Duluth opens Clure terminal warehouse

The warehouse expands the existing 88,000 sq ft (8,175.5 sq m) East Warehouse Annex, which opened in 2002, and brings the total warehousing capacity for Duluth Cargo Connect to over 500,000 sq ft (46,451.5 sq m). 

The construction of the warehouse is part of a multifaceted USD20.3 million project at the Clure terminal, which also includes 850 linear ft of dock wall reconstruction for two of the facility’s ship berths. Dock wall reconstruction is scheduled to begin in the spring of 2024.

“The Clure Terminal serves as our region’s multimodal logistics hub and general cargo terminal, so it plays a critical role in supporting our port and regional industry,” said Deb DeLuca, executive director of the Duluth Seaway Port Authority. “Warehousing is an important component of what we provide at the terminal, allowing cargo to flow in and out efficiently to suit customers’ supply chain needs.”

Jonathan Lamb, president of Duluth Cargo Connect, added: “Warehousing capacity is in very high demand nationwide, and that’s certainly true here in Duluth-Superior as well. This warehouse expansion allows us to meet more of that demand and create more flexible supply chain solutions for our customers.”
