CHARLOTTE, N.C. (Jan. 29, 2015) — American Tire Distributors Holdings Inc. (ATD) is adding a second distribution center in the Baltimore area in order to increase its ability to service customers on that side of the city's metropolitan area.
ATD said it has agreed to lease a 138,000-sq.-ft. warehouse in White Marsh, Md., an unincorporated community that straddles I-95 northeast of Baltimore.
The wholesaler said it expects to start operations by this summer at the warehouse, which features 28-foot ceiling heights, 26 rear loading docks and two drive-in doors. Chesapeake Real Estate Group L.L.C. is developing the project in the White Marsh Business Park.
The new location will complement ATD's existing distribution center in Halethorpe, Md., southwest of Baltimore near I-95 and I-695, the company said, noting it is similar in size to the White March facility.
