Exploring Sacramento’s Premier 3PL Warehousing Solutions

Warehousing is like real estate: the three most important words are location, location, and location. That’s why G&B Fulfillment took the bold step to relocate its warehouse operations from the Los Angeles area to a new Sacramento 3PL warehouse.

With this move in 2023, G&B Fulfillment has strategically positioned itself to provide unparalleled 3PL logistics solutions. The relocation has proven to be a game-changer, offering various benefits that elevate the logistics experience for businesses across industries.

Driven by inflation and other hurdles, business logistics costs in the U.S. rose 19.6% in 2022 compared to the year before. Businesses face relentless pressure to manage logistics and transportation costs to maintain their competitiveness.

G&B Fulfillment recognized the challenges of rising costs, space constraints, and increasing demand for efficient warehousing and crafted its logistics solutions to help customers address them head-on.

Strategic Location Logistics

The decision to relocate G&B Fulfillment operations to the Sacramento/Woodland area was driven by the desire to provide the highest levels of service at more reasonable rates. Otherwise, customers faced a warehouse storage rate increase of up to three times the previous rates. G&B’s leadership team decided Southern California was an unsustainable location for their clients as well as the company. The company paid to move the client’s products to the new location.
The Sacramento region provides a cost-effective alternative to the Southern California Inland Empire market, offering relief from congestion, port issues, and skyrocketing warehousing costs. Proximity to the Port of Oakland further adds to the strategic advantage, ensuring smoother transportation routes and reduced congestion, thereby enhancing overall efficiency.

Our supply chain visibility solutions track and report key performance indicators (KPIs) so you can be confident goods are flowing seamlessly from warehouse to destination.

Proximity to Major Transport Routes

The Sacramento facility strategically bypasses major traffic routes, facilitating faster and more efficient distribution. While moving service to the Port of Oakland may mean longer transit times in some cases, that’s offset by lower costs for storage and drayage. Working with a less congested port improves the customer’s experience with getting their product available for sale sooner.

Transformative Technology

G&B Fulfillment leverages cutting-edge technology, including user-friendly scanning systems and seamless ERP integration, to enhance accuracy and streamline operations. Employees are able to easily scan product and locations and totes and bins for a very high level of accuracy on orders. This technology not only reduces errors with a single source of truth but also accelerates onboarding new employees.

While leveraging automated systems for efficient inventory management, G&B also strongly emphasizes employee training, error analysis, and proactive problem-solving. This unique blend ensures foolproof systems that adapt to the complexities of each client’s needs.

Overcome Space, Labor, and Cost Concerns

G&B Fulfillment understands the concerns of its clients, especially regarding space, labor, and overall costs. The decision to move to Sacramento has proven instrumental in mitigating these challenges. The availability of a skilled workforce at a fair wage in the area has translated into stable operations and better service.

Success Story

A notable success story emerges from G&B Fulfillment’s decision to relocate. By avoiding the rapidly increasing warehouse rent costs in Southern California, the company not only shielded its clients from potential cost hikes but also enhanced customer service and satisfaction.

Flexibility and Growth Opportunities

As logistics costs continue to fluctuate, G&B Fulfillment’s Sacramento/Woodland location positions the company to navigate these challenges effectively. The flexibility to accommodate smaller incremental growth steps offers a strategic advantage, allowing the company to grow with clients seamlessly and minimize risks associated with massive expansions.
