Jafza Begins Master Plan for Orangeburg County Logistics Park

By

By Daily Journal Staff

Jafza South Carolina LLC has hired a Kansas City-based firm to help create a master plan for its 1,300-acre logistics and distribution hub in Orangeburg County.

TranSystems Corp., which has offices in Charleston in Greenville, will assess market potential to identify tenants to be located at the site and determine services the hub must provide. The company will examine origin and destination patterns of existing and projected freight flows and commodity movements by cargo type and market sector throughout the Southeastern United States.

TranSystems will partner on the project with several South Carolina firms, including Seamon Whiteside & Associates, Atlantic South Consulting and Davis & Floyd.

“TranSystems is an industry leader in global supply chain consulting and the design of large scale intermodal terminals and distribution centers,” said Charles Heath, managing director of Jafza South Carolina. “We are projecting that with our business model and the continued growth of international trade, the Jafza Logistics and Distribution Park will create thousands of jobs and attract substantial private investment in manufacturing, warehousing and distribution facilities over the next two decades.”

Jafza’s planned development is along the Interstate 95 and Interstate 26 corridors, near CSX and Norfolk Southern rail lines.
