When a mid-90’s strike within the transportation industry disrupted countless supply chains, our distribution to retail stores flourished. Veterans captured the immediate attention and trust of businesses needing products delivered overnight to Customers in the Chicago Metropolitan Area. With significant delivery density, volumes, and our experience in the same day sector, our distribution routes were born.
Today, we process over 40,000 items a night on a 75,000 sq. ft. automated sortation system. To celebrate our 50th anniversary (in 2014), we consolidated into a brand new 300,000 sq. ft. distribution center in Hillside, IL 60162. Our new home is the launching point of 125 daily routes that cover our immensely populated footprint that is shown below.
Veterans Distribution of Chicago continues to grow tremendously, but we always remain true to our family owned and operated culture of excellence. Our people and our experience separate us from the competition.
