Weber Distribution says it has been awarded a three-year contract by Buxton, a manufacturer of personal leather goods, to handle the storage, pick-and-pack and distribution of its product line to retailers throughout the United States.
Weber is to perform a wide variety of 3PL-related services for Buxton, including storage, distribution, order processing, label generation, inventory control, and routing guide compliance, as well as value-added services such as order fulfillment, pick-and-pack, and re-work with ticketing and sub-styling.
Buxton's line of brands include Buxton, Dopp, Wenger and several private label programs for major retailers. Their wallets, travel kits, belts, business accessories, computer cases, totes, and other personal accessories are all manufactured in China and are stored and distributed at two of Weber's Southern California-based warehouses.
From Weber's 180,000-square-foot facility in La Mirada, California, Buxton's products are stored and orders are routed and picked by case or pallet for big-box retailers, including Staples and Office Max. This location also transloads consolidated containers to Weber's 212,000-square-foot facility in Rancho Cucamonga, California for Buxton's value-added service requirements, including routing of orders, and picking and packing, in addition to packaging changes, retail ticket changes, and building of assorted packs.
