3PL Worldwide Announces 160,000 Square Foot Fulfillment Warehouse in California

3PL is increasing its West Coast operations to include a 160,000-square-foot, 34 loading dock warehouse in Pico Rivera, CA.

Fulfillment specialists undertake major West Coast expansion to increase bi-coastal capabilities.

[Milford, Conn., Apr. 24, 2009] – Clyde Mount, president of 3PL Worldwide, announced today that the third party logistics provider is increasing its West Coast operations to include a 160,000 square foot warehouse in Pico Rivera, CA. The new warehouse is a significant step up from the company’s prior California facility and is a complement to 3PL Worldwide’s 150,000 square foot warehouse in Milford, CT. Together the two facilities give 3PL Worldwide complete bi-coastal coverage to service direct response, e-commerce, and catalog marketers.

According to Mount, “3PL Worldwide is extremely excited to increase our presence on the West Coast. A larger footprint in California will translate into considerable savings on cost of goods landed, shipping and handling, and faster delivery for our clients. It also means that our Western and Midwestern clients will have closer proximity to our warehouse, which cuts down on their travel time.”

The new 3PL Worldwide warehouse is located just 30 minutes from the Port of Long Beach, CA, one the West Coast’s most active ports. The Class A space with 34 loading docks is fully alarmed and sprinkler protected. 3PL Worldwide is staffing the facility with an onsite Client Services team, who will work in tandem with 3PL’s Client Services group headquartered in Connecticut.

By having warehouses near major ports on each coast, 3PL Worldwide will be getting product into the distribution stream faster. The expansion brings a new strategic location into the mix for clients; in particular, the California warehouse will be set up as a central EDI retail distribution point for goods coming in from Asia.

Unifying the two locations is 3PL Worldwide’s inventory management system and customer call center. Randy Pulling, VP Business Development, notes, “The east and west warehouse locations are fully integrated on 3PL Worldwide’s current operating systems, which makes it easy to allocate product between the two facilities and for order management. One system makes fulfillment much more efficient and cost effective.” Direct-to-consumer and multichannel marketers will not have to worry about gauging when to reorder product. 3PL Worldwide’s proprietary real-time online reporting system, Mission Control, automatically generates emails notifying clients when inventory gets down to predetermined reorder levels. In addition to providing full inventory management reports, Mission Control also generates a complete suite of financial reports so that clients can make fully informed decisions about their campaigns.

In celebration of the mid-May opening of the expanded West Coast warehouse, 3PL Worldwide is offering clients new to the company free set-up with no minimum on contracts signed between now and June 30, 2009, using the California location as the primary distribution point. Mount explains, “Servicing direct response and catalog marketers, we know the power of offers first-hand. 3PL Worldwide is confident that clients will quickly recognize the value of state of the art technologies combined with super convenient location and experienced management. It’s how we live up to our tagline, ‘Creating happy customers one order at a time.’”
