Capitalizing on a successful partnership established since 2014, GEODIS manages, since July 1st, 2017 a new warehouse in Los Angeles, California (USA), for Danone Waters of America, a subsidiary of Danone specializing in the distribution of bottled water.
A new five-year contract covers logistics operations (storage and handling) at the 15,000 m2 warehouse in Carson, Long Beach, near Los Angeles. From here, Danone will supply most of the western United States with products such as Evian and Badoit. The GEODIS operated warehouse manages a stock of 4,000 pallets and, as such, is able to handle an increase in the current quantities imported by Danone Waters of America. It is expected that more than 1.5 million beverage packs will transit through the site by 2018, the equivalent of 1,656 containers. The US subsidiary chose GEODIS because of its excellent understanding of its business challenges and for its ability to implement tailored solutions.
