Reno, Nev., Sept 5, 2013: Bender Group, a third party logistics (3PL) company headquartered in Reno, Nev., recently leased a 50,296 sq.-ft. building at 627 Adams in Kansas City, Kan. Bender Group offers logistics solutions to help companies of all sizes improve their supply chain systems, from the manufacturing source to delivery through multiple distribution channels. The new facility will serve the central U.S. market and complements existing eastern and western fulfillment DCs in Winchester, Va, Woodland & Riverside Calif. and Reno Nev. Bender Group plans to grow and market its multi-client operation in Kansas City to service both existing and new clients.
"Adding Kansas City to our existing fulfillment DC network bolsters our ability to ship to over 98% of the entire US population within two days,” said Jared Lindwall, manager of business development for Bender Group. “This will provide a competitive advantage for our clients looking to get their product to the market faster, whether it is a traditional retail or direct-to-consumer order."
