Logistics company to open Berkeley County facility

COLUMBIA, SC (WCSC) - The South Carolina Department of Commerce and the South Carolina State Ports Authority announced Monday that Regal Logistics, a third party logistics company, will establish its new distribution center in Berkeley County. The multi-million dollar investment is expected to generate 30 new full-time jobs, and 50 to 100 seasonal jobs.

"Regal's expansion in Charleston is in direct response to manufacturers, importers and exporters' demand for an ideal east coast ship point to satisfy major retailers like Walmart," said Regal Logistics Vice President Garry Neeves. "We're confident that Regal's facility will attract new business to the area in the form of manufacturers and importers shipping product through the Port of Charleston for distribution to major retailers in the East."

Regal Logistics' new distribution center in Berkeley County at 1980 Technology Road in a 351,000-square-foot existing building is open for business and designed for high-volume, quick-turnaround, retail-compliant shipping.

Hiring for warehousing and administrative position swill begin in 2011.
