States Logistics Services Joins Distribution Centers of America (DCA)

Integrated 3PL to Represent Both Arizona and Southern California Regions

BUENA PARK, CA--(Marketwire - January 12, 2010) - States Logistics Services, Inc (SLSI) has assumed regional representation in both the Arizona and Southern California markets for the national marketing cooperative, the Distribution Centers of America (DCA). Membership in DCA, now celebrating 25 years of national advantage through regional excellence, is a highly coveted privilege, by invitation only and reflects the voted approval of all member companies.

States Logistics is an excellent illustration of that caliber. In a recent ExecDigital online magazine, SLSI is cited for differentiating itself through integrated service, technology, and sustainability initiatives, having earned numerous "Best of the Best" ratings within their customers' distribution networks.

"States' mission is to be the best fully integrated provider of 3PL services," states Ryan Donovan, VP Operations in California. "With so many customers in food manufacturing, we have to stay ahead of the game to survive."

Sustainability is core to the company's philosophy and operations, with recent achievements including Silver LEED status for the new Arizona warehouse, achieved in part, by using locally provided products, T-8 lamps and solar panels powering half the 417,000 sq ft facility. Last quarter, States won a U.S. EPA Smartway Environmental Excellence Award for conserving energy and lowering greenhouse gas emissions in freight and transportation activities, related to SLSI's B99 Biodiesel fleet -- a pioneering joint initiative with progressive customer, ClifBar.
