Nike opens its biggest-ever distribution centre in Tennessee
Nike has officially opened its new North America Logistics Campus – Memphis (NALC-Memphis) facility – its largest distribution centre in the world. The 2.8 million square foot facility holds all of the company’s three product lines – footwear, apparel and equipment –and distributes Nike and Jordan Brand products to individual consumers, wholesale customers and Nike’s own retail channels.
“We built NALC-Memphis to enhance our ability to provide our consumers what they want: premium Nike products delivered quickly and efficiently,” said Eric Sprunk, Chief Operating Officer at Nike.
“When we deliver like this for our consumers, we grow and expand our business. Through successful partnerships with state and local government, we’ve built a premier logistics center that meets the increasing demands of our consumers and our wholesale customers, while also ensuring that the facility meets our high standards for sustainability.”
“This facility was built to offer greater cost efficiencies, reduce shipping times and increase service capabilities for our consumers and retail partners,” said Trish Young, VP of North America Supply Chain Operations.
Nike said that it opened its first distribution centre in 1982 when its revenues stood at just under $700 million and last Thursday (25 June) the company announced it had surpassed $30 billion in revenue.
