Good 360 opens national distribution and sorting center in Omaha

North Omaha is the new home of a national distribution company’s new centralized location.

Good 360 opened its distribution and sorting center on North 16th Street Friday. The organization gets donations of new surplus or out of season products from corporations. They repackage and donate the products to nonprofits, who distribute the items to people in need.

Omaha Mayor Jim Suttle says those types of businesses go a long way toward reducing North Omaha’s estimated 20 percent unemployment rate. He says new employment opportunities on the city’s north side will also reduce crime rates.

Good 360 consolidated 12 operations from around the country in to the Omaha location. The new warehouse is expected to reduce the company’s transportation costs.
