Satisfying multiple customer demands, managing supply chain complexity, dealing with volatile cost factors — it’s what we specialize in.

Our warehouses provide short and long-term storage, fulfillment services, cross-docking, transloading, and shuttle services; powering flexibility throughout our network of warehouse storage and distribution locations with EDI capabilities.

Partnering with a 3PL (third party logistics) partner like Spartan Logistics helps to lower your warehousing and overhead costs with no capital investment and maintenance of a brick and mortar building. Our warehouse services are unique, and we assign a team of experienced warehouse professionals to oversee your valued commodity. We store a vast array of inventory for our clients, and our warehouse storage and distribution services are unique to each client.  You shouldn't have to worry about storage overhead, peak season, or inventory control. Spartan raises the bar on a myriad of customized warehouse services throughout our network of strategically placed locations.

We perform many functions for our customers at a lower cost than they could if they were to use their own facilities and employees to perform the same tasks. Working with a 3PL that has its own national fulfillment warehouse network can get you closer to your customers without the need for a substantial infrastructure investment. Our locations are within one day delivery to 2/3 of the U.S. population.

Our turnkey 3PL services include:

Public Warehousing 

If your company is required to rent warehouse space or add short-term storage, Spartan provides control over your excess inventory and delivery to local customers in case of a temporary need. Whether you are storing overrun production, saving inventory for upcoming projects, or relocating product between locations, we help you find a secure and controlled environment best suited to your needs.

Public warehousing provides scalability to your supply chain by adding specialization, flexibility, lower costs and a host of other benefits.

Contract Warehouse Space

Contract warehousing provides dedicated, long-term outsourced logistics for companies who need a complete supply chain solution.  Benefits of this include long-term price predictability, inventory control, and dedicated storage space without a large initial investment during peak seasons. We consistently manage volume spikes and outbound shipments at a moments notice, improving the flow of goods for our customers.

Cross Docking

With cross-docking, manufacturers and retailers can accelerate delivery of products to their customers, increase inventory output, and reduce shipping expenses. Cross docking will allow you to bypass storage charges from inbound shipments received at our docks. They are then unloaded and sorted for final delivery usually within 72 hours or less. Spartan's cross-docking turns logistics into a competitive edge for customers nationwide.

Cross-docking is especially helpful when products need to be sorted into smaller distribution areas or combined from manufacturing locations to one distribution center or market.

Benefits of cross-docking include but are not limited to:

  • Your trucks on the road quicker - If your drivers are late or early for appointment windows, we can receive goods at our facilities and get them back on the road sooner.  Since our Columbus, OH warehouses are just miles from the Amazon fulfillment center, we can expedite that for Amazon vendors.
  • Avoid demurrage charges - For import freight, we can unload containers as they arrive and reload into freight trucks scheduled for delivery.
  • Rework loads -  If your truck is overweight or over-axle weight, our cross dock facility can shift your load or remove items from the trailer to keep you safe and compliant.
  • Merge products in transit - If freight from multiple vendors is arriving from different places and destined for a customer in the Midwest, Spartan can combine shipments into one single delivery for your customers.
