Warehousing is not rocket science. But to get it right, you have to have a passion for perfection.
Rotondo Warehouse is a full-service, food-grade-certified public warehouse. We have the capacity to store, handle and inventory large volumes of freight by rail, van, container, or flat bed and can ship next-day to all of NY, including the Tri-State region, and eastern Canada. With over 65 years in the industry, we have handled a myriad of products using slip-sheet attachments, roll clamps attachments, forklifts, and clamp trucks. Our facility is dry and clean. We have off-site fire and theft monitoring. We are licensed by the Department of Agriculture (DOA), the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). and the NYS Liquor Authority (SLA). We are licensed to store and distribute wine and spirits. Our warehouse space inventory is a combination of owned and leased space giving us the versatility to expand and contract as the market dictates.
Pallet In, Pallet Out Services
Sometimes called "conventional warehousing", Rotondo Warehouse can store and inventory your product and distribute orders to your customers as directed (using your trucks or ours). We become your DC (distribution center) for your customer base in the region. This type of warehousing allows a customer to keep just the right product mix on the floor to match customer orders and add-ons. You can increase or decrease your pallets on hand as the market dictates and only pay for the number of pallets on our floor.
Ship to us by Rail - Reduce Transportation costs
Several of our customers reduce their supply chain cost by shipping their products to us by rail. We unload over 500 cars of product per year. We can use our years of knowledge and experience to assist you in scheduling shipments, maximizing car volume, determine loading patterns.
Similar to leasing space, this warehousing arrangement is ideal for a company that needs a specific amount of space (for instance, to set up racking for their product ) or for a company that already rents space locally but wants to reduce storage costs by taking advantage of real estate economies of scale. The general rule in real estate is the larger the space rented, the lower the square footage cost. This translates into large space users, such as Rotondo Warehouse, paying less per foot than a 2,000 sf user would pay. Our contract customers have saved substantial amounts of "rent" by contracting for space within our walls. Other cost savings include eliminating CAM charges, utility bills, and reducing labor inefficiencies. This is also called "flex space" since customers and increase or decrease their footprint monthly as desired.
Cross-Docking Services / Emergency Services
We are often called upon to help a carrier or company in the immediate need of storing a truckload of product or an LTL shipment at our facility temporarily due to a missed appointment, malfunctioning equipment , load refusal, shifted load, contamination, or date code issues. We can store your shipment on our dock for a few hours or a few weeks, and re-work the load as directed.
Sometimes called trans-loading, some customers have us "thru-put" our product. Under this arrangement, the customer only pays us to handle their product. The customer is granted 3-5 day grace period of free storage to ship the product out of the our warehouse. This would be ideal for products shipped in by boxcars and shipped out by the truckload.
