Logistics Services has announced the expansion of its omnichannel fulfillment operations in Lexington, Ky., to accommodate growth with existing customers as well as new business demand, according to a press release.

Initially, Saddle Creek will lease 160,000 square feet of space with the option to expand to 350,000. The new location will be the third-party logistics provider’s 44th U.S. facility and second in Lexington. Each integrated logistics facility offers a mix of warehousing, omnichannel fulfillment, transportation and packaging services.

The Lexington location will offer easy access to strategic points and interstates — Interstates 64 and 75 — in the company’s nationwide network, offering quicker transit and reduced freight cost to customers shipping directly to consumers as well as retailers.

“Lexington is a prime location for growing our omnichannel fulfillment business,” said Perry Belcastro, Saddle Creek vice president of fulfillment services. “We are able to leverage our existing expertise and talent to provide a solid foundation for our expansion, so we can ensure service excellence right out of the gate.”

The facility will be available for occupancy July 1.
