Furthermore, we can make recommendations on the specific area in southern California for you to locate your outsourced fulfillment solution. There are a number of different areas within southern California:
- Long Beach
- Greater Los Angeles (Also Los Angeles County)
- Orange County
- San Bernadino County
- Inland Empire
Each of these areas offers some distinct advantages and disadvantages for the ultimate location of your outsourced fulfillment provider.
Port of Long Beach is the highest volume port in the US, so it should come as no surprise that this is one of the most frequently searched areas to find a fulfillment company. The pro to locating in this immediate area is obviously the proximity to the port, especially for companies that sell bulkier and heavier items so that freight charges are minimized. However, there aren’t many fulfillment companies in this immediate area, especially for smaller and growing companies. The main logistics focus of this area is receipt and distribution of containers.
Many people search each month for a warehousing and fulfillment company in the greater Los Angeles area or Los Angeles County because of the high density of people in the city. However, the majority of fulfillment companies are located in the surrounding cities due to high costs of warehouse space and labor within the city of Los Angeles itself.
Orange County is a popular area to locate a fulfillment company, for many of the same reasons that people seek out a provider in Los Angeles. There is a great concentration of population in this area, and businesses are abundant in the area as well. Because it’s close to the port of Long Beach, it is a great area to minimize inbound freight. However, this area does tend to be a little more expensive than others in the southern California market.
These two areas that reside north and east of Los Angeles are very popular for location of fulfillment companies. The options in these markets are plentiful, especially since the warehouse space is cheaper in these areas and the associated labor costs are more affordable as well since they are out of the city. Of course, they are a little further inland and require additional freight costs to deliver inbound product to the fulfillment center. However, they are a great, cost effective option for most companies.
