About Gerson’s Logistics

We are an importer for retailers and have been in business for over 70 years. We are based in Olathe Kansas, have logistic offices in Hong Kong and Shanghai, and can ship internationally. We showcase our product lines annually in over 10 markets across the country including three permanent showrooms – Olathe, Las Vegas and Atlanta.

Our Olathe distribution center has more than 495,000 square feet of warehouse, showroom, and office space. Our Hong Kong and China offices ensure quality levels are met for product sourcing, quality control, and logistic needs.

About Gerson’s Products

We are comprised of two divisions – a Gerson Everyday division, which includes our popular Everlasting Glow® brand, and a seasonal product division which includes our Gerson International Limited (GIL) and Sterling Christmas brands. Both season product lines make up our book-and-buy division, and each line is available to purchase from for twelve weeks, twice a year. Our Gerson Everyday division is available to purchase from year-round.

The Gerson Everyday branded product lines include: Lone Elm Studios, Everlasting Glow® Flameless Candles, Lanterns, Lighted Branches and Light Strings, Garden Meadow, The GG Collection and Universal SunRay.

In our GIL seasonal product line, we design, import, and distribute two complete lines of seasonal merchandise (fall/Christmas and spring/summer) that are pre-booked with retailers six months in advance. We pre-sell then manufacture what we sold. This keeps our inventory lean with few mark-ups, so we can offer you the lowest prices.
