    Why Choose a Warehouse and Distribution Center in Columbia?

    As South Carolina’s capital city, Columbia is full of potential for your business. From its proximity to critical ports and railways to its financial incentives, here’s what makes the city a top choice for warehousing and 3PL distribution.

    Nestled in the center of South Carolina, Columbia is an ideal midpoint between the major markets of New York City and Miami. It’s only about two days from other key cities, including Detroit and Chicago.

    The city is less than two hours away from the seaside Port of Charleston — one of the world’s most productive ports. Charleston’s port offers access to six separate marine terminals with deep-sea capabilities that average 36 crate moves each hour. Inland Port Greer is only 90 minutes away. Rail-connected Inland Port Dillon is also nearby.

    Columbia is a few hours away from Georgia’s ports as well, including the Port of Savannah and the Port of Brunswick, along with North Carolina’s coastal Port of Wilmington.

    Columbia is one of the United States’ top five cities for highway connectivity, complete with 1,000 miles spanning several interstates across South Carolina. The ease of connection continues from there. You’ll also benefit from speedy shipments via 2,300 miles of rail transport that includes two Class I lines and several independent operations.

    The Columbia Metropolitan Airport is South Carolina’s largest cargo airport. We’re also positioned an hour and a half from Charlotte Douglas International Airport, the country’s sixth-busiest. The Hartfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport — the busiest airport in the world — is less than four hours away.

    United States Foreign-Trade Zones (FTZs), which house specialized customs processes for domestic and global export entry, are a highly valuable asset for distribution. South Carolina is the grantee for two FTZs — coastal FTZ 21 and upstate FTZ 38.

    Operating near these FTZs means you benefit from:

    • Customs duty exemptions or payment deferments for qualifying shipments and re-exports.
    • Inverted tariffs and reduction in duty costs.
    • Simplified customs processes.
    • More accurate and organized inventory management.
    • A centralized location for all domestic and international goods.

    Your Columbia warehouse goods will benefit from fewer taxes than they would in other locations, as South Carolina does not impose tax on inventory. You can reallocate the savings toward other areas of your operations, such as expanding your enterprise’s reach.

    Because South Carolina doesn’t have a state property tax or local income tax, we’re able to price our services competitively — translating to better profits for you.

    What to Expect From Our 3PL Services

    Here’s what you can expect when you partner with Crown LSP Group for your 3PL needs:

    • Freight management and distribution: We offer full-truckload and less-than-truckload shipping to get your goods where they need to be without delay. Our freight management and brokering services help you offer faster arrival times with less product handling and more intuitive inventory levels.
