GEODIS pioneered flexible, multi-customer warehousing solutions within campus environments.
What is Campus Logistics?
For GEODIS, our campuses are collections of warehouses in close proximity. We currently have 26 strategically located campuses across GEODIS’s 36 million square feet of warehousing in the US. Having customers within close proximity allows us to share labor, management, equipment and space across many customers.
Within each of our campuses, we have shared labor environments enabling GEODIS to flex labor across operations or buildings based on labor requirements for that day or that hour. This allows for better management of ebbs and flows of your business at reduced costs. GEODIS has over 10,000 full time and part time employees to leverage across our network.
Along with our vast labor pool, we have on site IT, Human Resources, and Engineers at each campus ensuring we can react to your needs quickly. The management at each campus meets weekly to discuss operational efficiencies and to make sure the campus as a whole is utilizing best practices.
Our campus environment also allows us to create “pop-up” locations for peak season or product launches. GEODIS can set-up a temporary facility next door or across the country to prevent disruption in current operation due to lack of capacity.
One of the main reasons companies choose GEODIS for their eCommerce fulfillment is due to our flexible campus environment. This shared use model can substantially reduce the heavy costs of your seasonal demands in space, labor and technology so you can maintain great service to your customer during the most important times - without killing your margins.
Personalization is Key
Many e-retailers are well aware that the only experience their customer may ever have with them is via a box arriving at their door, which is why it is crucial that package makes a positive impression. We can provide personalization to shipping labels, custom packaging, white glove service, or anything that might delight the end-user, because your customers are our customers.
GEODIS’s 36 million square feet of strategically located warehousing in the US enables you to meet these increasing consumer demands. A single, central location in our network can reach 70% of the U.S. population in 2 days via ground. With three locations, you can reach 99% of the U.S. population in 2 days via ground.
