FleetPride, Inc. has opened of a new 110,000-square-foot regional distribution center in Visalia, California. Located at 7107 West Sunnyview Avenue, this regional distribution center will service the heavy-duty transportation market in the western U.S.
Visalia's inventory includes over 30,000 SKUs and reflects the demand of FleetPride's regional customer base. In addition to the considerable parts inventory, the Visalia regional distribution center will also offer axle assembly, kitting and light packaging.
"FleetPride chose this location because it is centrally located in California, allowing for one day transit anywhere within the state,” said Robert Lindley, FleetPride's Vice President of Supply Chain. “From Visalia, we can also deliver to any of our 43 western region company owned branches in two days or less. Visalia is FleetPride's third distribution center in the U.S., and it is another significant move to streamline FleetPride's national heavy-duty truck and trailer parts logistics network.”
"Quickly getting the right parts in the right place at the right time is crucial to keeping our on-time delivery promise to our customers," said Todd Dunn, FleetPride President and CEO.
The Visalia regional distribution center will be led by industry veteran Brian Chupp. As Western Region Distribution Manager, Chupp will oversee a team of 15 employees. Assisting him will be Warehouse Manager, Tammy Figueredo.
