ICAT Logistics breaks ground for building
ICAT Logistics Inc. broke ground last month for its 20,646- square-foot building on Douglas Legum Drive in Elkridge. The company, near Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport, provides expedited transportation and logistics services.
The company, which has outgrown its quarters, organizes and guarantees delivery of critical freight such as medical products, rollouts for retailers, hazardous and biological waste, trade-show booths and displays, airplane engines, helicopter blades, automotive parts and other items.
Critical freight is defined as material that must arrive at a certain place and time and is typically heavier than UPS or FedEx services carry, said the company's chief operating officer, Mark Debinski.
Lancelotta Real Estate and ICAT Logistics were partners in the development of the property, which is scheduled to be occupied by Dec. 15. An additional 10,323- square-feet on the first and second floors of the building will be available for lease for office space.
