Modern, Efficient Facilities
We can manage your warehouse assets, or move the inventory to our facilities. Many of our customers freed up considerable capital by selling their warehouses. Ward has 475,000 square feet of general warehouse space in multiple large facilities in Altoona. Some of our facilities meet food-grade and pharmaceutical-grade standards.
Our warehouses are equipped with inside rail spurs, indoor flatbed docks and high bay ground level doors. This allows us to handle seven modes of transportation out of a single distribution facility. These warehouses are all supported by Radio Frequency Technology to provide you with real time inventory status updates through our website.
In addition, the warehouse software supports all types of vendor compliance needs, such as all EDI transactions sets, UCC128 labels, HTML format, RFID retail tracking and VICS BOL compliance.
The distribution facilities are also equipped with forklifts, roll clamps, reach trucks, squeeze trucks, carton clamps, double pallet handlers, and drum clamps to handle your valuable inventory safely and efficiently.
Ward has the warehousing solutions, expertise, and tools to manage your supply chain needs while reducing your total cost of ownership. Talk to us today about your short-term needs, or about your long- term logistics requirements.
