Frontier Logistics is expanding its existing operations in Charleston County with the recent purchase of 26 acres at the former Navy base in North Charleston. The company's $35.5 million investment is expected to create an additional 34 jobs.

With operations in South Carolina and Texas, Frontier Logistics is a provider of diverse and complete supply chain management services and solutions to a wide range of industries. The company offers a variety of services to meet its customers' needs, including warehousing, packaging, and transportation.

Frontier Logistics will be constructing a 400,000-square-foot, rail-served warehousing facility to support the transloading of plastic pellets for export through the Port of Charleston. Rail service will be provided by Palmetto Railways, providing connections to both CSX and Norfolk Southern.

"Charleston has significant logistical advantages that reach the entire world market, enough so that it compels us to make Charleston a comprehensive launching pad for future export/import and domestic logistics needs," says CEO George Cook. "We believe in the strong and effective leadership that has been shown to us by both the South Carolina Ports Authority and Palmetto Railways. We are very excited to get the new Charleston facility up and running in short order and become an even larger contributor and good neighbor in the greater Charleston community."
