Santa Fe Springs, Calif., November 18, 2011 – Leading third-party logistics (3PL) company PERFORMANCE TEAM (PT) announces diversifying consumer products sectors. In tandem, the company is expanding its suite of services customizing and enhancing its logistics programs.
PT, which was recently chosen as a Top 100 3PL company for the fifth consecutive year, earned its reputation managing supply chain logistics from large corporations to a full array of wholesale vendors.
Leveraging success with these companies and particularly in the highly competitive and volatile garment sector, PT is now extending services to offer warehousing and distribution for new product categories including cookware, tires, motorcycles, scooters, ATVs, PWC, generators, engines and lawn equipment. New ancillary services include motorcycle and multi-use vehicle assembly and distribution.
“The old saying: ‘If you can service the retail garment industry you can do anything’ has been proven true in our highly successful expansion of new partnerships and projects, said Andy Miller, Performance Team’s president of retail supply chain. “We are touching parts of the industry that we never considered before.”
As part of its continued growth in the automotive supply industry, PT is expanding its work with a national tire company. What started as a single transload program in San Pedro, California, has expanded to Charleston, South Carolina; Houston, Texas; Norfolk, Virginia; and Savannah, Georgia adding drayage, regionalized transportation and line haul to the growing model.
In Charleston last summer, PT started a new program with its second private-brand tire marketer. This latest tire-related client is the largest marketer of private brand tires in North America and specializes in such categories as passenger, commercial, farm, and specialty tires.
Further building its client roster and pushing into new product sectors, PT is now partnering with a prominent power tools manufacturer that was honored with the “Innovator of the Year” award in 2010. PT is facilitating their growth by providing a new 185,000 square-foot warehouse in Charlotte for the company’s highly anticipated, environmentally friendly, lightweight lawnmower. In addition to dedicated warehousing, PT is now handling their transportation and drayage needs.
Adding to PT’s Ohio customer portfolio, PT’s West Coast transload and consolidation program has been a huge success for a high-end customer specializing in high quality non-stick cookware, bake ware, cutlery, small kitchen electronics and appliances.
