NFI announced that it had broken ground on a new build-to-suit distribution center in New Jersey for retailer Five Below.
The million square foot facility is being built in Oldmans Township, N.J. and will replace retailer Five Below’s current 420,000 square foot distribution center in New Castle, Del. Construction is scheduled for completion in summer of 2015.
“NFI is excited to collaborate with Five Below to develop an optimized solution and leverage supply chain efficiencies,” said Jeff Brown, NFI president.
The facility will support the future growth and expansion of Five Below, who sells merchandise for young adults. It features energy-efficient warehouse space, Class A concrete tilt-wall construction, cross-dock load configuration and an ESFT fire sprinkler system.
NFI is a supply chain solutions provider based in Cherry Hill, N.J. with a fleet of over 2,000 tractors and 8,200 trailers. NFI employs more than 2,500 company drivers and 250 owner operators.
