Ralco opens new distribution center in Marshall
Ralco is pleased to announce the opening of a new 37,500-square-foot distribution center along Highway 23 in Marshall. The expansion provides more capacity and efficiency for the future of the company in the Marshall community.
The new distribution center helps consolidate two Ralco properties into one. Previously, Ralco’s distribution center was located on Lake Road. The new building was constructed to merge the distribution center with the existing Ralco East Complex on Highway 23, allowing more space for employee offices and product containment all in one location.
“While the locations don’t seem far apart, Ralco trucks transfer 10-20 loads per day between Ralco’s East Complex and the old distribution center on Lake Road,” said Dave Einerson, Logistics Manager for Ralco. “The elimination of those loads will save us valuable time and make us more efficient for our customers.”
The distribution center will be able to hold 100 truckloads of product and includes 6 loading docks versus the previous capacity of 80 truckloads and 4 docks.
“The additional loading space will make us much less congested during peak loading and unloading times,” said Einerson. “Even better, trucks can get loaded and drive directly onto Highway 23 to start their transit.”
