Nexus Distribution was founded in 1980 by brothers Dean and Will Hansen who saw an opportunity to introduce bar code scanning into the warehousing and logistics industry. As one of the first logistics providers to begin offering this (then) new technology, Nexus rapidly forged partnerships with companies in the consumer packaged goods, retail clothing, pulp and paper, and consumer electronics industries, providing technology-driven logistics services out of the Chicago area.
As customer demand grew, Nexus soon expanded into multiple Chicago area warehouses and opened additional facilities in Allentown, PA and Atlanta, GA.
Today, Nexus Distribution provides integrated logistics solutions to a diverse portfolio of industries and customers, from Fortune 500 corporations to start-up companies. Focusing on customer-specific requirements, flexible public and contract warehousing offerings, and integrated technological applications, Nexus is well-positioned to provide companies with superior third party logistics services.
