AIT Worldwide Logistics, Itasca, Ill., moved its Boston station and the 13 employees from East Boston to a new, larger location in Chelsea, Mass.

The new location is 30% larger than the previous site, and features more private offices and conference rooms­. However, the short move of just 1.5 miles means the station will remain centrally located for customers and strategically located in the business district, with easy access to Logan International Airport.

“As AIT continues to grow, the move to a larger, more modern space ensures we can sustainably expand and sets us up for future success,” says Ryan Carter, vice president Americas operations. “We’re pleased to have found a new, more modern home just across the Chelsea River, so we can continue to increase our operational capacity while providing uninterrupted, best-in-class service to our customers.”

“Expanding and improving the Boston office space is critical to our strategy in the northeast United States,” says Greg Weigel, executive vice president global operations. “With AIT's recent acquisitions, Boston is a lynchpin supporting both our transatlantic trade lane and our sector capabilities in aviation and life sciences. It’s also essential to upgrade our facilities in recognition of the significant contributions from AIT teammates. By creating an optimum working environment, both our teammates and our customers succeed.”

The new location also welcomed new station manager Michael Jeannotte.
