Dallas Courier, Warehouse Storage in DFW  With a region of over 7.4 million people, and growing, Dallas Fort Worth can get a little crowded. This should come as no surprise to anyone who has been on the High Five during rush hour, or stuck paying to park on the North Dallas Tollway at any given point on the weekend.


Space is a commodity around these parts. Especially storage space.


Thankfully, you have someone on your side. Well, chances are with over 7 million people, there will be someone on either side of you, as well as in front of you and behind you. But what we mean is that you have a team in your corner when it comes to warehousing and fulfillment, as well as short and long term storage.


Dallas Courier, your number one full service transportation and logistics provider in the Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex has over 35 years of experience serving the unique needs of North Texans. And now that the secret is out- that DFW is the best place to live and work- more and more folks are taking advantage of third party logistics providers like Dallas Courier.


While we can offer you a variety of services, each uniquely combined to serve the needs of your business, one of the highlights of our offerings is warehouse storage in DFW. With a centrally located, secure warehouse and 24/7 access for our professional team members and our clients, Dallas Courier has warehousing locked down.


We’re willing and able to hang on to your items for just a few hours with our crossdocking services, or we can keep them for extended periods of time, with long term storage options. Since we’ve got your commercial storage needs mastered, maybe you’ll have some extra time to take a look at the storage in your own home. Food storage, for example.


Chances are, you’re storing these foods all wrong! But we’ll fill you in on how to make it right:


Cheese: Did you know that cheese needs to breathe? If you wrap cheese too tightly in plastic wrap or in a plastic bag, it will dry out faster. Instead, store it in cheese paper or parchment paper.



Brown sugar: Ever go to use your brown sugar and notice it has turned into a fossil? Avoid this by storing it in an airtight container with something moist, like a marshmallow or a slice of bread. The sugar will absorb the moisture, keeping it soft for use.


Real maple syrup: Unopened, this product will last forever in the pantry. Once opened, it will last a year in the refrigerator. If you use it sparingly, you can freeze it. True 100% syrup will not freeze.


Apples: Room temperature apples will last about a week, reaching peak ripeness after a few days. If you want them to last longer, store them in the refrigerator, preferably in the crisper drawer.


Fruits and veggies: Some fruits are better left on the counter, like bananas, for example. Others, like the apples above, are best left in the refrigerator. But never leave fruits and veggies next to one another in the fridge. They emit different gases, which will cause them both to spoil faster.


Onions and potatoes: Both of these products require good circulation, and a cool, dark, dry place outside of the refrigerator. But, unfortunately although they require the same climate, they cannot be stored together. They will ripen and spoil too quickly.


Lettuce: Let us tell you about lettuce- take it out of the plastic bag you bought it in. Wash it, and let it dry, then return it to the refrigerator in a paper bag or bowl.


Storage can be a tough topic to understand. Thankfully, our Dallas Courier team has your warehouse storage in DFW covered, and, thanks to today’s informative post, you have food in your own house figured out, as well.
