GSO's Vince Johnson to Lead DTT and DTC Wine Shipping Programs


Date: 02/11/11

Golden State Overnight (GSO) has announced the promotion of Vince Johnson to the role of Sales Director for its Select Wine Service overnight wine delivery program. The promotion comes on the heels of a recently announced direct-to-trade (DTT) wine program to compliment GSO’s successful directto-
consumer (DTC) overnight wine delivery efforts in California, Nevada and Arizona.

“Vince has been with GSO for over 13 years, and has handled key accounts in several different industries,” said Morley Chandler, CEO of GSO. “Aligning Vince’s talents with GSO’s Select Wine Service demonstrates our commitment to the California wine industry, and helps maintain our standing as the regional overnight carrier of choice.”

"Delivering to every address in California since 1995, GSO has significant experience with the wine industry, and has developed a reputation for direct-to-consumer (DTC) point-of-delivery procedures that reduce handling times, increase delivery success, and reduce fees. Mr. Johnson’s considerable experience with large-scale DTC shipping accounts will help ensure the continued expansion of this popular program.
Mr. Johnson’s new responsibilities will also include expansion and account management for the recently announced GSO direct-to-trade (DTT) wine program."

"GSO’s DTT program provides overnight wine delivery to trade clients such as restaurants and retailers – eliminating the need for complicated warehousing and shipping routines, and enabling just-in-time inventory control that is cost-effective and easy to manage.
