DALLAS – E&A TransPros Inc., an Illinois-based logistics firm, has landed in 19,643 sf of industrial space, expanding at a new location closer to Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport.
The firm is settling into Prologis Inc.'s' Hanover 4 at 801 Hanover Dr. in Grapevine. E&A has relocated from Carrollton to a project that's less than four miles from the airport's northern entrance.
"Being close to the airport was crucial for E&A. There weren't a lot of options that met our client's criteria," says Joe Santaularia, first vice president of Dallas-based Bradford Commercial Real Estate Services. He and Brock Wilson, senior vice president and managing partner, represented the tenant in their industrial space search.
E&A had been searching the DFW Airport Industrial submarket for the past year, seeking distribution center space with ample dock doors. The pandemic sidelined the hunt until a few months ago.
"We started looking again and before long we came across this vacancy," Santaularia says. "The airport submarket is really tight for spaces below 70,000 sf."
E&A signed a long-term lease and was quickly up and running at its new location. The 151,335-sf building is one of three in the Prologis project, situated close to the TX 114-121 junction. Gil Stroube of Lincoln Property Co. represented the landlord.
