15 years in business...who would've thunk it?

On July 1st...Warehouse Basics, Inc. will be celebrating their official 15th year since incorporating in Georgia.  My how time flys when you are having this much fun.

The last couple of years have been a little tougher as the economy continues to struggle along, however, with the team that continues to gut it out everyday, we are making a difference.

We have had some good years and we have had our share of some lean years, but I would not change a thing.  The learning experience of having some of the best customers you could imagine make getting up each day a pleasure.  Something to look forward to, and getting paid for what you love to to...it just doesn't get much better.

I want to take the time to say thank-you to all our customers...current, past, and hopefully future prospects.  Thanks to our employees, vendors, suppliers, and all who have contributed to the success of Warehouse Basics, Inc.

In particular, I want to thank Ken Watkins, my partner, and most of all, the glue that has made the company what it is today.  I just recently returned from a two month sabbatical, along with a trip to Alaska.  To be able to do that after 42 years of working is nothing short of phenomenal, knowing the company was in good hands while I was off.  Thanks Ken.

With continuing our push to lower costs, increase revenues through crossdocking, fulfillment, warehousing and distribution, the future looks bright.  Our entire team is hitting on all cylinders, and we seem to have the right people on the bus in the right seats...Hold on, 25 years is just around the corner.

Need any help with warehousing, crossdocks, distribution, fulfillment, inventory management, or other supply chain or logistics solutions....give us a call @ 404 346-1848 or see more info at www.warehousebasics.com

Warehouse Basics, Inc. knows "Crossdocking"

Crossdocking in Atlanta, GA

Have you ever arrived at destination and were told the customer can't take the load?  Might be a couple of days before they will...who are you going to call?  You have another appointment for a pick-up at another location...full trailer, and now your stuck...Well are you really?

Nope...just call Warehouse Basics, Inc.  404 346-1848

We will unload your trailer, get you on your way, and re-deliver the freight to your customer when he can accept it.  This is a typical "Crossdock" situation.

Typical minimum charge is $150.00 for a palletized load up to 24 pallets for the unloading and the re-loading at our facility.  Re-delivery and transportation charges will be based on destination.

We will hold your freight up to 3 business days with no additional storage charges.

That is just over $3.00 per pallet handling in and the same out for handling an emergency and keeping the truck on-time to meet all your financial responsibilities. 

Flexibility, reliability, and overall ability to unload, load, provide all appropriate paperwork and communication to you and the customer is what we do.

Open Monday to Friday 7:30 am - 5:00 pm we can react to most needs.  Typical in and out of the building in under 2 hours...most of the time under one hour.  Help us help you solve this appointment problem.  Want to know more click here...http://mce_temp_url/
