Santa Fe Springs, Calif. Third-party logistics and supply chain management provider Weber Distribution said Tuesday it has signed a multi-year contract with North Bergen, N.J.-based The Vitamin Shoppe to warehouse and distribute top-volume items throughout the Western United States.
Weber currently handles weekly shipments of vitamins and nutritional supplements to replenish approximately 100 Vitamin Shoppe stores located throughout the entire Western region, including Hawaii. Weber said it is performing a high-volume pick-and-pack operation, which is extremely time sensitive on adherence to expiration dates.
The entire process is radio-frequency based in order to provide real-time access to the latest fulfillment activities and reporting through Weber’s web portal.
“We selected Weber because of their prominent position as a regional distribution and fulfillment provider in the Western United States,” said Rich Tannenbaum, VP supply chain for The Vitamin Shoppe. “They have ample capacity to handle The Vitamin Shoppe’s current and future business requirements as the company grows and expands, and they have a highly experienced management team who is familiar with The Vitamin Shoppe operations and our pick and pack requirements.”
Vitamin Shoppe operates more than 450 retail stores throughout the United States.
