Gebruder Weiss, an international transport and logistics company with U.S. headquarters in Chicago, expanded its operations with a new warehouse location in California's premier logistics and distribution hub, the Inland Empire.
According to company officials, the new 100,000 square foot facility, located in Jurupa Valley, is twice the size of Gebruder Weiss' existing warehouse in Torrance, California. The expanded capacity will provide both storage and fulfillment solutions aimed at supporting the company's established strategies and new initiatives to satisfy today's changing logistics landscape.
"Our global business continuity programs have ensured our ability to maintain service levels at our logistics sites, as well as across our air, sea, and domestic trucking services," said Mark McCullough, CEO of Gebruder Weiss USA.
As a full-service logistics provider with standardized global logistics processes and key U.S. locations in Atlanta, Boston, Dallas, Los Angeles, New York, and San Francisco, Gebruder Weiss has a total of approximately 90 logistics facilities worldwide, including its locations in the United States, Europe, Asia, and along the Silk Road.
The company said it is maintaining its original growth strategy by expanding in the United States on the West Coast in the second quarter of 2020 with its new Inland Empire warehouse and is eyeing additional expansion in the Midwest by year's end.
Operations at the new warehouse will be in full swing by the end of this week and include welcoming two recently won clients. Additional space is ready for potential customers wanting to shift or increase their inventory of critical supplies and products.
As McCullough points out, "Many Gebruder Weiss' customers are already starting to look closely at nearshoring supply chains and increasing safety stock levels of critical materials and products. With our new warehouse at Inland Empire, we are well-positioned to help businesses take advantage of these strategies."
