Averitt launches distribution and order-fulfillment service

The first branded 93,000-square-foot facility has opened its doors in Nashville.

   Averitt Express said Monday it has expanded its supply chain service offerings with the introduction of Averitt Distribution and Fulfillment, a service designed to provide customers with end-to-end logistics as well as inventory warehousing and management solutions.
   “The launch of Averitt Distribution and Fulfillment comes at a time in our industry when shippers are increasingly seeking to place inventory closer to key markets and online shopping continues to drive up the demand for order fulfillment services,” said Wayne Spain, Averitt’s president and chief operating officer.

   Averitt Express said Monday it has expanded its supply chain service offerings with the introduction of Averitt Distribution and Fulfillment, a service designed to provide customers with end-to-end logistics as well as inventory warehousing and management solutions.
   “The launch of Averitt Distribution and Fulfillment comes at a time in our industry when shippers are increasingly seeking to place inventory closer to key markets and online shopping continues to drive up the demand for order fulfillment services,” said Wayne Spain, Averitt’s president and chief operating officer.
   The transportation and supply chain solutions provider has ushered in the new service with the opening of its first branded distribution and fulfillment center in Nashville. Located adjacent to Nashville International Airport, the 93,000-square-foot facility can accommodate a wide variety of shipping needs, including import and export management, online order fulfillment, pick and pack, small parcel and white-glove delivery, Averitt said.
    Averitt said while it has several terminals and standalone facilities that offer joint warehousing and logistics services, the new location expands its ability to cater to a more diverse field of shippers with varying needs.
   “The first of many to come, our Nashville facility leverages the strength of our existing less-than-truckload and full load network to offer shippers a centralized distribution hub in the South,” said Eddie Adkins, director of Averitt Distribution and Fulfillment. “At the same time, we can handle the order fulfillment needs of the growing ecommerce marketspace that tend to move small parcel shipments to both business and residential locations.”
    Customers that use the new facility have access to inventory visibility via Averitt’s warehouse management system and also can integrate their own preferred shipping platforms.

I really can’t think of a worse response to the myth of the driver solution than to reduce the driver age or reduce the already low standards to get a CDL.

Seven container liner shipping companies deploy capacity on the India Subcontinent to North America (US/CA) trade, with Maersk Line deploying the most capacity each week towards the trade, according to BlueWater Reporting’s Carrier/Trade Route Deployment Report.
