Portland Distribution and Contract Warehousing
Bridgeport Distribution, Inc. provides contract warehousing services which handles shipping, receiving, and storage of products on a contract basis. The wide range of services we offer include everything from pick and pack, to customer service, to transportation planning. You may also use our modern warehousing facilities for fast, low-cost distribution in many major markets. We can stock, manage and distribute your inventory to your specifications. Clients can commit to a specific period of time (generally in years) for these services. Fees may be transaction and storage based, fixed, cost plus, or any combination. Our services are comprehensive and customizable.
We offer contract warehousing as an attractive alternative for companies seeking to out-source their warehousing and distribution functions and take advantage of our Portland, Oregon distribution center, among others. Our service allows customers to focus their attention on the strengths of their own business. Bridgeport Distribution’s unique approach to setting up a contract warehousing model gives you the flexibility you need to ensure cost-effective warehouse operations are established and risks are shared.
What are the advantages of contract warehousing? First, the lower labor costs and reduced exposure to Worker’s Compensation. Also, there are increased opportunities to capture and control costs, as well as a reduction in the administrative burdens associated with managing a large labor force. Our detailed dashboard and KPI (key performance indicators) metrics helps the entire process in many ways. We are proud of our Portland, Oregon facilities’ distribution functions and use of Best in Industry practices.
Facilities can include secured trailer parking, high cubed rack environment, double deep-narrow aisle; high density storage, food-grade warehousing meeting AIB standards, temperature (38 degrees F to 65 degrees F) and humidity controlled environments; ICC lights & locks, rail sidings, sprinkler systems exceed factory mutual standards and much more.
Sanitation should be a top priority in any contract warehousing operation. As food inventory experts, cleanliness should include a sanitation program which includes full-time, licensed and certified janitorial staff, installation and proper maintenance of a pest control barrier around the perimeter of every warehouse. Other precautions include daily visual audits to prevent harborage problems. The buildings themselves should also have proper and routine maintenance including painting, rack repairs, dock repairs and general maintenance.
Security is also a very important factor for Portland distribution and warehousing. Items such as guard controlled gates, 24/7 on-site security management including site and video surveillance and central station monitored alarm systems have proven to be very effective. Some contract warehousing facilities also provide digital imaging of transport drivers and documentation, controlled access using biometric and keyless technology, and a fire system with ERS sprinklers.
