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.

If you’re a small business or start-up looking ..

What is 3PL? It’s a bit of an odd acronym for third party logistics, which warehouses and transportation companies provide to many customers, lowering the cost for each as opposed to that company doing it themselves. Ideally, a public warehouse like us and others here in Memphis provide pick and pack, relabeling, order fulfillment, and other services to many different customers and they all share the mutual benefit of a lower cost by having us ..
What is pick and pack, you ask? It’s a snappy name for an order fulfillment service we offer here at our warehouse in Memphis, TN. Basically, a customer sends in several items (or more) in full pallet quantities, then sends in orders for different combinations of those items to be sent to their customers. The picking and packing part comes in when we locate the specific items and quantities and assemble the order for shipping. The order amounts..
