The History of CDS


Customized Distribution Services, Inc. (CDS) has been providing comprehensive logistics, transportation and warehousing solutions to a variety of clients for over 25 years. The company’s operations were initially concentrated in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. CDS remains headquartered in Wharton, NJ, but has not allowed geography to serve as a barrier to growth and currently maintains a national presence.

This coast-to-coast expansion came quickly with operations commencing in California in 1997. Further growth into Indiana and Oklahoma came in 2003 and the southwestern Illinois market in 2005. Establishing ourselves as a one of the top 3pl companies, CDS is fully able to provide national logistics expertise combined with personalized service delivery.

CDS currently services a wide variety of well-recognized consumer goods and beverage manufacturers on a long-term contract basis. CDS also provides flexible public-warehousing options in certain markets – New Jersey, Illinois and Ontario, California.

CDS is a privately held corporation with the majority of the ownership team also serving in key leadership roles. This level of engagement by decision makers creates a company with a unique ability to deliver customized solutions to individual client needs in a safe, efficient and effective manner.
