Nike Opens Largest Distribution Center In Tennessee
Nike recently opened the doors on its largest distribution center in Memphis, Tennessee.
The brand's North America Logistics Campus is 2.8 million sq. ft., state-of-the-art facility boasting 33 miles of conveyor belt, 73 outbound doors, and 96 receiving spurs.
The center serves as a shipping hub for Nike and Jordan Brand footwear, apparel, and equipment for individual consumers, wholesale customers and the brand's own retail channels.
"Nike's focus on the consumer is relentless. We built NALC-Memphis to enhance our ability to provide our consumers what they want: premium Nike products delivered quickly and efficiently," said Nike’s Chief Operating Officer, Eric Sprunk. "When we deliver like this for our consumers, we grow and expand our business. Through successful partnerships with state and local government, we’ve built a premier logistics center that meets the increasing demands of our consumers and our wholesale customers, while also ensuring that the facility meets our high standards for sustainability. By establishing NALC-Memphis, we’re setting a new standard for Nike."
Nike's very first distribution center opened in Memphis back in 1982.
