The world of warehousing is big business, especially in Memphis, Tennessee. As a customer it can sometimes feel overwhelming or easy to get lost within the comings and goings of products, shipping, tracking, billing, carriers, packaging… and the list goes on.
Alert Terminal Warehouse is a “small” (65,000 sq ft), family owned and operated, public warehouse that specializes in personal attention. We are large enough to ship and receive full loads..

There’s no need to ship and store by the pallet-load to utilize our public warehouse logistics team at Alert Terminal Warehouse. Though pallet storage and shipment is often the first thought when talking 3rd party logistics, we handle small parcel shipments daily for our customer accounts routing transit through multiple small parcel carriers. Being a small to mid-sized distribution center ourselves, we are able to ship and provide storage fo..

After some short discussion, I bought these two domains the other day. One day I might make some kind of comprehensive history of how Memphis came to to be the warehousing and logistics capital of the US and nearly the world. Or I might just leave them pointed to our existing website. Time is of limited supply of course, since we always have so much shipping, pick and pack, and order fulfillment to do. We just finished up several short-term war..

How did we get so great at warehousing, you ask? Simple! We provide excellent service. We treat our customers the way we want to be treated when we’re the customer. I always ask myself “Would I like this if I were the customer?” and if the answer is no, I figure something else out. But service isn’t just the ‘above and beyond’; we answer the phone when it rings, return emails quickly, and myriad other small things it’s just taken for granted yo..

Our niche in the Memphis warehousing industry has long been the small customer, and this is an idea that has served us well since we’ve been doing it since the 1950s. Typically, we’re a good fit for the people who’ve been putting their own product in boxes and shipping from the garage on the weekends but can’t keep up and need to move to the next level. We have the warehousing space, the best location in the US, and the expertise to help you sc..

Did you know we store things outside? It’s a revolutionary approach to storage that we came up with ourselves; we put items suitable for storage outdoors on our lot behind the warehouse and leave them there until instructed to do otherwise. Sometimes this is entire containers, sometimes only a few tons worth of stuff, it all depends on your need, so give me a shout if you have something you need stored outdoors but find yourself short of empty ..

In addition to warehousing and related services, we also have soft hearts for sweet puppy dogs. This sweet guy ran inside when we opened the door during a rain shower and proceeded to play and display general good dog behavior, so we’ve taken him to the vet to get shots and be boarded until we can find him a home.

We’re not a huge public warehouse by any means, but staying on the smaller side has its advantages. For us, we’re able to move quickly and offer a higher level of service when it comes to order fulfillment, pick and pack shipping, and same day shipping requests. This translates to a value add for our partners since they can call and get the owners of our company anytime, since we’re the ones answering the phone. We also don’t have impossible to..

Memphis wins. Well, at least when it comes to warehouse space, warehousing services, third party logistics, and other logistical advantages. Memphis has everyone else beat. Why else would FedEx’s world headquarters be here? From Memphis, you can get freight and parcels to 80% of the US population in 48 hours or less with standard service. You can also get expedited service to the continental US the next morning. We have mild weather, so we don’..
