Dollar General to Upgrade South Carolina DC


Dollar General has announced an initiative to install automation in a number of distribution centers starting with a location in Jonesville close to the Port of Charleston Inland facility in Greer, SC.


This location has been expanded to 1.35 million square feet with the incremental 250,000 square foot addition costing $45 million. Automation will expedite distribution of goods to more than 1,000 stores in the Southeast region including 650 in South Carolina.


Dollar General will extend the upgrade program to other company-owned distribution centers to increase efficiency and to reduce headcount.  The company truck fleet will be expanded to 2,000 trailers by the end of 2023.  Investment in warehousing and logistics should alleviate problems that have detracted from profitability during the current fiscal year.
