Third-party logistics provider Weber Logistics has added a 353,361-square-foot distribution center (DC) in Jurupa Valley, CA to its warehousing and distribution network. This multi-client facility, Weber’s largest, is the company’s fifth DC in Southern California’s Inland Empire region and twelfth DC within California.
With this new location, the company’s distribution center footprint in the Inland Empire is now 1,567,492 square feet – an expansion of 42% in the last two years.
The new operation will also result in the hiring of 30 new Weber employees.
Built in 2012, Weber’s Jurupa Valley facility will handle both B2C and B2B distribution of food, apparel and consumer goods.
The warehouse is an FDA-registered food storage facility that will be subject to regular safety and sanitation inspections by AIB International. Weber’s food logistics operations comply with all Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) requirements, as well as specific product and retailer requirements.
Additional facility features include:
- 49 dock doors
- 36’-high ceilings
- A secured yard with 24/7 monitoring that can accommodate up to 90 containers
- Racked and bulk storage
- Minutes from the 60 Freeway and I-15
“The continued demand for high velocity retail warehouse distribution here is driving the expansion of every solid 3PL player. The western portion of the Inland Empire region is optimal for both import and regional food product distribution. Every other geography in the Western U.S. comes in second,” according to Bob Lilja, Weber Logistics chief operating officer.
The Jurupa Valley DC further expands Weber’s footprint as a provider of integrated services on the West Coast, where drayage, warehousing and transportation can be combined into one seamless offering. And, as with other facilities throughout Weber’s network, this DC is also home to an array of value-added services including kitting and assembly, rework, repacking, retail display builds, and more.
