North America Duty Free’s receiving and distribution facility — International Warehouse Services (IWS) located at Port Everglades in Florida – broke ground this week for a new 300,000 sq ft International Logistics Center (ILC) that will contain warehouse, refrigerated warehouse, office space and cross-docking facilities.

NADF CEO Steve Fortgang tells TMI that the new ILC is scheduled to open in summer 2020. The current Port Everglades facility has handled the NADF for nearly 40 years, says Fortgang. The new center is a partnership between the Port and CenterPoint Properties and will be located in Foreign-Trade Zone No. 25.
