When dealing with a new area or any number of areas across the country, it can be difficult to decide on a warehousing company or region when you are unfamiliar with the resources there. Get to know the top cities for warehousing services in Kentucky with a variety of useful information provided below.
Kentucky is a great location to consider for your warehousing needs, as its viable locations span over most of the state. However, be wary when searching that you don’t waste your time on companies that have simply used the word warehouse in their title or name. For some reason, there are several like this in the state. This would be easily noticed eventually, but better to spot it right away and not waste valuable time.
When seeking out full-service public warehousing, consider all of your needs and look for the company that satisfies the highest quantity with quality results. Location is not everything. Does the warehouse deal in all of your product types? Are they known for customer service? Keep in mind that their customer service would soon be identified as your customer service as well. Are they flexible when special orders or eccentric clients come into play?
It’s challenging to quote statistics on the warehousing industry in Kentucky, since the data compiled includes transportation, because of the connection between actual warehousing and the delivery to and from warehouses and customers. That being said, wages and activity in both transportation and warehousing in Kentucky have steadily grown since 1998, which is a clear sign of success and progress in any field. Why would wages be important to you? There are two reasons. Happy employees are working hard, taking care with your product and treating your customers right. An industry that can pay their employees well, is definitely doing something right. Employee retention keeps operations running smoothly with less chance of error or delays sometimes caused by new employees. These facts would not typically indicate a group of companies who are not satisfying their customers.
Lexington & Louisville, Kentucky
Lexington and Louisville are both large and well-known cities in the state of Kentucky. Both provide a comparable number of options for warehousing needs, but Louisville is on the Indiana border and therefore has that state’s needs to consider as well. For this reason Lexington may be the better choice with more supply when paired with potentially less demand.
While Lexington and Louisville are the largest cities in the state, there are several options spread around the remaining area, which makes the whole state great for warehousing.
Elizabethtown is probably the next best option as far as having a number of warehousing and distribution locations. These locations have taken care to highlight their distribution services as well.
Florence & Frankfurt, Kentucky
Florence and Frankfurt are going to be the smallest of cities that have more than one option for warehousing in Kentucky.
There are several smaller towns in northern Kentucky, just bordering Cincinnati, Ohio, all with warehousing facilities available.
Kentucky is unusual in that they have warehousing locations all over the state, in small, obscure places that you might not expect. Towns like Russellville, Hebron and Murray are just a few. Keep in mind that these smaller suggestions are often owned and managed by larger firms with warehousing all over the country, so their location does not indicate a lack of experience or capability.
