What Is Contract Warehousing?
A third party warehouse that allows all of a company’s inventory to be stored in one place and in convenient proximity to transportation, contract warehousing has seen a dramatic rise since the 1980s. While storage used to operate on 30 day contracts needed monthly renewal and included very little services outside of just storage, contract warehousing is a near permanent arrangement that often includes a slew of additional options like packaging, shipping, handling, inventory management and more. Bonded Service provides one of the most extensive and professional contract warehousing services in the Atlanta and Savannah areas, with full services for companies of any size including our own in house labor force that it at your service.
