Nonprofits to Benefit from Even More Donation Variety, Options
With the support of UPS and The UPS Foundation, Good360 began to reposition our donated inventory last fall from multiple sites into a centralized warehouse where it had an existing Good360 warehouse service partner, Cargo Zone LLC.
“Nebraska reduces the in-transit time to our charitable network across the United States, and increases our supply-chain efficiency by enabling us to ship and receive donations out of one facility versus many,” said Good360 Chief Operating Officer Don Miller. “Additionally, as part of our streamlining efforts, Good360 has opened a national sorting center for all product donations.”
Thanks to support from The Home Depot Foundation and Cargo Zone, this new facility is co-located with our warehouse in Omaha and provides the space needed to sort and repack products each day.
New Sorting Center Provides Local Jobs
“Thanks to our new facility, our team is able to sort and configure donations to better meet the needs of our nonprofits,” said Miller. “It also allows us to do a quality check to ensure we are delivering what the recipient nonprofit requested. We are thrilled to be able to enhance our services further for our network.”
The centralized sorting center and distribution model provides increased transportation advantages for both Good360 and its donors, provides the opportunity for us to handle customer and vendor returns through our newly expanded reverse logistics capabilities, and yields a wider charitable impact for every donation made to Good360.
Good360 thanks the Office of Mayor Jim Suttle, the Greater Omaha Chamber of Commerce, and the citizens of Omaha for such a warm and gracious welcome into their community!
