About Alpha Distribution Solutions
During these challenging times, Alpha Distribution Solutions continues to grow in size, strength, and capacity.
Since 1936, four generations of the Biever family have been involved in producing and shipping apparel goods to top retailers across the United States. As more and more apparel production moved outside the USA, the Biever family expanded their business horizons, and in 1997 created Alpha Distribution Solutions. Today, Alpha Distribution Solutions is the premier apparel distributor on the East Coast, with sophisticated programs available to assist you in taking maximum advantage of your major retailer apparel and consumer goods supply contracts. In fact, over the past few years our clients have been a repeat recipient of Wal Mart’s Vendor of the Year for their product category. We also work with JC Penney, Sears, Target, and other major retailers.
To be effective, your 3PL needs to be able to handle great amounts of data, and help you organize it in a way that helps you run your business. With over 400,000 square feet of warehouse space and a state-of-the-art warehouse management system, Alpha Distribution Solutions can exceed your 3PL expectations.
