Global supply chain solutions provider AIT Worldwide Logistics celebrated the grand opening of a new, modern facility in a popular Los Angeles freight forwarding corridor. The location will soon be the new workplace for more than 100 teammates who were formerly based in other Los Angeles-area AIT properties providing logistics expertise for customers in a wide range of industries, including special services for food, high-tech and life sciences shipping.
With 24/7 security—including round-the-clock video and in-person monitoring—18 dock doors, a secure yard, pharmaceutical pre-conditioning capabilities, a cage for high-value freight, and thousands of square feet of freezer and refrigerator space, the two-story, 106,000-square-foot warehouse is also strategically located near the 405 and 110 freeways for quick access to the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach, as well as Los Angeles International Airport.
With plans to grow the location’s teammate population by about 30% in the coming years, AIT’s Chief Operating Officer, Keith Tholan, noted that AIT also designed the space to attract top talent, incorporating state-of-the-art audiovisual and security technology, standing desks, a micro market with healthy food options, and other amenities.
This location joins the more than 50 AIT offices across North America—and more than 100 across the globe.
