Arrowpac Inc., a freight forwarding company which services the Caribbean, will be relocating to an available building at 85 Twin Rivers Drive, between Lake Drive and Milford Road in East Windsor. The approximately 77,000 square foot building will be used as a warehouse distribution center with an accompanying office and storage space.
Arrowpac, which has been in operation since 1980, is relocating their distribution center from Jersey City to the 6.6 acre property in East Windsor, to be closer to the Philadelphia ports. The company, which currently has approximately 100 employees total, will start their East Windsor operations with 7 employees, then add approximately 12 employees to complete the transition.
“Arrowpac is a highly successful company with a long history of shipping products in the retail, pharmaceutical and manufacturing industries,” Mayor Janice Mironov said. “East Windsor’s superior location is the perfect resolution to Arrowpac’s need to operate a distribution center between the company’s headquarters in Secaucus and their shipping port in Philadelphia. Arrowpac’s decision to relocate their operations to the Twin Rivers Drive location reaffirms East Windsor’s attractiveness to a growing number of successful companies seeking an exemplary strategic location to grow their business.”
Arrowpac, Inc. is the leading freight forwarder offering less than truckload (LTL) shipping and truckload ocean and air door-to-door service between the Continental U.S, Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic and the Caribbean Islands. Over the past three decades the company has become the most reliable and dependable carrier servicing Puerto Rico and the Caribbean. Their proven track record has secured Arrowpac as the primary carrier for a long list of Fortune 500 and Fortune 100 companies operating in the Caribbean. Since 1996, Arrowpac has been named by Caribbean Business Magazine as the number one volume freight forwarder servicing Puerto Rico.
“Arrowpac has found the perfect home for our distribution center in East Windsor," company president Walter Kenney said. "We look forward to growing our operations here and partnering with the Township in continuing to grow the very vibrant local business community.”
