Zenith Global Logistics, in an expansion of its East Coast warehousing and distribution capacity, has opened a new multi-tenant warehouse in Claremont, N.C.

Retailers can start with a small footprint and grow over time as conditions change, according to Jack Hawn, Zenith's president and chief executive officer.

Earlier this year, Zenith selected Exel Direct as its preferred home-delivery provider, with in-home delivery offered via four service levels through the 48 contiguous U.S. states. The service includes a Web-based rate-quote system which gives retailers an all-inclusive shipping and home-delivery rate from point of distribution to the consumer's home, along with an estimated data of delivery.
