Why More and More Companies Like Yours Are Outsourcing Their Logistics Functions
In an ideal world, logistics managers would preside over a seamless system of continuous product flow. There would be no need for contingency plans, repackaging, re-labeling, warehousing or complicated distribution plans. The word “inventory” would refer strictly to work in progress. Raw materials would appear just as you need them, and product would leave your assembly lines on a direct route to your customer.
In the real world, your customers seem to grow more demanding by the hour. They want you to create and manage more SKUs, accommodate fluctuating demand, provide special labeling for international markets, repackage product in dozens of custom configurations, make more frequent shipments of smaller orders, and achieve quality and accuracy approaching perfection. And they want you to do it in less time and at lower costs than ever before.
At Twin City Warehouses we understand these challenges well, and we can deliver the results you want quickly, easily and cost-effectively.
Minimize Your Capital Investment in Logistics
Logistics services—packaging, distribution and storage—are typically very labor- and capital-intensive. It takes a flexible, well-trained staff and a reliable source of skilled labor to handle materials and fulfillment efficiently. It costs a lot of money to build, equip and maintain a state of the art packaging and distribution center—money you could invest in other, more profitable resources.
Use Only What You Need Only When You Need It
When you buy logistics services from Twin City, you use—and pay for—only the space, equipment and people you need, and only when you need them. We tailor our services to your exact specifications, whether handling a single task or your entire packaging and distribution operations. You never have to worry about under-utilized space or staff downtime.
Be More Flexible and Responsive to Your Customers
The best third-party logistics providers are flexible. At Twin City, we stand ready to design and deliver the services you need, literally on a moment’s notice. We respond quickly, doing whatever it takes to get the job done. Our goal is to exceed your expectations—and the expectations of your most demanding customers.
Benefit From Our Expertise and Efficiency
For more than two decades, Twin City Warehouses has been in the logistics business. We serve our customers by maintaining the highest levels of expertise, flexibility and efficiency possible in our industry. We pride ourselves on having what it takes to get the job done for our customers, no matter what their packaging and logistics needs may be.
Focus Your Resources on the Things You Do Best
When you take a do-it-yourself approach to logistics management, you divert key resources away from your core business. When you leave your packaging and logistics management to Twin City, letting us do what we do best, you free yourself to concentrate on doing what you do best.
Why We’re Your Best Choice as a Full-Service Logistics Partner
Anyone with a building and some forklifts can claim to be in the logistics business, but the quality of service can vary widely. For example, of the 550,000 warehouses in the United States, fewer than 20 percent are automated. Many are relatively new and unsophisticated in their methods, offering only the most basic, most limited services and lacking even rudimentary quality assurance programs.
We Have Lots of Experience and a Great Track Record to Go With It
For more than 20 years Twin City has earned a reputation for superior service that places us among the leading providers in our industry. Through our memberships in the Southeast Warehouse Association and the North Carolina
Warehouse Association, we stay abreast of the latest developments in the logistics industry. Our responsiveness, our entrepreneurial attitude, our reliability, our focus on total customer satisfaction—these are the things that make us your best choice as a logistics partner.
