Load Delivered establishes Los Angeles operation
Load Delivered Logistics, a leading technology-enabled third-party logistics (3PL) provider, has opened a new Los Angeles-based operations.
The expansion allows Load Delivered to meet the growing shipping and logistics demands of West Coast customers, including popchips and Mary Ann's Baking Company.
As a Food Logistics Top 100 3PL, Load Delivered is committed to serving customers through the use of technology-enabled supply chain and logistics management services. After experiencing a 28 percent increase in freight shipments from the Western 11 over the past year, Load Delivered opened the Los Angeles office to provide improved, local support for customers. As a response to the continued growth of the e-commerce industry, the West Coast office is entering the final mile delivery market in the area.
"Part of our core philosophy is to always do what is best for our customers, and this office is a reflection of their needs," said Robert Nathan, CEO of Load Delivered. "The busy West Coast ports and fast-growing e-commerce businesses make southern California a key location for Load Delivered. It is an important distribution point to our customers and positions us to strategically scale in high-growth markets."
As Load Delivered continues to develop niche expertise in the food and beverage industry, the West Coast has become an integral part of their operations. According to the US Department of Agriculture, the Western 11 accounts for over 25 percent of the nation's agriculture receipts, and California itself leads the nation in production of 78 crop and livestock commodities, including rice, lettuce, and milk.
"Load Delivered's new operations based on the West Coast made them the ideal partner for our shipping needs," said Robert Gonzales, Logistics Manager at Mary Ann's Baking Company. "We pride ourselves on delivering fresh, high-quality products to our customers, and can do so in working with Load Delivered's local support."
Michael Cherney, director of West Coast Operations, will oversee the new location. Cherney was the seventh person hired at Load Delivered, and has experience working in every department of the company and with Load Delivered management to strengthen customers' supply chains. He will be sourcing his team from the area surrounding the Silicon Beach office. As an area rich with technology talent and recent graduates from surrounding universities, Los Angeles is a prime location to find strong talent for Load Delivered.
