The Colliers industrial experts in Charleston have signed on as consultants for the largest independent terminal operator in North America

Colliers | South Carolina brokers Mark Erickson, SIOR, Matt Pickard and Chloe Heiligenstein have expanded their supply chain and logistics services by signing on as consultants for Kinder Morgan. Kinder Morgan is the largest independent terminal operator in America with locations nationwide.

“We are thrilled to be partnering with Kinder Morgan,” said Mark Erickson, Vice President with Colliers | South Carolina. “Early on, we realized Kinder Morgan needed to be connected to our brokerage network. Kinder Morgan’s Charleston location provides a variety of solutions for commercial clients, so we wanted to make brokers aware of what this property has to offer. They are looking for potential customers from around the world who can utilize their services and our large international network allows us to bring new opportunities their way.”

The Kinder Morgan terminal in Charleston offers a facility for importing or exporting dry or liquid bulk products and raw materials. They are also offering new build-to-suit infrastructure including additional liquid storage tanks, warehousing, trans-loading facilities and more.

“Kinder Morgan is a unique client when it comes to commercial real estate,” said Matt Pickard, Brokerage Associate with Colliers | South Carolina. “But the evolution of the shipping and bulk terminal market requires the services of a commercial broker, and we look forward to aiding in the expansion of supply chain in South Carolina.”

“When we first met with the Colliers team, we were unsure what to expect,” said Kevin Holmquest from Kinder Morgan. “We quickly came to realize their knowledge, international reach and established relationships in the industry would be a tremendous complement to our own marketing strategy. We look forward to growing our partnership with their industrial team.”

Erickson, Pickard and Heiligenstein are members of the Colliers industrial brokerage team, specializing in the representation of clients purchasing, selling and leasing of industrial-related assets.
