A new 204,000-sq.-ft., multi-tenant warehouse in Claremont, NC, marks the latest expansion for Zenith Global Logistics.
“We understand that many retailers are adjusting their required inventory more frequently during these tough times, and this facility was opened with that in mind,” explains Jack Hawn, president and CEO of Zenith. “It allows retailers to start with a small footprint and grow over time as conditions change. This flexibility means our customers can inventory their best-selling, fast-turning items, with quick delivery to the dealer, thereby eliminating the need to warehouse an entire product line if they choose.”
The new Claremont warehouse will also serve as Zenith Global’s dedicated East Coast in-home delivery center and will offer pick, pack and ship service for home accent products, according to Hawn.
Zenith Global Logistics selected Exel Direct earlier this year as its preferred home delivery provider and now provides in-home delivery with four distinct service levels throughout the 48 contiguous US states. The in-home delivery service includes a newly developed proprietary Web-based rate quote system that gives retailers the exact, all-inclusive shipping and home delivery rate from the point of distribution to the consumer’s home as well as the estimated date of delivery.
Zenith currently operates more than 4.5 million square feet of warehouse domestically, including facilities in Southern California, Dallas, Mississippi, North Carolina and Virginia.
