Associates Warehousing Transloads First Bulk Meal Shipment

Associates Warehousing Transloads First Bulk Meal Shipment

At our Sewell, NJ location, we unloaded a 20' import container with 20 metric tons of high premium horse feed for thoroughbred horse farms in the Midwest.   With our specialized forklift bulk handler, this transload was successfully completed within two hours.

Transportation was arranged with a food grade bulk dumptruck trailer catered to the bulk feed trade for delivery to farm silo.

International bulk shipping is becoming a more common option in the agricultural industry.  A cost savings along with a sustainable alternative by avoiding packaging disposal for the farm.

Imported planting seed (soybean, corn, sunflower, and canola) arrive the Port of Philadelphia on an annual basis.  Associates Warehousing is prepared to handle all types of agricultural bulk products.  Please contact us for a quote.

Last month, Associates Warehousing had an Open House with attendance by local shippers, freight forwarders, steamship lines, and port authority. The gathering included a demonstration of Associate’s Warehousing Management System. The system operates in a real time RF environment, which allows customers to use Associates Warehousing as their go-to Third-Party Logistics company in the Philadelphia area checking their inventory 24/7 online.

Associates Warehousing, a fourth-generation family business since 1939, which includes William Parker Associates, container drayage operation, is enthusiastic for the future at hand. With their customers demanding the distribution of products in smaller quantities from pallets to individual cartons with multiple SKU’s, Associates has been able to provide this with the software’s modern technology design. Customers receive messages electronically when their inventory has arrived, been bar coded, and stored. Customers are able to then submit an order to be shipped either by Parcel or Less Than Load (LTL) pickup.

“With this additional location,” says Bill Parker Jr., President of Associates Warehousing “We are offering more modern warehouse space to the B2B wholesale fulfillment trade. We are hoping this center will attract companies that are taking advantage of the recent Panama Canal expansion and shift their products to the Port of Philadelphia/NJ region for distribution. This food grade fulfillment center will complement our Philadelphia Warehouses and enhance our position as a centralized gateway from the Port to Your Customer.”

Port of Philadelphia Service Testimonial

Before the Sealand Atlantico service started from Mexico last February,  the owner of Polimeros USA visited the Port of Philadelphia and met with the Philadelphia Regional Port Authority.  Port Stakeholders welcomed the opportunity to market their services and the benefits of the Port of Philadelphia with the anticipation of this new direct vessel service from Veracruz and Altamira.  Polimeros jumped on board with their import container shipments in the early stages of vessel arrivals.  Polimeros uses Associate's Drayage and Transloading services for distribution of their products.  Shipments are leaving Mexico and arriving to their customers throughout the U.S. within a 12 day time frame!   Please view this video.   Sincere thank you to Polimeros for their testimonial, pioneer thinking, and of course their business!  

Associates Warehousing appreciates your consideration as your 3PL provider.

Forever Marilyn

 There's No Business Like Show Business

William Parker Associates had the great pleasure to transport John Seward Johnson II's  26ft- tall, 17-ton statue of Marilyn Monroe!  Then she was transported by vessel to Australia.

The logistics behind Ms. Monroe's transportation took careful planning, packing, and transportation. For us though it was exciting. We love our work. Every day is something new and interesting to transport.  Please see below video in time lapse with the assembly of statue at Bendigo's art gallery in Australia...
