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.”
