An international logistics company has signed on as the anchor tenant for a new distribution facility that will be built in a North Charleston industrial park, according to Childress Klein Properties and real estate investment firm Jamestown.

JAS Forwarding USA will lease 78,000 square feet at Crosspoint I, a built-to-suit building with an additional 104,000 square feet of spec industrial space available in 2013.

The company, a subsidiary of JAS Forwarding Worldwide, will relocate from existing Charleston-area facilities. JAS Forwarding’s Charleston branch is currently located in Ladson, on Benchmark Drive.

Crosspoint 1 is part of a 305-acre, mixed-use industrial development site within Palmetto Commerce Park.
