Carlisle-area warehouse linked to Apple set to close

A Carlisle-area warehouse that has served as a destination for Apple products is slated to close in March, idling nearly 500 workers.

  • German company DB Schenker told state and local officials this week it plans to close the warehouse at 45 Logistics Drive in South Middletown Township.
  • In a statement, a company spokesperson cited the expiration of a customer contract as the reason.
  • “We want to express our deepest gratitude to our Carlisle team for their hard work, dedication, and contributions to the company, and we are committed to offering comprehensive support for the team during this transition,” the spokesperson said.

 

What customer: The company, the logistics division of German rail giant Deutsche Bahn, declined to say.

  • But a trail of web links indicates the warehouse was a place where people sent Apple products for returns or repairs.
  • Among the 478 people being laid off are 311 people listed as electronic device screening specialists, according to Schenker’s notice, filed under the federal Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification, or WARN, Act.
  • Another 46 are identified as electronic device warehousepersons.

 

What are the links: Several websites devoted to Apple customers cite 45 Logistics Drive as a place to send products for replacement or repair.

 

What’s next: The Logistics Drive warehouse is slated for “total closure” on or about March 10, according to Schenker.
