Weber Distribution Names Senior VP, Opens NorCal Facility

Santa Fe Springs, Calif.-based third-party logistics firm Weber Distribution has appointed Marc Levin to senior vice president of client solutions. The 85-year-old firm also announced the opening of a new Northern California hub facility in Stockton.

A 23-year veteran of the logistics industry, Levin joins Weber after serving as Ryder Integrated Logistics' vice president of global business development. Prior to that, Levin served as director of global business development for Menlo Worldwide Logistics.
In his new role, Levin will oversee Weber customers in the areas of chemicals, consumer-packaged goods including food and beverage, import, paper, and retail.

Weber's new custom-built facility, located in Stockton about 60 miles south of the San Francisco Bay, features both temperature-controlled and dry storage areas and offers various services including order processing, label generation, inventory control, routing guide compliance, and pick & pack. The facility is designed to provide Weber customers with LTL, truckload, storage and value-added services for all of Northern California and Nevada ranging from Fresno to Redding and San Francisco to Reno. The Stockton facility will also absorb customers from Weber's shuttered Lodi, California facility.
