Packaging & Distribution Resources Expands Operations

Surge in e-Commerce Business From COVID-19

Packaging & Distribution Resources (PDR), a New Jersey-based warehouse and distribution company with a global clientele that serves the beauty, nutritional supplement, PPE, cosmetic, personal care, home goods, direct response and consumer packaged goods (CPG) industries, announced the addition of a new facility in Edison. This latest expansion spans 114,000 additional square feet of space and includes 18 assembly lines and 40-foot ceilings for amplified storage capabilities.

PDR’s growth is being fueled by accelerated growth in e-commerce due to the pandemic and the success of TV home shopping networks and a booming e-tailer sector led by Amazon. To meet these demands and specific customer needs such as demand planning and forecasting, PDR has also implemented a new, robust, Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system including procurement, project management, and supply chain operations. What’s more, PDR has just increased its workforce by 15% (in operations, customer service, assembly production, and receiving) and added more flow racks and conveyors to service its e-commerce clients. All of these efforts are designed to help PDR clients fulfill orders and save money.

This growth brings PDR’s Edison presence to nearly 320,000 square feet in four buildings, which includes two large warehouses, a warehouse and assembly facility for boutique brands, and a storage facility. One primary PDR warehouse is 139,000 square feet with 36-foot-high ceilings.

According to PDR’s Founder & CEO, Jack Sandbach, “This expansion is on the heels of the company diversifying its customer portfolio and growing our e-commerce business, as well as our focus on emerging industries including PPE and at-home hair color treatments. Our new software provides added value to our clients. While they all use forecasting tools, our new ERP offers complementary data and tools to save them money through in-depth sales data evaluation and smarter demand planning.”

PDR is highly regarded for its product assembly capabilities. It provides this service for Home Shopping Network (HSN) and QVC, and serves QVC UK, QVC Germany, TVSN in Australia, ShopNBC, and The Shopping Channel in Canada. The company is the go-to assembly and mailing services company for flash sales and “deals” segments on Good Morning America and The View.
