48forty and Relogistics Services Expand Operations in Douglas, Georgia
Douglas, GA - 48forty Solutions (48forty), a leading national provider of recycled pallets and pallet management services, alongside its sister company Relogistics Services (Relogistics), one of the nation's leading pallet and container management companies, today announced that both divisions have expanded their operations in Douglas, GA.
This location is the company's first-ever combined greenfield location for both recycling and reverse logistics services. The two businesses will operate in a 70,000 SF facility; 40,000 SF will be dedicated to the pallet recycling division and 30,000 SF to the reverse logistics center, as part of the pallet and container management division.
The combined facility was designed to meet the complex needs of our customers' ever-growing supply chains, allowing them to use their warehouse space for product movement instead of pallets and other packaging. The joint location also eliminates transportation between the two operations, benefitting the customer from a cost and efficiency perspective, and has a positive environmental impact. The location of the joint facility is 534 Thompson Dr., Douglas, GA 31535.
Mike Hachtman, 48forty Solutions CEO, said: "This was a strategic decision to better serve our customers in ways that separate facilities could not. We will be able to handle more volume, have greater capacity for product, room for expansion and automation, and create hiring opportunities for people in the Douglas, GA, area. In addition to these opportunities, having one facility reduces our carbon emissions and aligns with 48forty Solutions' commitment to the environment, which we value greatly."
