Newly expanded - Welcome to Woodland Chicago

In response to the ever-increasing switch to transload services and related surge in demand for strategically located warehousing, we’re delighted to launch our newly updated and expanded warehouse and fulfillment offering in Chicago, USA. 

Ideally located to serve the midwest and deliver effective omnichannel supply chain management solutions, our Chicago facility also offers space for the significant container transloading activity moving further inland as a result of congestion and significant space shortage at ports. As vessels are diverted from the West Coast to avoid delays, southeast US ports are now feeling the pressure of an increase in imports, with demand for space inland expected to increase over the summer months. 

Transloading and warehousing like LTL has become a growing solution to recent supply chain congestion issues as it frees up trailers and containers to reload and eases pressures on ports struggling with labor shortages and lack of space. Customers in turn have been able to reduce cost and delays to their supply chain, making use of our effective and streamlined eCommerce solutions through strategically located hubs across the USA.

As one of the world’s most connected cities due to its transport infrastructure, with more than 30% of US population a 1-day truck drive away from Chicago which leads the nation in truck transport employment, our increased warehouse and eCommerce fulfillment network in Illinois creates significant opportunity for our clients to cut time and cost.
