AW2: A Leader in the Warehousing Industry

October 14, 2019 | Posted in Company News & Updates

Warehousing is an important contributor to a successful business. According to the United States Department of Labor’s website, warehouses are “…primarily engaged in operating warehousing and storage facilities for general merchandise, refrigerated goods, and other warehouse products. These establishments provide facilities to store goods.”

They are not tasked with selling the goods they store, but instead to keep them secure. It is their responsibility to help your business succeed. In addition to making sure your merchandise is safe, they can also “…provide a range of services, often referred to as logistics services, related to the distribution of goods. Logistics services can include labeling, breaking bulk, inventory control and management, light assembly, order entry and fulfillment, packaging, pick and pack, price marking and ticketing, and transportation arrangement.

However, establishments in this industry group always provide warehousing or storage services in addition to any logistic services. Furthermore, the warehousing or storage of goods must be more than incidental to the performance of services, such as price marking.” As you know, AW2 fulfills this definition as a warehouse, but they do so much more than that.

Here are four reasons why AW2 has earned its position as a leader in the warehousing industry:

Dedicated to Their Customers

AW2 has a vested interest in their customers and takes the time to provide the exemplary service they expect. Their mission is to “…provide a customer relocation or logistics experience that is positively remarkable in all the ways important to our client.” In order to make this happen, AW2 takes care to pair their “…best operations teams with exceptional support services that are second to none in the industry.”

Having first opened their doors in 1946, they have over 70 years of experience on how to make you as the customer pleased with their services. They do this through their “…commitment to continuous improvement, a desire to learn and a willingness to listen.”

Class A Warehouse Space

In addition to providing their clients with great customer service, AW2 also ensures their warehouses abide by the highest standards. Their warehouses have the unique space to provide for the security of all types of merchandise, no matter the size or special storing/handling needs.

Unlike many warehouses, AW2 exceeds the necessary safety and sanitation standards. They have Class A food-grade facilities as well. Not only are their warehouses Class A quality, but they are at costs affordable to businesses of all sizes. In addition to these standards, they also provide pallets, skids and cradles to minimize your amount of warehouse footprint.

Accurate Inventory

With a warehouse’s main purpose being to keep business’ goods secure, AW2 takes all the measures to make sure your merchandise is accounted for. They follow multiple processes and procedures. Through their dedication, they have a 99.7 percent inventory accuracy rate. To make this happen, they do daily cycle counting, inbound and outbound audits, quarterly mini physical inventories, time and date stamping for incoming shipments and using mobile scanning to improve their accuracy. Your merchandise is in good hands when it is at an AW2 warehouse.

More Than A Storage Facility

AW2 is one of the leaders in their industry because they go above and beyond to make sure their clients receive the service they deserve. They have several “added services” at each client’s disposal.

The first of many is that they will take time out of their day to review your company’s processes to find “ways to deliver them more smoothly and cost-effectively.” They offer “job-only labor costs,” so you can pay for the labor you need on an hourly basis. Even though they store your merchandise, AW2 makes sure it reaches you at the highest quality possible through reducing the number of touchpoints it goes through.

Not only do they store and deliver your products, but they also unload it once it arrives at your facility according to your instructions. Their dedicated teams take the time to “…turn bulk shipments into customer-ready products” and break them down into smaller containers. Finally, AW2 labels all of your merchandise to assist with inventory tracking and supply chain management.

AW2 is one of the nation’s leading warehouses for businesses. They care about their clients, have Class A warehouse space, take accurate inventory of your products on a daily basis and offer added services for your convenience. What are you waiting for?
