RLS Logistics, a leading temperature-controlled third-party logistics (3PL) provider, announced today that it is increasing its Direct-to-Consumer (D2C) fulfillment capabilities to keep up with growing demand. The plan includes renovating two current fulfillment centers, while the company also considers acquiring a new location in the Midwest. The expansion will support the company’s existing client base, as well as, their goal of being the fulfillment partner of choice for new and growing D2C companies and retail operations.
“Market trends, such as the growth of Direct-to-Consumer brands, have led to more and more companies to look to partner with a quality 3PL provider,” said Anthony M. Leo, RLS President/CEO, Warehousing Group. “By outsourcing packaging and fulfillment operations to RLS, companies of all sizes can avoid huge capital investments in facilities and equipment, ship products faster, and reduce freight costs; while not compromising on product quality.”
As part of the current expansion program, RLS recently completed renovations to their existing Salt Lake City, Utah logistics center which will allow the facility to accommodate additional fulfillment lines. According to Ken Johnson, Executive Vice President, Warehousing Group, “With the upgrades in Salt Lake City, we can double capacity at this location which provides forward distribution for products shipped throughout the West.”
“With Phase One of the project complete, we are beginning similar renovations to our East Coast logistics center in Newfield, New Jersey, which will more than double its capacity as well,” Johnson continued. “As part of the renovations, we are adding a new dry warehouse location nearby in Vineland, New Jersey which will handle packaging and other ambient items currently housed in Newfield.”
“We expect this second phase to be completed and operational in the first quarter of 2020. At the same time, we are evaluating potential locations to establish a D2C fulfillment center in the Midwest which will solidify our ability to provide two-day ground transportation to all 48 contiguous states.”
