Tigers opens new Californian facility to provide omni-channel fulfilment

Tigers USA has opened a new office and warehouse complex in Riverside (California) to provide omni-channel fulfilment to high-end footwear, apparel, and outdoor and active lifestyle customers across North America.

The Hong Kong-headquartered supply chain specialist, which is preparing for the USA launch of its eShop, is well positioned in the marketplace to help brands launch e-commerce initiatives, expand their distribution network, and provide global visibility to the entire supply chain.

Tigers Riverside logistics manager, Todd Krell heads the new facility and a team of 70 Tigers members of staff.

Tigers vice president of operations for West USA, Jeff Hudson said: “We expanded our Southern California operation to include the Inland Empire in order to support the expansion and evolution of our existing customer base of over 20 clients.

“Tigers Riverside is now a true flagship operation, supporting some of the world’s most innovative brands with very diverse and demanding fulfilment needs ultimately being driven by end consumers, specialty shops, and the ever-changing retail landscape.

“All of our brands are engineering their future in retail and depend on us to rapidly and proactively deploy solutions which support their initiatives, including but not limited to, expanding geographic distribution coverage, implementing a direct customer service offering, and launching drop-ship and e-commerce fulfilment.”

Tigers’ integration portal SmartHub: Connect offers customers full visibility and control of their supply chains, complete with real-time analytics, which drive constant enhancements.

The company operates 16 offices in North America, including Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Detroit, Los Angeles, Riverside, Miami, New York, Newark, San Francisco, and Seattle, with further expansion expected in 2018.

Tigers recently opened a warehouse facility in Dallas, Texas, specialising in health supplements, and other temperature-sensitive products, such as cosmetics.
