Contract Warehousing & Distribution

Supply chain is the new differentiator for businesses facing increased pressure to serve customers faster, at a lower cost. To gain and maintain market share, or scale into new markets – warehousing and distribution strategy and execution must be aligned.

Solving Dynamic Distribution Challenges
Improving COST-to-SERVE & SPEED-to-MARKET: How do we get it there on-time at the right cost?
OMNI-CHANNEL COMPLEXITY: How do we synchronize inventory across multiple B2B and B2C sales channels?
LABOR CHALLENGES: How do we optimize our warehouse workforce to improve productivity, quality, and service?
Lacking OPERATIONAL EXPERTISE: How do we master the daunting competency requirements in today's dynamic supply chain?
Driving CONTINUOUS IMPROVEMENT: How do we avoid performance plateaus within the operation's four walls?

Driving sales, increasing market share, and increasing brand loyalty – these strategic business objectives can all be driven from within the four walls of a distribution facility. An expert operator who understands your dynamic warehouse environment can ramp speed-to-serve, drive efficiency, reduce supply chain costs – and enable profitable business growth.

Expert Supply Chain Operators
People
  • We specialize in people management. We handle every stage of the recruitment, training and retention process, so you can focus on building your business.
  • We set our associates up for success. When we hire new workers, we don’t just send them out onto the warehouse floor — we invest in people by providing comprehensive training that helps them develop the skills they need to excel. This dedication to training leads to lower turnover, which results in better overall performance.
  • We manage people, processes and systems to boost performance. Facility operations and contract warehouse management are our bread and butter. We work hard to meet four basic metrics for success — productivity, cost, service and security — so you don’t have to.

Processes
  • We bring structure to the transition process. A startup — whether taking over an existing facility or a greenfield startup — is challenging if your 3PL provider doesn’t have a formal integration process. We have a proven methodology for startup execution that ensures minimal to no disruption of your supply chain.
  • We’re more than just your average fulfillment center. We bring decades of operational experience in the distribution of goods for retail, consumer, distributor/wholesaler and aftermarket channels across North America.

Why LEGACY
  • We have over 35 locations in the U.S. and Canada. Our vast supply chain network connects B2B and B2C clients in a wide variety of industries with clients across the country.

  • We don’t take a one-size-fits-all approach to contract warehouse design. We carefully evaluate each client’s needs to determine which tools, software, processes and layout will help them get their products where they need to be that much faster.
  • We bring omni-channel expertise to the table. The rules of omni-channel distribution are still being written, and we’re helping write them. We develop customer omni-channel solutions for dynamic supply chains — either from the ground up or built on the framework of your existing supply chain infrastructure.
  • We believe a safe warehouse is an efficient warehouse. That’s why we take additional precautions to protect both our warehouse associates and our clients’ products. From in-depth safety training to risk management policies, we have safety and security covered.
