Warehousing

It is no secret that our main focus at Carter Logistics revolves around Lean Manufacturing principles such as our unique “Every Part, Every Day” Shared Milk Run system. However, we also understand that warehousing still serves a valuable purpose in our customers’™ logistics solutions. Therefore, we now offer warehousing services in multiple locations along the NAFTA Highway all of which provide easy access to interstate, rail, and air transportation. Typically our warehouse services are viewed as an “add-on” service to help meet the needs of special circumstances
such as:

• Overseas material or other long lead-time product
• Storage of obsolete products, machinery, or tooling
• Storage of additional safety stock unable to fit in a manufacturing facility
• Sequencing of material to serve as a JIT feeder
• Pick & Pack operations / Kitting
• Re-packaging into returnable containers (or into ocean worthy packaging)
• Vendor Managed Inventory

 

CUSTOMER-SPECIFIC WAREHOUSE SOLUTIONS

Every customer is faced with their own unique business challenges and thus every customer receives a unique value-added solution. We at Carter Logistics pride ourselves in developing “out of the box” answers for all of our customers’ demands. For example, our WMS software allows for multiple variations of warehouse services:

• Capable of receiving numerous types of data input— X12 EDI, XML, ASCII Text, etc.
• Capable of receiving and transmitting advanced shipping notifications (ASN’s)
• Web-based inventory management
• Ability to update most Business Management Software programs
• Ability to receive products in piece or skid quantities
• Ability to create customer-specific packing slips and documentation
• Flexibility in invoice methods
