Distribution warehouse offering service in Tampa Bay Florida

Distribution warehouses move goods to where they are needed

Why do companies use a distribution warehouse near Tampa?

Companies that move goods in large quantities use distribution warehouses to get goods where they need to be in the supply chain. Distribution warehouses provide the space and staff required to receive and process large shipments and inventories. To meet requirements there may be multiple distribution warehouses in a single company’s supply chain. Common locations of a distribution warehouse include near the manufacturer of goods, near the port of entry of goods, or near the consumer of goods.

Outsourcing work to distribution warehouses in strategic locations can reduces costs and streamline operations. Companies can grow quicker, and into new regions, by partnering with experienced warehouse providers that are already established. Since distribution warehouses specialize in warehousing they generally maintain a high quality of operations and an advanced inventory management system. Flexible distribution warehouses make it easy to scale your operation when you need.

What services does a distribution warehouse provide?

Distribution warehouses offer the standard services required to offload, store, and ship goods. A quality warehouse partner is generally flexible and willing to offer any special services that you may require, such as repackaging or inspection. Most distribution warehouses provide lot control, serial number capture, asset tagging, and other functions that are required during the receiving and shipping of goods.

Most distribution warehouses receive freight via palletized or loose loaded container or truckload shipments. Outbound shipments often leave via full truckload, less-than-truckload (LTL), or parcel carriers. Since distribution warehouses do jobs for multiple clients, one facility is usually able to offer all of the services required by a client regardless of complexity.

Receiving, processing, and shipping

Distribution warehouses receive shipments of goods at their dock. The goods are processed and put away. After some time the goods are picked and shipped.

Freight storage and consolidation

Freight is stored and consolidated at distribution warehouses until the goods are required for shipment. Some goods are stored until a predetermined time while other goods are indefinitely stored.
