Outsourced Warehousing and Distribution for CPG Manufacturers

Warehousing and distribution are both necessary and increasingly expensive logistics cycle activities for consumer packaged goods (CPG) manufacturers moving products across the Southeast. Frequent order replenishment for retailers can mean higher storage and shipping costs. Many manufacturers look to outsource their warehousing and distribution to third-party logistics (3PL) providers to streamline processes, improve efficiencies and decrease overall costs.
