With online sales skyrocketing during the pandemic, GLC Distribution’s L.A. warehouse has experienced a year-over-year increase of 60% in storage and distribution services related to e-commerce.

A core competency for the Los Angeles facility, end-to-end e-commerce fulfillment represents 40% of the revenue generated.

Early in the third quarter, it became clear that to better accommodate the growing e-commerce business of our clients, the 165,000-square-foot facility, which has 27 dock doors and 8,600 pallet positions, would need further optimization.

GLC Distribution is committed to our clients’ growth. An $80,000 investment in additional shelving will allow us to expand our capacity to manage that growth. We are an extension of our clients’ businesses, so we are committed to managing the partnership responsibly,” said John Rodríguez, General Manager.

On October 19, the shelving project was launched, adding 2,500 additional pallet positions and three new pieces of equipment. Just in time for the holiday rush.

This expansion project is part of GLC Distribution’s broader strategy to enhance its infrastructure and service offerings to meet the rising demands of e-commerce. The investment not only increases storage capacity but also improves the efficiency and speed of order fulfillment processes. This strategic enhancement aligns with GLC Distribution’s goal to provide top-notch logistical support and seamless service to its clients, ensuring their products reach consumers swiftly and in perfect condition.

Moreover, the additional shelving and equipment will help GLC Distribution manage peak season volumes more effectively, reducing the risk of delays and enhancing overall customer satisfaction. By staying ahead of industry trends and continuously improving its facilities, GLC Distribution reaffirms its commitment to being a reliable partner in its clients’ supply chain operations.
