ConGlobal Industries is moving its Portland operations to a new facility located on property leased from the Port. The new facility, located in Rivergate Industrial District at 9639 North Rivergate Boulevard, will be fully operational by mid-May. The company is North America’s largest full-service supplier to the intermodal industry, providing depot services, equipment sales and transportation services.
The new ConGlobal Portland facility sits on a paved and ideally suited parcel of land that is approximately two miles from the Portland marine terminals. Additionally, ConGlobal will have access to a secure overflow property to accommodate any additional storage requirements. The layout of the new facility allows ConGlobal Portland to be more efficient in depot operations, gate turn times, equipment stacking and handling.
Being closer to the Port, ConGlobal expects its customers will experience savings in drayage costs from the terminal to the new ConGlobal Portland facility. “I am very excited about this announcement. It concludes a year-long effort to secure the ideal site in Portland for a container depot”, commented Mike Baldwin, President and CEO of ConGlobal Industries. “It also underscores our long-term commitment not only to the Port of Portland but also to the container depot business.”
“The Port of Portland is thrilled to have ConGlobal Industries relocate their depot operations to port property,” said Willie Wilcoxen, Business Development Manager for the Port of Portland. “ConGlobal will complement the Port’s impressive list of tenants that provide global warehousing, logistics and freight-forwarding services, making the Port of Portland a vital import and export location for the Pacific Northwest.”
