The facility provides less-than-truckload (LTL), truckload, storage and value-added services for all of Northern California and Nevada ranging from Fresno to Redding and San Francisco to Reno.
The Stockton facility was custom-built for Weber and is divided into temperature-controlled and dry storage and offers a variety of services, including order processing, label generation, inventory control, routing guide compliance, and pick & pack. Weber has closed its facility in Lodi, Calif., and has moved its customers to Stockton to service the growing region.
