Distribution

Windmill is unique in its ability to deliver novel formulas from concept to consumer sale. With our broad capabilities, experience and superior service, we are committed to grow your VMS category sales.

"Windmill’s office and distribution centers consists of approximately 200,000 square feet in West Caldwell, New Jersey and Orlando, Florida. Warehouse layouts includes flow racks and pallet locations - all barcode controlled. The warehouses are managed and orders are picked using RF scanners.

The highest volume of shipments occur using UPS and Windmill runs UPS World Ship which is integrated with Microsoft NAV. Non-UPS shipments are handled by a variety of truckers depending on retailer requirements.

Virtually all major customers are on EDI and Windmill is compliant with all required ASC X12 transaction sets. Independent retailer orders are received (85%) through our field sales representatives using proprietary order software on I-Pads and scanners directly connected to NAV. Independent pharmacy retailers can also place orders directly through our website, under the Pharmacist Corner tab.

Windmill has successfully partnered with electronic retail and direct response companies that sought to expand their distribution into multiple channels. As an authorized vendor in this space, our experienced team is capable of managing the sales, logistics, marketing, and accounting of your product.
