Sysco Plans Warehouse Expansion in Milwaukee, Wisconsin
MILWAUKEE, WI - A significant addition to Sysco’s operations is undergoing review. The distributor hopes to nearly double the size of its Jackson, Wisconsin, warehouse to 660,000 square feet.
According to plans filed, Sysco hopes to do the following: “improve staging for inbound trucks with on-site dual lane entry driveway; proposed building expansion for ambient, cool, and freezer warehouse and docks of approximately 300,000 square feet; supporting sitework development for truck staging and maneuvering.”
A report from BizTimes initially noted that Sysco hopes to double the size of the space. GMToday reported that the application included that the expansion would increase the truck operations and traffic for the site, though the building itself screens the on-site dock and truck operations from the roadway.
At this time, specific information on the Sysco expansion, such as building specifications, details on sitework, and timelines, are not included at the concept plan level.
We all know how important warehouse and facility space are in today’s supply chain landscape. Additional space for trucking operations also positions the foodservice distributor to better serve its customers.
