GoLite Footwear Moves to New Warehouse
West Coast Location will Result in Better Service
NEWMARKET, NH, July 20, 2011 â€“ GoLite Footwear announced that they have moved their warehouse to Barrett Distribution Center in Fairfield, California. The decision to leave their distribution center in Vermont was made in an effort to reduce supply lead time from manufacturers in Asia by ten days. Orders may now be delivered to retailers up to two weeks earlier than in seasons past.
In addition, Barrett’s state-of-the-art operation includes several advanced capabilities. Fewer stock outs will improve order fill accuracy and order fill rates. Enhanced inventory control will result in more accurate available-to-sell information for our sales team and customers. Their superior value-added services include special labeling required by some of our accounts.
â€œWe always strive to provide our customers with the highest level of service possible. We are confident that our move to Barrett will allow us to get product onto retail shelves quickly, allowing them to maximize sales opportunities throughout the seasonâ€, says Scott Briggs, President of GoLite Footwear.
GoLite Footwear began shipping orders from the new location on July 5.
