MonarchFx, a Tompkins International company, has partnered with leading supply chain solutions provider NFI to select the first Rapid Deployment MonarchFx Center (RDMC), located in Chino, Calif.

The RDMC is embedded within the NFI distribution center campus, having the capacity to provide 19 million consumers with same-day delivery, 22 million with one-day delivery, and 51 million with two-day delivery. 

Executives from MonarchFx and NFI came together recently to sign the agreement to begin implementation of the RDMC. The Chino location is the first of five locations around the United States, slated to open within the next six months.

The Chino RDMC will include Tompkins Robotics, the SensorThink IoT platform, the Softeon technology platform, and the Tompkins Warehouse Execution System, all working together in a seamless manner. Along with the NFI team, this solution provides a uni-channel distributed logistics capability.

MonarchFx was created to give brands and retailers a credible fulfillment solution with low capital investment as an alternative to other 3PL solutions.

“I am excited to announce our partnership with NFI and to announce our first location in Chino,” said Jim Tompkins, CEO, MonarchFx. “This state-of-the-art fulfillment center will allow us to provide huge benefits to our clients and their customers.”
