Warehousing & Fulfillment

Overview

We provide warehousing and storage services for a variety of goods and products in a clean and well-organized warehouse. In addition, we maintain very high security and personnel standards. Both short term and long-term warehousing and storage are available.

Pick-n-Pack allows you to import or send us product in larger lots, saving money by eliminating excess transportation and brokerage fees.

We receive your shipping instructions (e.g., packing slips) by fax or e-mail, then pick, pack and ship from your USA warehouse. This allows you to quickly respond to your customer by getting product out with the certainty of no border hang-ups. More importantly, it frees up your valuable time for sales and marketing.
