Our Warehousing and Distribution Capabilities

Small package warehousing

Maintain a buffer inventory and avoid supply chain disruptions with our small package warehousing capabilities. Our extensive in-house carrier and broker system allows for release and delivery of merchandise on demand.

Cross-docking

In need of a quick turnaround? Cross-docking — a common practice of LTL shipping — minimizes or eliminates warehousing costs by transferring inventory directly from one or more inbound trucks into one or more outbound trucks. Used to both consolidate and deconsolidate shipments, cross-docking is a mainstay of hub-and-spoke distribution models.

Transloading

When a shipment cannot make it all the way from Point A to Point B in the same fashion (such as in a cargo container carried via ocean freight), transloading reconfigures it so it is compatible with the type and size of vehicle that ultimately can — for instance, transferring to a pallet that can fit in a semi-trailer.

National Logistic Network's warehousing capabilities extend beyond storage, although we do offer that both short- and long-term. NLN also specializes in cross-docking and transloading, which help quickly reconfigure shipments so they can continue on to their destinations with minimal delay.
