BLG Logistics is locating new operations in Charleston County. Designed to support Mercedes-Benz Vans’ production operations, the company’s new logistics facility is projected to create 28 jobs.
Located in Suite F at 4279 Crosspoint Drive in Ladson, S.C., BLG Logistics’ new operations started in July 2018. BLG Logistics is utilising innovative technology and its global expertise to support the international vehicle assembly supply chain.
The company’s new Charleston County facility will manage parts and materials inventory for just-in-time and just-in-sequence operations, as well as transportation for Mercedes-Benz Vans by coordinating deliveries of assembled, tested and inspected auto parts.
“BLG Logistics is excited about continuing our successful growth strategy in North America with the opening of our newest facility in Charleston County, S.C. We have a great team in place, led by Director of Operations Paul DeGroot, and eagerly anticipate partnering with great local manufacturers. We have been welcomed with open arms by the Charleston business community and look forward to giving back to the communities in which we work and play,” said Thomas Burke, BLG Logistics Director of Sales and Marketing.
“South Carolina’s logistics sector continues to impress, and today’s announcement by BLG Logistics is a further testament to that. We have everything we need to not only make high-quality products in South Carolina, but to move those products all over the globe. Congratulations to BLG Logistics on this tremendous new venture,” said Gov. Henry McMaster.
“BLG’s worldwide and innovative expertise of fully-integrated logistics systems is a welcome addition to the North Charleston economy, as they further bolster our city’s strong automotive sector. We look forward to seeing BLG grow to support other industrial original equipment manufacturing partners,” said North Charleston Mayor, Keith Summey.
