A leader in logistical services across the nation announced it will build its new facility in Berkeley County. Los Angeles-based Moulton Logistics Management is building a new facility in Berkeley County that is expected to bring in about 500 news jobs within the next five years.
This week’s announcement was made by the South Carolina Department of Commerce, Berkeley County and the South Carolina State Ports Authority. The new facility will be a $25 million investment. Moulton decided to put the new distribution center near Charleston due to the easy access the city has to markets in Europe and across the Atlantic Ocean. Governor Mark Sanford says, “Moulton’s decision to make a substantial investment of capital and jobs is a telling sign that we’re making real progress to increase our state’s competitive advantage.”
