Logistics Buddy, a privately-owned, full-service, third-party logistics company based in Sioux Falls, S.D., joined forces with The Fruit Club to construct a $70 million, 600,000-square-foot temperature-controlled warehouse in Foundation Park.

The new state-of-the-art facility will be open to accommodate customers’ needs 24/7.

“A development such as Logistics Buddy is a multi-tiered financial project requiring participation from owners, investors and the state,” says Scott Kear, chief executive officer of Logistics Buddy. “Our company has decided to make this investment in South Dakota because it is a very business-friendly state.”

The Fruit Club, also based in Sioux Falls, S.D., brings fresh fruit from the orchard directly to families year-round. With 25 employees, the company services over 100 cities in 10 states.
