This was the first year that Frontline Distribution has attended the SIA ski and snowboard expo in Denver Colorado. Our initially impression is that this was one of the most dynamic, busy, outdoor industry trade shows that we have been to in the last couple of years. You could almost feel the excitement in air and the exhibitors and attendees passion for their outdoor industry.
All we can say is we feel the same, and have been skiing and riding almost since we were hatched 30 some odd years ago and this is definitely an industry we would like to bring some distribution efficiency to. Probably what most interesting thing we saw at the show is the resurgence of small enterprising companies starting to make kick ass skis and snowboards in the US again. It seems from what we saw, that the most exciting hubs for domestic ski design and production are coming out of Colorado and Lake Tahoe CA/NV. We couldn’t be happier to see dynamic, young, passion driven companies starting to make innovative ski and snowboard related products in the US market again.
With that said Frontline Distribution is dedicated to helping the ski and snowboard related industry with forward thinking, highly efficient supply chain distribution and freight solutions. Especially since much of this industry is so highly seasonal with regards to its throughput. There is really no reason to hold a long term lease when you can contract us for just the time you need warehousing and distribution related services. With our 15 regional warehouses, legions of staff, customizable pick pack shipment prep, and access to substantial freight discounts with all the major and regional carriers, you could not pick a better poised partner to help with your snow sports related distribution. Did we forget to mention that we are also long term riders that would be stoked to partner with you to better your lead times and cost to market!
If you are a ski or snowboard related sports company that is looking for a highly scalable, efficient, and cost effective manner to distribute and cross dock your products into any region of the USA, Canada, and Europe please let us know how we can be of service. We would be excited to strategize with you for the upcoming season, and give you a firm pricing offer for whatever supply chain type distribution solutions you may require. We look forward to speaking with you soon,
