STOCKTON – Do you need a place to store five truckloads of canned food product? Perhaps you’re an East Coast manufacturer looking for a distribution center to serve the California market? Or you’re bringing in flatcars stacked with two-by-fours and need someone to unload and distribute the lumber? Or you have a line of office products made in China and need someone to pick, package and ship individual customer orders?

You might check with Best Logistics Inc., whose 23-acre campus at the Port of Stockton boasts more than 550,000 square feet of warehouse space, including 120,000 square feet of certified food storage and more than 16 acres of outdoor storage for goods, trucks, trailers or heavy equipment. It is served by rail.

Executive Vice President Erin Jenkins said business is really about helping other companies manage the flow of materials though their operations from raw materials to finished goods.

“A lot of times, our clients will use us to feed manufacturing, and other customers will use us to pull from manufacturing and distribute to the market,” she said.

Best moves about 300 shipping containers of goods monthly from the Port of Oakland, then moves the contents to other Central Valley destinations.

Jenkins said the company recently started a fulfillment service as well, filling a stockroom with goods and filling and shipping orders directly to consumers.

It’s all about filling a need.
