VF Corp opens new distribution centre in California
The US-based footwear group has announced the start of operations at its new distribution centre in Ontario, California. During peak periods, it will employ around 550 people
According to VF Corp, the new 1.2 million square foot facility is the “largest and most efficient” within its global network of 46 distribution centres. Implemented in partnership with Vanderlande Industries, it has the capacity to ship 485 000 units per day, twice the processing capacity and efficiency of a traditional distribution centre, and to provide next-day e-commerce fulfilment for consumers in California, Nevada, Arizona and southern Utah. Initially, the centre will service Vans and The North Face brands, but over time it is expected to include more house brands.

“We are proud to introduce VF's largest and most efficient distribution centre to date. Servicing our consumers and customers is our number one focus and this facility allows us to get our product to our consumers faster using technologically advanced equipment, which results in reduced lead times and increased efficiency in meeting consumer demands”, commented Cameron Bailey, EVP Global Supply Chain of VF Corp.

The group highlighted that the new facility was planned to support VF's sustainability commitments by including features and systems that can help reduce the impact on the environment, and it was “designed with employee health and well-being in mind”, said Jon Watschke, Vice President, of West Coast Distribution Centre Transition. “The centre offers EV chargers, both indoor and outdoor restorative areas and features a robust fitness facility on-site to encourage health and wellness”, he added.
