Spartan Logistics was founded in 1988 in Columbus, Ohio as a warehouse and distribution provider to service the growing industrial base and logistically take advantage of Ohio’s centralized location. This positioned us well to grow to over 1.8 million square feet throughout Ohio and Indiana, as well as additional warehouse locations in South Carolina, North Carolina, Arkansas and Missouri. Spartan Logistics' sales focus has been handling of food grade materials, glass, paper and fragile/high value products. In addition to warehousing, Spartan Logistics provides fulfillment and full-service transportation, allowing us to provide seamless pick-up, storage and delivery to our customers.

Spartan Logistics has invested heavily in custom-designed inventory management software that provides a full range of warehouse management: billing, electronic data transmission, label generation, and online tracking capability. Spartan Logistics continuously improves supply chain flow for our customers by providing turnkey    3PL services and value added contributions like packing, quality control, co-packing, EDI integration, and inventory management. We are  able to scale your operations and meet demand peaks. These contributions have elevated Spartan Logistics to be recognized as a regional leader in the Columbus warehouse and logistics industry. We are proud members of both the IWLA and the Columbus Regional Logistics Council. Spartan Logistics is dedicated to being involved in the community through our employees. In South Carolina, North Carolina, Indiana and Arkansas we are proud of the positive impact Spartan Logistics warehouses have had as well.

Spartan remains privately owned and family-run, yet we’re well-positioned to provide the high-quality service of a national logistics provider at costs that add real value to your supply chain needs.
