Menlo Worldwide will provide logistics support to Jabil Circuit, the global electronic products solutions company.
Services under contract include establishing a warehouse facility and managing the receipt, storage and staging of inventory for Jabil's U.S. assembly operations in Memphis, and receiving and managing fulfillment of orders for parts, components and semi-finished goods for delivery to customers' plants.
"We're pleased to be able to extend and deepen our relationship with Jabil Circuit," says Robert L. Bianco, president of Menlo Worldwide, who says Menlo also supports Jabil's manufacturing operations in Guadalajara and Singapore. "We have a strong focus and competency with logistics operations for global technology clients. This expanded relationship is further validation of our momentum and traction as we grow our business in this important market vertical."
Menlo has selected Memphis as the location for the distribution operation serving Jabil. Menlo is providing a 150,000-square-foot facility, as well as racking and storage equipment, warehouse operations personnel, inventory management processes and systems, transportation management and logistics services.
"Our objective is to deploy best-in-class warehouse and inventory management practices that help drive efficiencies into our operations, and enable us to respond to our customers with more precision and flexibility," says John Novotny, Jabil's director of global logistics.
