Why Dual Warehouse?

Strategic warehousing locations for faster distribution at a lower cost

Apr 10, 2015
There are many very good reasons to use a 3PL company, but in my mind, nothing stands out like the dual warehouse model. I know I have talked about this before, but it is so important that it is worth repeating. It is one of the main reasons I chose this industry after retiring from FedEx. Fred Smith, the founder of FedEx and one of our most brilliant minds in shipping and business in general, stated that the dual warehouse model is greatly impacting the industry he created, reducing the need for Express delivery.

Another great company, Amazon.com has raised the bar for everyone with their 19 warehouses in the US which offers very fast delivery for a very low cost as zone charges are greatly reduced. In many cases, shippers can offer shipping for free. Fred Smith and Jeff Bezos changed the world’s expectations in commerce and how we get our products. They both saw the need to improve service but at a reasonable cost and what they created as the exception is now the standard.

I remember talking to a customer who is located in the Pacific Northwest about East Coast sales. He told me that they don’t even try to compete there as all else is equal, but they get killed on shipping. Instead of looking for a solution, he conceded that market to his competitors out there.

Who can afford to do that? Can you? The good news is that you don’t have to.
