In the past 10 years, the growth of food processing and CPG manufacturing within a 150-mile radius of Atlanta has accelerated as more processors and manufacturers discover the advantages offered within this radius. With the 2nd busiest container port on the east coast, a confluence of interstate highways radiating through Atlanta, a pro-growth strategy in both state and local governments, and an educated and growing work force, businesses looking to expand production or relocating existing production are coming to or near north Georgia.
In order to service those plants with either or both inbound raw materials and packaging or outbound finished products, Colonial has invested in both tractors and trailers to move products to/from plants to their next stop in the supply chain. Many processors and manufacturers have taken advantage of Colonial’s plant support services to bring raw materials to the plant to return with finished products to Atlanta Bonded Warehouse for cross-dock, intermediate storage, co-packaging, or order selection. These finished orders are then loaded on Colonial trailers. Colonial has the drivers, the assets, and the expertise to coordinate these moves and services to keep your plants running efficiently and helping you focus on production and not coordinating logistics.
