On the Border: Warehousing in Laredo
By: Nathan Jones
When it comes to warehousing, many companies simply look to store materials until they need their products. At Automated Logistics Systems, we aim to make our warehouse a tool you can utilize to help your business become more efficient. With 80,000 ft² of warehouse storage space, our warehousing in Laredo, Texas provides a safe and convenient location to store your products close to the Mexican border. We look to provide flexibility to suit your needs with hours for loading and unloading that can accommodate whenever your materials need moving.
Warehousing is more than a pit stop for your products. It is an opportunity in your supply chain to create value for your company. To do this properly you need a special team at a special warehouse. An impressive feature at the ALS warehouse that cannot be found just anywhere are our two overhead cranes as well as a 60,000-pound forklift and two 5,000-pound forklifts.
Our team can live load and unload as well as take your shipments off the truck and store them briefly until a second truck is ready to pick up. With our consolidation service, we set up local delivery to move your products straight to your doorstep. We also provide a sophisticated inventory system that allows you to check on your inventory at any time, day or night.
