Vejii Holdings, which owns and operates the plant-based marketplace ShopVejii.com, has entered into a third-party logistics (3PL) agreement with a cold storage service provider in San Diego, California, expanding its distribution footprint on the West Coast.
Vejii expects to complete technical integrations and start shipping a full range of frozen and refrigerated products from this facility by the end of January 2022.
Having access to this additional space will allow the company to onboard new brands as well as better service its existing brands with added distribution capabilities.
"I am excited about having our first distribution partner in California, this will not only make it easier for us to onboard local brands, but will improve our overall operational efficiencies by getting products closer to our customers on the west coast, improving freight costs, shipping times and overall customer satisfaction," said Darren Gill President and COO of Vejii. "We will now focus on finding a same-day delivery partner to help us service the San Diego area and beyond and will provide more updates on this as we move forward."
Strategically located to improve shipping efficiencies in addition to its existing warehouses, this will allow the company to tap into the growing vegan community across California and along the entire West Coast.
