New Markets

Are you considering expanding your business into new geographic areas? How will that impact customer service and the corporate balance sheet? Companies growing into new markets typically find it involves many fixed costs, especially in the area of inventory placement. Transportation Insight offers something different with its network of over 80 warehouse locations across North America. You only pay for the space you use as you use it. There are no long-term commitments and no residual cost if you later decide to leave the market.Since our warehouse network aligns with our domestic and international service platforms, Transportation Insight helps position your just-in-time inventory at optimal points to end markets and major customers. Transportation Insight has the ability to grow into any needed market within 30 days.


Seasonal & Overflow

One of the biggest challenges shippers have is the ability to respond quickly and confidently to expansions, contractions and seasonal inventory variability that impact warehousing. Our LEAN-based warehousing solutions allow you to secure additional short-term space in new markets at a reasonable rate. Access to inventory volume and activity is available through our cloud-based WMS system even on seasonal overflow projects. We also help you solve difficult needs with warehousing bulky, non-conveyable products.

Import Deconsolidation

Along with Transportation Insight’s complete array of domestic and international transportation services, we provide unique solutions regarding import containers. Our network of providers, 14 of which operate in US port locations, are fully functional in all matters relating to import containers. Services include everything from basic sort and segregation, palletizing, stretch wrapping services, to product sub assembly, inspection, and labeling. Many regard this specialization as being limited to port cities, but our network has these capabilities in each US location. When it comes to export containers and off-shore services, each of our 14 port operations is equally capable in container consolidation services.
