River Plate, Inc
River Plate, Inc. was born in July of 1992 as a family owned messaging trucking company though out southern California. Back then the company was called River Plate Trucking. As the years went by our customers demanded more than just transportation, so we listened… We opened up a warehouse for the customers to store their product, and gave an option to do cross docking.
Years down the road it became a Corporation and the C.E.O and founder of the company saw the need to add a pick and pack department, just when the e-commerce business was starting to grow at a very fast pace, that also brought along the assembly department, and all of this business came from River Plate, Inc. existing customers. back then we had no website, every customers that came to our facility was referred from other customers. River Plate, Inc. turned into what was before just a logistics company to a fulfillment house.
To make this story short, here we are a full Fulfillment Center, that was created from our existing clientele.
Hard work pays off, we love all of our clients and our clients love us. Feel free to ask for references, and ask our customers what is River Plate, Inc. all about.
Pick And Pack Services
On the contrary, using kitting services can pose a challenge for the fulfillment house and is probably why it may not be used as often. When inventory is pulled from stock in batches, it is harder to fill individual orders because inventory is wiped out quickly. A fulfillment expert will know how to manage this process by using a sophisticated inventory system that tracks turnover in all SKU’s so they can stay on top of on hand stock minimums.
Technologies specifically related to shipping containers are identification codes, bar codes and electronic data interchange (EDI). These three core technologies support the process of shipping containers throughout the distribution channel. Identification codes either relay product information or serve to identify other data. Bar codes allow for the automated input of identification codes and complementing data. EDI moves data between trading partners within the distribution channel.
Warehousing and Distribution
There are various methods of shipping goods; by air, road, sea, or rail. Some companies offer multi-modal solutions, this means that they offer more than one service, in many cases air and sea and in other cases air, sea, and road. The most common multi-modal way of shipping is referred to as inter-modal meaning truck pickup to rail to truck delivery.
A shipping method is selected by evaluating three factors: time, cost, and product characteristics. While shipping by sea could take longer than shipping by air, the latter is generally more expensive. Shipping by rail could also be complemented by piggybacking the freight onto a truck so it can be delivered to the receiver.
At River Plate Inc. we excel at freight logistics and will work with you to meet your freight shipping needs by air, road, sea or rail, domestic or international.
