Madison, Illinois based Lanter Delivery Services has opened a new distribution warehouse at 4014 Nash Road in Cape Girardeau. Tom Kelsey, commercial broker with Lorimont Place, Ltd. handled the recent transaction for the cross-dock type warehouse facility. The building contains multiple dock doors for quickly processing daily incoming and outgoing freight along with an office for their Southeast Missouri operations.

The company has a unique specialty daily distribution parts delivery service for agricultural, OEM automotive, trucking, automotive aftermarket, field technician, and industrial customers. The company averages over 8,000 emergency critical parts and daily stock order deliveries every day in the areas they serve. Kelsey said the company maintains 93 similar cross-dock type warehouses throughout the country. The company is now operational in the dock facility on Nash Road, which formerly was used for many years by ABF Freight Lines.
