CJ Logistics to expand presence in North American market with cold chain logistics center in the U.S.

CJ Logistics, South Korea’s top logistics firm, is set to establish a cold chain logistics hub in New Century, Kansas. With operations commencing next year, it aims to swiftly distribute goods across 85% of the U.S. within two days.

CJ Logistics Corp., South Korea’s leading logistics company, announced its plans on Sunday to construct a cold chain logistics centre in the United States, signalling a strategic move to bolster its position in the North American market.

The forthcoming facility, tailored to accommodate the transportation of cold storage products and frozen goods, will be strategically located in New Century, Kansas, benefitting from its proximity to a major railway network, as disclosed by the company.

Spanning 27,034 square meters, the centre is slated to commence operations in the third quarter of the following year, boasting the capability to efficiently distribute goods from the central state to approximately 85 per cent of the U.S. within two days.

CJ Logistics revealed its initial focus on managing the products of global food conglomerate Upfield, with intentions to subsequently extend its cold chain logistics services to a broader spectrum of clientele.

Furthermore, in line with its expansion strategy, CJ Logistics has outlined plans to establish an additional cold chain logistics centre in Georgia later in the current year, covering an area of 25,000 square meters.

This strategic initiative underscores CJ Logistics’ commitment to leveraging its expertise and resources to strengthen its foothold in the North American logistics landscape. By strategically positioning itself in key logistical hubs and investing in state-of-the-art infrastructure, the company aims to enhance its capacity to meet the evolving demands of its clients while simultaneously fostering growth opportunities in the region’s logistics sector.

The expansion into the North American market reflects CJ Logistics’ proactive approach to international expansion, aligning with its overarching goal of becoming a global leader in the logistics industry.
