C.H. Robinson will expand its business operations in Chicago by signing a seven-year lease for a 235,000-square-foot commercial office building and warehouse at 333 Howard Avenue in Des Plaines. Approximately 150 employees will be based at the new facility, which will open its doors in early 2016.
“Chicago is one of the most important markets in our global shipping network, thanks to its connectivity to Class I rail, ocean shipping, truck transportation and one of the world’s leading airports,” said Mike Short, president of Global Forwarding, C.H. Robinson. “This move will enable our customers to have better access to these transportation options, and will position our company to build on our decade of rapid expansion in Chicago.”
