Consumer Goods Logistics Services on the West CoastDozens of consumer product companies trust Weber for accurate, on-time orders to their retail customers.

Advantages of Weber’s CPG Logistics Services

  • Reduce retailer chargebacks. Full time compliance manager and excellent working relationship with contacts at retail delivery locations.   
  • Gain flexibility. Expand and contract warehouse space as your business changes. Weber operates millions of square feet of West Coast 3PL warehousing space. 
  • Get the attention you need. Don’t get lost at a large-scale 3PL too busy to focus on you. 
  • Reduce administrative time and costs. We are a one-source solution for import product distribution.  For many consumer goods customers, we manage port pick up, de-consolidation, warehousing, and final delivery. 
  • Cut freight costs with pool distribution. Linehaul products to the West Coast where Weber can break shipments down and manage last mile delivery to your west region customers. 
  • Manage B2B and B2C fulfillment from the same distribution center. This allows you to minimize your inventory by replenishing all channels, including eCommerce fulfillment in California, from the same inventory pool. 

Focus on Value-Added Services. 

Weber can customize your product to the exact requirements of your retail customers. Product postponement and kitting services allow you to delay final product configuration until just prior to shipment.
