Dallas Courier, Warehouse in DFW

When you are looking to purchase or rent a home, you undoubtedly have a list of specifications you’re looking for. Maybe you prefer a two story with four bedrooms, or perhaps you’re more into a one story ranch style home with a large porch. You probably have a requirement for location, square footage, proximity to schools and shopping…the list goes on.

 

You have stringent requirements to ensure you’re comfortable in your home, so shouldn’t you do the same for your cargo? Your important products don’t need to sit in just any old musty storage unit. Keep your items comfortable by finding just the right warehouse for short or long term storage.

 

As you seek out your new digs, consider these points of interest:

 

FDA Certification

If you’re moving to a warehouse or storing in a warehouse any type of food, beverage, or medicine, the space needs to be certified by the Food and Drug Administration. This protects consumers who will eventually be ingesting these materials. Failure to adhere to these strict standards could mean fines for both the warehouse provider and the consumer utilizing the space.

 

Temperature Control

In the Texas heat, temperature control is necessary for items that don’t normally require such specifications. Items that normally are shelf stable can be damaged when exposed to the high and low temperatures that can occur in the North Texas region. The solution to preventing all types of items from spoiling is to store them in a temperature controlled warehouse.

 

Fast in and Out Service

Whether your items are in storage for a long time or a little time, when it’s time for them to move, you don’t want to have to wait around for the right vehicle or operator to get on your way. A warehouse that offers fulfillment services can move your items quickly, any time of day or night. With the right vehicle and the right driver on call, a professional delivery team can transport your goods 24/7, no appointment necessary.

 

Prime Location

DFW is already a prime location for business. Nearly every major US city is just a short, 4 hour flight. We also have access to rail and shipping ways. It makes sense that businessowners want to operate out of DFW. But if you’re not running a brick and mortar location in North Texas, you’re not out of luck. A great warehousing and fulfillment team location in this booming region can move your products to your customers quickly on your behalf.

 

Security

One of the most important factors to consider when selecting a warehouse is whether or not it is secure. Seek out a location that is staffed with trained and licensed professionals. If you’re storing medical items, a HIPAA and OSHA certified team is necessary to ensure your items are cared for properly and your patients’ privacy is kept. Lastly, your warehousing team needs to be fully insured with a variety of policies from A-rated providers. In the event of an accident or loss of cargo, you want the assurance that your warehousing team can make reparations quickly and responsibly.
