We also provide this service for other customers who need a place to ship parcel goods from many vendors and ..

Recently UPS and FedEx both have switched to dimensional weight pricing when it comes to shipping parcels. It sounds more complicated than it is, but to sum it up: companies are apparently more likely to ship twenty-five 2 pound boxes rather than one well-packed fifty pound box, which tends to take up more room on the delivery truck, so they are charging more for the space a package takes up relative to its weight. Now, if you’re like our custo..
If you’re looking for a public warehouse in Memphis, you have lots of options. If you’re a small company looking for just a little warehousing space, however, your options are somewhat less plentiful.
