Weber Distribution Wins Vitamin Shoppe Business

Aug. 30, 2010
Weber Distribution, a third party logistics and supply chain management provider, announced that it has signed a multi-year contract with The Vitamin Shoppe, a specialty retailer and direct marketer of nutritional products, to warehouse and distribute many of their 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 is performing a high volume pick and pack operation, which is time sensitive on adherence to expiration dates. The entire process is radio frequency based to provide real time access to fulfillment activities and reporting through Weber’s web portal.

At its 303,000 square foot food-grade facility in Fontana, California, Weber receives product directly from many of the 700 Vitamin Shoppe vendors. Vitamin Shoppe’s product lines include vitamins, minerals, nutritional supplements, herbs, sports nutrition formulas, homeopathic remedies, green living products, as well as health and beauty aids.

In addition to distribution and inventory control services, Weber has equipped the facility with a customized quality control room where personnel from Vitamin Shoppe can perform quality processes and sampling of products to ensure all shipments meet Vitamin Shoppe’s standards.
