Ontario, Canada-based forestry equipment manufacturer Woodland Mills has added a distribution center in Houston, Tx.
The warehouse joins existing warehouses in Portland, Or.; Buffalo, N.Y.; and Canada to give the company 100,000 sq. ft. of operating space in North America.
The new Houston location will allow Woodland Mills to utilize Port Houston, giving the company a third port of entry in the U.S. This diversity will help enhance shipping efficiency and mitigate the impacts of elevated port congestion. Regional consumers will no longer have to wait for their orders to ship from the Oregon or New York locations.
“You hear about the price of gas, the price of diesel, and all the surcharges,” said co-founder Neil Bramley. “That was our big driver—not wanting to charge the customer more freight to do the same thing.”
