Meyer Distributing Inc. announced the addition of a new cross-dock in Lakewood, Wash. The cross-dock will have a direct, next-day feed from Meyer’s Portland, Ore., distribution hub which houses one of the largest inventories of automotive accessories and RV parts in the Northwest.
“While RV has been our core business in the Northwest, our traditional truck accessory business is really catching stride as customers see what we can bring to the table,” said Cody Ziegler, national sales manager for Meyer, in a press release.
Ziegler added, “We welcome customer feedback because it is essential in having the right mix of products on the shelf. We are increasing our inventories and reinvesting in the region each week. We have also established new service along the Oregon and Washington coasts as well as doubling delivery to the Seattle metropolitan area. Each customer serviced from the Lakewood cross-dock is now on next day delivery.”
“It’s been a pretty exhausting pace building out our infrastructure from a single location in Jasper, Ind., to now 10 distribution hubs and 56 logistic cross-docks in not much more than a decade,” stated Jeff Braun, CFO of Meyer.
Braun adds, “It’s been fun completing the map we planned so many years ago. We’ve just been so fortunate to have incredible employees all over the country that come in each day ready to work hard and work smart. If not for their efforts, we’d still be operating out of the double wide trailer in a 500 person town where our business started.”
