Warehousing | Distribution
We operate over a million square feet of space throughout the Southeast. All of our facilities are staffed with courteous and customer-focused personnel ready to receive, store and ship your valuable assets.
Sustainable Export Packaging
Our Packaging division can custom design KD-HT certified crates for your export material. We can crate in our facility or send a team to you for on-site packaging.
The delivery of parts to a manufacturing plant just in time (JIT) and in the proper build sequence is critical in today’s fast-paced world. Kontane Logistics' sequencing program optimizes production efficiency, reduces parts storage space and other waste.
We have a highly skilled staff with a tremendous amount of experience in doing light assembly projects for all kinds of finished material, allowing you to build-to-order or build-to-stock, speeding time to market and reducing costs.
The picking and grouping elements into kits at our facility allows your business to free up manufacturing space and streamline material flow, increasing efficiency and reducing costs.
Pick & Pack
Our warehouse staff is very experienced in order fulfillment for projects of all volumes. We have relabeling capability and can ship wherever your customer is located.
Cross-Docking | Transloading
Every one of our facilities has the ability to cross-dock your material with precise attention paid to getting material as quickly as possible to its destination, reducing your handling, operating, and inventory costs. Additionally, all of our facilities are well equipped to move your material from one mode of transportation to another and are designed to minimize handling.
We have decades of proven experience in the aftermarket field. Whether it's corrugated, cardboard, or crates, we can and have done it all.
Foreign Trade Zone
Foreign Trade Zones (FTZ's) are restricted access sites that allow businesses to store and process goods, raw materials, or finished product duty and quota free until they are transported into the Customs territory of the United States. Kontane Logistics operates a Foreign Trade Zone (FTZ) in our Charleston, SC facility that is the only active FTZ in the Port of Charleston. Since FTZ's are considered outside the commerce of the United States, we can facilitate financial and logistical platforms that create fiscal benefits for your organization, and your clients.
Server & Cloud-Based Information
Our Visual ERP system can provide you with a tailored inventory management system, including status updates of sub-assembly, WIP, and kitting projects sequenced to your production facilities. Our staff has a unique penchant for learning our clients' systems (SAP, Oracle, etc.) should that be an advantage to your operations. Our cloud-based WMS, from 3plCentral, is scalable to any fulfillment activity. Whether it's your system or ours, we have the resources to develop the most efficient and effective IT solutions.
Retail | Wholesale
Kontane Logistics offers a range of innovative retail and wholesale logistics services to improve contract manufacturing/wholesale supply chain productivity. We can help improve inventory control and customer service, freeing the customer to focus on its core business. Retail display assembly, retail fold, labeling, and musical pack development are core services we provide our client base.
Direct to Consumer
Let us fulfill your e-commerce internet orders with our direct to consumer platform. Our WMS is linked to UPS and FedEx to ensure accurate shipping info and streamlined label printing. We can also integrate with your website shopping cart to automatically download orders for picking and verify stock status for product availability. This results in efficient operations, reduced costs and accurate order fulfillment.
Realize ocean freight savings by having Kontane Logistics deconsolidate full inbound containers close to the Port at our Charleston facility for segregation and distribution throughout the US. Or, we can consolidate export freight, such as returnable containers, from multiple locations to ship to your overseas suppliers or customers.
