World Distribution Services Celebrates Grand Opening of New Facility in Tacoma WA

First West Coast facility that bolsters robust presence in Pacific Northwest
TACOMA, Wash. - Feb. 13, 2023 - PRLog -- World Distribution Services (WDS), a World Group company and leading provider of creative warehouse logistics solutions, hosted the grand opening of its new 300,000-square-foot Tacoma warehouse and distribution center on Wednesday, February 1.  Representing WDS's first west coast facility, the new Tacoma facility will further bolster World Group's robust presence in the Pacific Northwest.

Fully staffed and operational, WDS Tacoma offers cross-dock and transload services, distribution and fulfillment, and e-commerce capability. With a 36-foot clear height, 46 dock doors, a state-of-the-art warehouse management system (WMS), and ample parking for trailers, the new location offers a variety of storage and distribution solutions to the region and acts as a gateway to the US interior for importers using the Ports of Seattle and Tacoma.

The grand opening event drew a mix of local customers, government representatives, World Group employees, and officials from The Northwest Seaport Alliance (NWSA), including CEO John Wolfe and Commissioner Kristin Ang, who also spoke on the brief agenda. WDS President Duncan Wright kicked off the event by sharing how the Pacific Northwest became a focal point over the last 12 months for WDS and for World Group overall.

"CEO Wolfe and I were glad to participate in World Distribution Services' grand opening ceremony," said Commissioner Kristin Ang of The Northwest Seaport Alliance. "Both WDS and UWL have been welcome assets to the logistics community, and we're glad that they are bringing their longstanding experience and expertise to our gateway. The future is bright between our organizations, and we look forward to continuing to expand our partnership."

Further demonstrating its commitment to the Pacific Northwest and Sun Chief, the World Group recently acquired Pacific Cascade, a distribution and trucking organization in nearby Sumner, Washington, which will provide enhanced trucking and distribution services in the region. In addition, World Group recently announced UWL is opening a new 4,200-square-foot office in Seattle, which is strategically situated between the Port of Tacoma and Port of Seattle and serves as another indicator that the company is dedicated to expanding its footprint in the region.

"This event was a great way to connect the dots and put some faces to names," said World Group CEO Fred Hunger. "And it was gratifying to hear from port officials that the services we are providing are needed in the market. We are looking forward to continuing to grow our relationships locally and globally to serve our customers."
