What Do President’s Day and DFW Warehousing Services Have in Common?

Dallas Courier, DFW Warehousing ServicesHere at Dallas Courier, we get compared to a lot of things.


You could compare us to other couriers across Dallas Fort Worth, albeit, we’d never come up short. You could compare us to superheroes, as we often swoop in and save the day with urgent delivery options for your most sensitive cargo. You could even compare us to family, as that is how we prefer to treat our clients.


But comparing us to a federal holiday such as President’s Day? That might be a stretch! Or, is it?


Our DFW warehousing services team might actually have more in common with this February day of honor than what might appear on the surface. Let’s explore.


For starters, a little background on President’s Day is in order. It dates way back to 1800. Our Nation’s first president George Washington died in 1799, and his birthday, February 22nd, became a day of remembrance. It didn’t earn the title of a federal holiday until 1879, and it wasn’t until 1885 that the holiday expanded to the entire nation, and not just to the District of Columbia.


In the 1960s, government employees figured out that celebrating holidays on specific days made it tough for the work week. For example, when February 22nd fell on a Tuesday, federal offices opening on Monday, closing, and then opening for the rest of the week became cumbersome. This is when the Uniform Monday Holiday Act was proposed, shifting certain federal holidays from specific dates to a set of predetermined Mondays. This is when Lincoln’s birthday (February 12) and Washington’s birthday (February 22) became merged into the third Monday in February.


Some states began adding in other important figures. For example, Arkansas celebrates Washington and federal rights activist Daisy Gatson Bates. Alabama celebrates Washington and Thomas Jefferson. Most states, though, use this day as day of patriotism and remembrance for some of our country’s most influential political leaders. It’s a singular holiday that serves many purposes, and can be uniquely suited to meet the needs of the individual states.


Similarly, our DFW warehousing services are carried out by a single organization, Dallas Courier, who never hands your deliveries off to a third party. We also offer unique services that can be combined and rearranged to meet the needs of our individual customers. You could say that the level of service we provide is…presidential!


At the very basic level, our warehousing team can store your items for a little bit of time, or a long time. From there, customers can add on services to meet their specific needs. This includes fulfillment options, such as pick and pack services. Your items live at our centrally located and secure warehouse, and when you need them moved, we’re available 24/7 to pick the items, securely package them, and ship them to your desired location.


Our warehousing services also include crossdocking options. Your items spend as little time as possible in our warehouse (which we don’t take personally!), and they’re received, organized, and repackaged in a different vehicle so they can be out for delivery in as little as a few hours’ time.


Our DFW warehousing services are so extensive, that by partnering with our Dallas Courier team, you can have an entire operation in our local North Texas area without actually being physically present here. Thanks to our expert team of transportation and logistics providers, we can operate on your behalf, receiving, storing, and shipping your product to your local DFW customers while you stay put in your current location.


That sounds downright presidential, doesn't it? Ready to get started on your DFW delivery plan? Contact Dallas Courier today!
