RLS Logistics has officially inaugurated the expansion of its warehouse in Newfield, New Jersey. The higher capacity 3PL facility offers shippers of frozen and refrigerated food active in East Coast USA markets greater flexibility in storage and distribution. Additionally, clients are afforded access to RLS’ temperature-controlled freight brokerage and shipping services, which include Walmart pool consolidation and LTL consolidation programs.

“This development provides growth opportunities not only in our cold storage business, but also in our direct-to-consumer fulfillment and cross docking warehouse business units,” said Russell Leo, the Glassboro, NJ-headquartered company’s chief executive officer.

“Our Newfield facility is a busy campus,” stated John Gaudet, vice president of business development. “Adding cold storage warehouse capacity here has been well received by current and new customers. We are well on our way to filling the space and moving new customers into our network.”

Established in 1968, RLS Logistics has been owned and managed by the Leo family for 55 years and has grown into a leading integrated cold chain 3PL. Founder Rosario Leo immigrated from Italy to the United States with his family in search of the American Dream, which started in the mushroom growing business. After twenty years, he pivoted to the cold storage warehousing sector, beginning the transition from R. Leo and Son Mushroom Farm to RLS Logistics.

From the first cold storage warehouse built in 1988, RLS has since expanded to six states across the USA. It operates ten facilities and offices, and has more than 400 employees on the payroll.
