Dunavant Adds Fort Worth Warehouse
By Madeline Faber
Dunavant is expanding its distribution footprint with a new warehouse in Fort Worth, Texas.
The 148,000-square-foot, temperature-controlled space is in addition to the existing Dunavant Dallas container drayage terminal.
The warehouse at 900 Terminal Road in Fort Worth initially will be used for cotton storage. In addition to the commodities industry, Dunavant also distributes in the automotive aftermarket; chemical, food and beverage; paper and packaging; and retail segments.
“Additional warehousing services in Fort Worth will further enable us to provide dedicated services to our existing and potential customers alike,” said Richard McDuffie, COO of Memphis-based Dunavant. “We are eager to build on our success in the Fort Worth market as current services continue to grow in volume.”
Dean Bay, director of warehousing and distribution, will lead the new Texas warehouse.
