As a comprehensive warehouse distribution logistics partner, Allen Distribution possesses the flexibility to tailor solutions according to your unique material handling requirements. For sizable businesses, we offer high volume full pallet shipments to optimize service by minimizing ordering frequencies. Simultaneously, we extend case pick options to accommodate the more modest business.
If you are an e-commerce seller, you can benefit from these handling options to improve inventory management efficiency, minimize out-of-stock, and enhance service levels in this rapidly growing consumer category.
All inbound and outbound pallets are 100% RF scanned, meticulously checked for inventory accuracies and thoroughly inspected for potential damage during transit.
Among our diverse range of customers, we see consistent patterns of distributors and/or retailers in the industry requiring a higher level of case pick. In many situations, we pick products at the case level with multiple SKUs per pallet that are being prepared for final store delivery.
