SOUTH CAROLINA Ports Authority (SCPA) officials celebrated the expansion of the Frontier Logistics local operations, with the groundbreaking of a 550,000 square-foot warehouse, which will support the handling of plastic and resin exports from the Port of Charleston.

'Frontier plays an integral role in the handling of SCPA's plastics and resin business,?said SCPA president and CEO Jim Newsome.



'Charleston is the emerging pivot point for both export and import US resin, and the Frontier Logistics expansion is a key component of the Port's planned above-market volume growth,' he said.



With the port's synthetic resin exports growing 55 per cent since 2011, demand for facilities has increased. Frontier's groundbreaking on 26 acres at the former Navy base will be a significant advantage for continued growth.



'This is an exciting day for Frontier Logistics as we celebrate the groundbreaking of our new facility,' said Frontier Logistics CEO George Cook.



'It took the collective efforts of many to get this project to where it is today. We look forward to being positive stewards in the Charleston community, and to support the growing cargo needs for the Ports Authority,' he said.



The new site will be rail-served by Palmetto Railways, which will connect it to Norfolk Southern and CSX routes, according to an SCPA statement.



Established in 1997, Frontier Logistics has operations in South Carolina and Texas.
