VERO BEACH, Fla. May 6, 2010 – Southern Fulfillment Services (SFS), a Vero Beach, Fla. leader in fulfillment and logistics services, has recently expanded to serve the foliage industry with full truck load and LTL services. The company is processing loads daily at its Vero Beach facility for final distribution throughout the country. “We’re excited to provide quality services to a quality industry” says Don Wright president and CEO of SFS.
“SFS’ Logistics division is the invisible partner to over 100 different customers whose success relies on precision and accountability.” Scott Tyne, General Manager for SFS Logistics, continues, “We take pride in knowing that our internal structure has withstood the test of time, and that our state-of-the-art systems insure success.”
Southern Fulfillment Services is based on the east coast of Florida, and has two production and warehousing facilities in Texas. This structure provides unprecedented agility in an unpredictable transport logistics industry. SFS’s sister company SFS Transport has a growing fleet of trucks with refrigerated and flatbed service within Florida as well as nationwide. The company has a client base that includes business-to-business and direct-to consumer contacts.
Mr. Tyne says, “Our management team has more than 100 years of combined experience in the logistics and fulfillment industry. Our employees are motivated to plan ahead for every process and react quickly to every surprise. Last year we delivered 1.3 million packages directly to consumers, and we’re looking forward to exceeding that number in the coming months.”
Overall, the transportation industry is starting to see economic improvement. The American Trucking Association reports that transportation activity is at its highest level since November 2008. SFS is well positioned to embrace this increased growth. Cross docking, storage, pick/pack, logistics management or specialized packaging and services form the core of the SFS business, and services range from order processing to customized packaging for perishable and nonperishable products.
