Aug 31, 2016: Morrison Express, a leading, global logistics, transportation and supply chain management provider, launched a new service at the cargo-only Rickenbacker International Airport (LCK) in Lockbourne, Ohio.
The LCK facility which is located 10 miles from downtown Columbus, serves as a central hub for many of fashion, electronics, and retail’s biggest names.
LCK’s strategic location allows for more timely and cost-effective distribution and is able to reach over 70 percent of the US and Canadian population within 2 days via standard LTL truck service.
“Rickenbacker is an optimal distribution location for many global brands, and our ability to service their needs was a driving factor in partnering with the CFS facility there,” said Tony Medeiros, vice president and general manager of the Americas for Morrison Express.
“This 90,000 square feet container freight station, combined with our customised solutions, delivers a competitive advantage for our clients’ importing and exporting needs,” Medeiros added.
Morrison Express airline partners Cathay Pacific, Emirates, and Cargolux are now making multiple 100-tonne flights per week directly in and out of Rickenbacker International Airport, bypassing traditional gateways such as New York or Chicago.
