For years, warehousing was viewed as an expense to many businesses—just a necessity in the process of meeting clients’ needs. But increasingly, companies are realizing that strategic warehousing strategies contribute positively to their bottom line. Indeed, warehousing’s contributing role is better understood in supply chain management as a way to build that ever-important competitive advantage.
A growing number of companies realize the competitive advantages that come with a centralized warehouse and distribution center. Below are some of those advantages:
Instead of looking at warehousing as an ongoing expense—or worse, as something to hand over to a fulfillment company, thereby increasing their bottom line instead of yours—consider ways to turn your distribution strategy into a competitive advantage. Centralized warehousing can save costs, decrease necessary resources and improve customer service.
There’s no better place to consider a centralized warehouse solution than the Freeport Center in Clearfield, Utah. You can turn your warehousing into a competitive advantage with Utah’s favorable business climate and its status as a free port state. That means no inventory taxes are assessed on any inventory stored within the state.
The Freeport Center has 78 buildings ranging in size from 4,000 to 400,000 square feet on 680 acres—all situated in the middle of the major western U.S. markets, with the best business climate this side of the Mississippi.
