GPR Logistics acquires East Coast facilities and operations of The Gilbert Company

GPR Logistics (GPR) has announced the acquisition of the East Coast facilities and operations of The Gilbert Company from Maersk Inc., the US land-based component of container shipping company, Maersk Line.

GPR now owns The Gilbert Company’s East Coast facilities and operations, as well as the rights to The Gilbert Company name and website.

The Gilbert Company has been an established warehouse, distribution and transportation services provider to the retail industry for more than 25 years. The company serves customers nationwide across three market segments — big-box, specialty apparel retailers, and their vendors — out of a 300,000 sq ft multi-client warehouse located in Keasbey, New Jersey. The 87 dock-door facility sits on 20 acres and features 280,000 sq ft of warehouse and distribution space and 20,000 sq ft of office space.

"Across the board, shippers are challenged by supply chains that are growing longer and more complex, and capacity that’s only going to get tighter," said Gregg Prisco, president and CEO of The Gilbert Company.

"The Gilbert Company differentiates itself from its competitors by maintaining a customer-centric business model. Our mission is to offer more than just the transportation and warehousing services they need — but the attention and superior service required to get product on store shelves, on-time, every time. We’re excited to work together again to use our breadth of relevant expertise and get back to doing what we’ve done so well in the past — serve all aspects of the retail market," added Prisco.
