If you aren’t already utilizing Dallas warehousing and distribution strategies for your business, we’ll put it simply for you: You’re missing out. Every business operating in the DFW area knows that competition is fierce, and the only way to survive is to remain steadfastly focused on providing the best service and the best product to beat your competitors and improve your bottom line.

 

That’s putting it simply.

 

The truth is, the Metroplex business market is complex. It serves over 7.5 million people and spans nearly 13,000 miles. Covering all your bases is not only difficult, but impossible to do alone. That’s where a third party logistics partner with Fort Worth and Dallas warehousing and distribution experience comes into play. A 3PL partner could mean the difference between surviving the new year and thriving in it. If you’re still a little unsure about whether a DFW warehousing and distribution provider can benefit your business, ask yourself these questions:

 

  • What is it costing you in maintenance?

If you’re currently operating your own warehouse and fleet, you know that maintenance is costly. Whether it's preventative or responsive, maintenance is a difficult task to say the least. Expenses quickly add up when you consider contracting out the work, providing the materials for upgrades, and the time it takes to ensure everything is in working order every step of the way.

  • How much are you spending on rent?

If you’re handling your own storage and shipping processes, chances are you’re renting space and vehicles. This is a serious money pit, not to mention unnecessary.  Hiring out your warehousing and shipping services can present a major cost savings to your company. Not only will you  save after removing these lines from your budget, you’ll gain an experienced crew who can handle the logistics behind warehousing and fulfillment. This type of support is included in your agreement with your courier.

  • Do you make the best use of your space?

Let’s face it. If you haven’t Kon Marie’d your home, you probably haven’t done so at the office. Which means there’s no way you’re using your space efficiently. (Keeping product in piles around the waiting area doesn’t count.) You’re paying for every square foot in your facility, so shouldn’t you be allocating that space wisely? If you aren’t (and…honestly…you aren’t), let us do it. We’ll only charge you for the space you use, and with our experts, we can efficiently store your items to save you money and the stress of finding products and fulfilling orders.

  • How many salaried workers are consumed with warehousing tasks?

Paying for the warehouse and fleet is the tip of the iceberg. Now you have to find someone to manage and secure the warehouse, pick and pack items, and deliver them to your customers. Or…you don’t do any of that, and you leave it to the experts like Eagle Express. Don’t forget that salaries aren’t all of your expenses with these employees. Compensation packages are typically the greatest expense for employees. But handing these tasks off to a third party removes these roles from your payroll and puts money back into your business.

 

 

If you want your business to thrive in 2020, you’re going to need to ask yourself some tough questions. But if you’re honest, we’re sure you’ll see how beneficial a Dallas warehousing and distribution expert can be for your organization.

 

Get your core competencies back into focus, and let a 3PL partner tackle the storing, picking, packing, and shipping. Your customers are served quickly and accurately by friendly professionals, and your focus remains where it should- on producing a great product.
