VIENNA, Va., July 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- LaserShip, the east coast's leading parcel carrier, has announced the opening of its newest delivery hub in Jacksonville, FL. The new location allows LaserShip to reach an additional 2 million customers while improving delivery time in transit and enabling customers to receive their shipments faster than ever before.
The move signifies another step forward in LaserShip's strategic delivery network expansion. "The new facility in Jacksonville enhances our network connectivity in the southeast region, allowing us to reach significantly more households within our one day delivery footprint," states Josh Dinneen, VP of Supply Chain. "LaserShip's expanding coverage in this region will provide businesses and consumers with access to the most flexible delivery solutions on the east coast."
LaserShip also reports facility expansions in their Orlando and Fort Myers locations. Both regional delivery hubs have relocated to new buildings with significantly more loading docks and square footage, enabling increased throughput capacity and facilitating additional delivery lanes throughout Florida. The new 42,000 sq. ft. Orlando facility is roughly three times larger than the previous building and contains 10 dock doors positioned for both inbound and outbound loads. "The resulting increase in space from our Orlando move will allow the facility to become LaserShip's Florida sorting hub by 2014," said Regional Director Brandon Vasapolle. "The Fort Myers upgrade allows us to better manage sorting and loading operations and enhance package release times. As a result, customers receive their shipments much faster."
LaserShip's expansion signals increased demand for the carrier's same day and next day delivery services.
