Helping mass market retailers keep up with demand.
For a self-distribution mass market retailer, driving growth and keeping up with spikes in demand often means investing in more warehouses, tractor trailers, and automation. Rather than investing in more fixed assets that weigh down their bottom line, retailers can leverage our vast distribution infrastructure in order to focus on their stores and valuable employees. We serve as a trusted distribution partner to some of the biggest names in mass market retail.

We will work with you to test products in small geographies before launching nationally so you can avoid the risk of introducing slow-moving SKUs into your operations.
We are where you are
With over 80 distribution centers, hundreds of domiciles, and one of the nation’s largest private multi-temp fleets, McLane has the distribution network you need to deliver on your brand promise. We have a reputation for dependability and consistency and can ensure that we will have deliveries to your stores with fewer trucks and shorter lead times. We strive to be an extension of your internal supply chain— providing more products in more places, enhancing speed to shelf, on-shelf availability, product freshness, and consumer satisfaction. A lot of factors can affect the supply chain, which is why we have tested and proven contingency planning that leverages our vast network in times of emergency.
