A History of Simplifying the Supply Chain

Evans Distribution Systems has a history of providing integrated logistics solutions in Michigan and throughout the Midwest, dating back to 1929. In 1932, Evans was recognized by local papers for our innovation in simplifying the distribution process. Our customers and services have changed over the years, but our dedication to developing innovative supply chain management solutions remains the same.

Starting out as a single warehouse in the heart of Detroit, Michigan's wholesale and jobbing district, Evans has grown to incorporate two warehousing and distribution companies (Central Detroit

Warehouse and Progressive Distribution Centers), three truckload carriers (Merchants Forwarding Co., Maverig Freight and Alden Logistics), a transportation management company (Evans Logistics) and a temporary staffing agency (Evans Resource Solutions).

Today, Evans Distribution Systems provides warehousing and distribution, transportation, contract packaging and quality inspection services for companies in the automotive, chemical, food and beverage and consumer products industries.
