The Allen Group to Develop a Build-to-Suit Container Yard at Dallas Logistics Hub
Bridge Terminal Transport Selects DLH for Relocation of a New Container Yard Facility
DALLAS, Texas, (Nov. 25, 2008) — The Allen Group, developers of the Dallas Logistics Hub (DLH), a 6,000-acre multi-modal logistics park in Southern Dallas County, announced today an execution of a lease with Bridge Terminal Transport (BTT), one of the largest marine container haulers covering all major port locations and inland rail sites within the United States. BTT is a market leader in worldwide container services, agency, logistics and terminal activities.
The company will relocate their container yard operations from an existing facility near the Love Field Airport area to a site at DLH that falls within the City of Hutchins. With close proximity to Union Pacific’s Dallas Intermodal Terminal (DIT) and Interstate 45, the container yard will store inbound and outbound containers that transfer through DIT, as well as chassis and trailers for customers.
“We are pleased to work with Bridge Terminal Transport to provide them with a perfect location for its Dallas container yard facility,” said Daniel J. McAuliffe, President of The Allen Group’s Texas operations. “This will be the first storage facility within the Dallas Logistics Hub that will allow accessible integration between the DIT and distribution customers in and around the logistics park.”
Construction is currently underway and expected to be fully operation by February 2009. The project will also create 15 full-time jobs. BTT was represented in the real estate transaction by Bob Hagewood of Stream Realty Partners, LP.
