For everyone in the supply chain, business is booming. Spurred by this growth, we have seen big changes at C&K Trucking. We are striving to serve our customers as well as our owner-operators better by investing in our existing infrastructure and adding new facilities to our operations.
We opened a brand new facility in Jacksonville, Florida at the end of last year. The terminal provides our owner-operators with more than five acres of land available for parking and is conveniently located near the Jacksonville port. The modern building is designed for the comfort of C&K Trucking staff, owner operators, and visitors.
Late last year we purchased a new property in in Channahon Illinois. Located near Joliet and convenient to major highways, the location is considered an inland port. It offers more than 15 acres of land for container storage. After the purchase, we built a second office/administration center in addition to the one that already existed at the location.
Earlier this year, we announced the opening of our brand new terminal in Kearny, New Jersey. Employees and owner-operators are now enjoying this busy facility, which is convenient to PNCT.
In addition to our building improvements, we have also made important upgrades to our existing terminals to better accommodate parking for owner-operators, office space for our employees, and/or container storage. These include:
We also built out and renovated our Atlanta terminal and made interior improvements to the office area.
We moved to a more spacious facility to accommodate our administrative needs there.
CHICAGO RIDGE, IL
We also recently made improvements to our flagship location in Chicago Ridge, Illinois. We installed new air conditioning, performed an impressive kitchen remodel, and replaced the roof.
We are currently working on an improvement project to expand our container yard at our facility in Memphis, Tennessee. We are now in the second phase with construction to be completed this year.
C&K Trucking is also excited to announce that there are more great changes on the way! We recently negotiated the purchase of a new 33,000 sq ft office building Orange Park, Florida for our 3PL partner, AV Logistics. We are also seeking to purchase more chassis to support our operations. In other words, keep your eye on C&K Trucking as we are continually making changes to serve you better. Stay tuned for more!
