Signed earlier this year, 24Seven, the parent company to VINGO, LLC and recently acquired Pack n’ Ship Direct, agreed to a long-term lease for its new facility that will house the operations for the two business lines.
Owned by LDK Ventures, the North Bay Logistics Center is located at 700 Crocker Drive and features more than 843,000 sf of contiguous warehouse in Vacaville, a growing distribution hub, and ranks among the largest single-building distribution facilities in Northern California.
Brooks Pedder, SIOR, John McManus, CCIM, and Tony Binswanger, SIOR with Cushman & Wakefield represented the landlord in the transaction, with Pedder and Scott Bertrand also of Cushman & Wakefield representing the tenant.
Officially merging last November, VINGO just announced in June that the teams of Pack n’ Ship Direct and VINGO, both leaders in the wine fulfillment space, are now fully integrated. Though they service different clients, they have also partnered together on various projects. Pack n’ Ship Direct’s focus has been on “white glove” service for wineries in California, Oregon and Washington. VINGO’s focus was with high-volume, high-growth, e-commerce clients who require a more nationwide presence. 24Seven Enterprises sited being able to provide greater economies of scale and a broader portfolio of services as two main catalysts for the union.
In their prepared statement, Edmund Delaney, VINGOs Chief Revenue Officer, had said; “We are extremely excited about the next phase of our growth. This merger was a natural “next step” for us and our long time partners – Pack n’ Ship Direct. It provides us the scale to execute for our customers at a level not yet seen. We look forward to delivering elevated service and value to our customers of every size and across the country.”
Brooks Pedder, Managing Principal, Executive Managing Director with Cushman & Wakefield’s East Bay and Tri-Valley offices, said, “This was a strategic move for 24Seven to position themselves along Interstate 80 to better access outbound markets, but while keeping operations in close proximity to Napa. The Napa market is currently impacted with product scarcity.”
Pedder added, “Per our tracking, this transaction ranked as the largest wine lease in all Solano County and among the largest-ever wine leases in the entire North Bay Area.”
The 843,000-sf North Bay Logistics Center is situated on a 124-acre property along Interstate 505, which also features an additional 600,000-sf of planned warehouse. Serena & Lily occupies the remaining 434,000 sf in the existing building. Pedder noted, “Formerly the Save Mart distribution center, this second generation former grocery distribution center and extra land for development marks the beginning of the next chapter for industrial development in the East Bay.”
