RealTruck announced it has added a new distribution center in Salt Lake City, Utah. The 230,000 square-foot warehouse, which opened its doors on April 1, is twice the size of RealTruck's other facilities in Springfield, Missouri and Jasper, Indiana.
This additional capacity and strategic location will help RealTruck's ability to make timely deliveries to customers west of the Rocky Mountains, according to the company's news release.
"We'll use the Salt Lake City DC to expand our Rapidship selection of parts that ship the same day and reach customers on the West Coast in two days or less," said Greg Nelson, president of e-commerce at Truck Hero, parent company of RealTruck. "Consumers today are most concerned with product availability and speed of delivery. This helps us better serve both those needs, becoming the truck accessory retailer they can trust."
RealTruck's newest distribution center was designed with energy efficiency in mind, utilizing motion and ambient light sensitive LED lighting, along with electric fork trucks. The building houses 27-foot-high racking which provides vertical space to store large numbers of parts and accessories.
"It's an exciting time to be part of the RealTruck family," said Tony Ambroza, chief growth officer. "We're scaling our operating model to deliver industry leading service to our customers from coast to coast. RealTruck.com is the destination for all truck owners shopping for the right parts and accessories to enjoy life's adventures."
