A new TAGG Logistics facility is opening next to Lambert-St. Louis International Airport, providing a boost to the airport’s campaign to increase freight traffic.
TAGG Logistics is a third-party distribution and logistics specialist for mid-sized healthcare and consumer products manufacturers.
The new logistics center replaces TAGG’s three current sites around St. Louis, adding 35 percent to its capacity. It will feature bulk distribution space, multiple kitting and assembly lines and a high-volume order-picking system.
“Our new facility will be one of the most advanced third-party logistics centers in the Midwest,” Tod Yazdi, TAGG principal, said. “We strongly promote St. Louis and the Midwest as an ideal location for distribution.”
About 60 percent of TAGG’s freight flows are international.
“We are delighted that TAGG is relocating within the airport logistics community and investing so heavily in its future development here,” David Lancaster, Lambert cargo development director, said. “It’s a vote of confidence in St. Louis and its airport as an ideal location for domestic and international logistics.”
