Central Distribution System Stands Ready to Help Customers Affected by Recent Wildfires!

S SAN FRANCISCO, CA - October 13, 2017 - Numerous devastating fires broke out in Napa and Sonoma County in the early hours of October 9th. Since then, we have learned over 3,500 homes and businesses have been destroyed, 170,000+ acres have been burned, there are tens of confirmed deaths, and hundreds are still missing as the damage continues. With 22 fires currently burning, we have learned these fires have made this the third deadliest fire season in California's modern history!

2017 Sonoma County Fire

As a leading wholesale distribution company providing a broad range of products and services to distributors in the region, our thoughts are with everyone in the communities we service who have been affected. These horrific fires have taken lives, destroyed homes and decimated businesses! As a functioning distribution organization, we were forced to temporarily suspend deliveries that were scheduled for the area and began contacting customers in the affected counties to determine how assistance could be provided. As individuals ourselves, we are also each doing what we can to personally help our family and friends.

Central Distribution System's distribution center, delivery truck fleet, communication and data processing systems are all operating at full capacity and no staff have been injured or directly impacted by the fires. Although some customers in the region have reported damage to their facilities, Central Distribution System is fully committed to making sure our customers have the products they need to get their businesses (and their customers) fully operational again.
