Logistics Park Chicago

As you know, in our continuing effort to support the growth at Logistics Park Chicago, we have taken a number of steps to expand capacity and improve velocity, including a major yard expansion.

To ensure you achieve the full benefit of the expansion, we strive to minimize unnecessary dwell at the facility. Due to holiday impact we are experiencing higher than normal dwell in eastbound loaded containers. We are asking for your immediate assistance by removing these containers from the facility on a timely basis.
Fluidity can also be improved when distribution center hours are expanded to accept containers on a 24-hour basis, seven days a week.

By working together, we are confident that unnecessary dwell can be reduced, avoiding the need to alter the current storage policy at LPC. We will continue to monitor the situation and provide you with timely updates.

If you have any questions, please send an email to
