Shippers Warehouse of Georgia New DCA Member in Atlanta

SmartWay(SM) Transport Partner to Continue Tradition of Award Winning Service

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwire - September 15, 2009) - Shippers Warehouse of Georgia (SWG), has assumed leadership of the Atlanta region for Distribution Centers of America (DCA).

Part of The Shippers Group based in Dallas, Texas, SWG is pledged to continue the tradition of excellence in regional service, and innovate to further improve environmental efficiency. SWG recently joined the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)'s collaboration with the freight industry as a SmartWay(SM) Transport Partner, committed to measurably increase energy efficiency in its freight operations, while reducing greenhouse gases and air pollution.

Having absorbed the Southern Bonded Company in 2005, and expanded to an additional Rome, GA facility in March 2009, SWG now expertly deploys the resources of more than 500,000 sq ft of food grade warehouse and packaging facilities in Jonesboro as well as their non-food, chemical, reverse logistics and cross-dock services to serve a wide swathe of markets and customers.

For example, in July, a global snack foods leader announced Shippers Warehouse of Georgia as a major contributor to the success of their Contract Packaging Quality Journey, highlighting SWG's status as one of the largest co-packaging operations in the US. Earlier this year, Suzuki contracted with SWG for 60,000 sf of storage and distribution, while Kodak and Sirius Radio are customers of SWG's outsourced Reverse Logistics services.
