ARCHDALE, N.C. – Massood Logistics has expanded its warehouse and fulfillment network with the opening of the company’s new headquarters distribution facility in Archdale, N.C.
The new operation at 537 Archdale Rd. comprises 300,000 square feet of secure dedicated space. This location will serve as the central distribution hub for central North Carolina and the East Coast.
The new location is Massood’s fifth in North Carolina to serve the home furnishing industry and e-commerce marketers around the globe. Others include facilities in Greensboro, High Point, Eden and Winston-Salem. Those existing locations already totaled more than 1 million square feet of warehouse and distribution space, and the company has reciprocal agreements for warehousing to serve the West Coast.
The Archdale addition is part of the company’s long-term commitment to retailers and e-tailers.
“Today’s business environment is constantly changing, and we are determined to provide our customers with the tools they need to succeed in a crowded marketplace,” said CEO Edward Massood. “As always, our primary goal at Massood is providing timely freight shipping services, the careful handling of goods and the support of our industry, our retailers, our employees and our planet, just as we have for three generations.”
Massood Logistics was formed in 2010 but goes back more than 60 years. The original family business operated as MGM Transport and built a reputation for quality and service while transporting merchandise across the United States and Canada. Massood Logistics was the brainchild of Edward Massood but has been managed from its inception by his daughter, Vice President Tara Massood, who has spent her lifetime in and around the furniture transport industry as well as working in the family’s retail home furnishing stores.
“The world has changed. Today’s consumer wants it right and wants it right now,” she said. “It is our goal to make that happen.”
Massood Logistics offers a total package of third-party logistics services including furniture warehousing, secure storage, drop shipping, cross dock, order fulfillment, pick and pack, last-mile delivery and supply chain consulting.
