Warehousing is the act of storing goods that will be sold or distributed later. You might hear “warehouse” and “distribution center” used interchangeably, but a warehouse provides nothing more than storage. A distribution center, on the other hand, stores products and fulfills orders. Fulfillment simply refers to a customer’s order being put together and shipped out to them. Warehousing and all that goes with it is part of a sophisticated industry known as logistics management and includes procurement, inventory management, and distribution. It falls under the supply chain umbrella and at Full Tilt we perform all supply chain functions making us a true 3PL (third party logistics) operation.

Full Tilt’s new state-of-the-art warehouse and distribution facility is strategically located in South Reno, NV with easy access to interstates, rail lines and airports. It’s staffed by well-trained employees who manage and operate the facility utilizing only the most advanced equipment.  Our shelving and racking systems offer maximum storage capacity and easy product access, and we utilize the best shipping supplies for order fulfillment. We have the most advanced security system available, as well as, 24-hour security patrol to protect the stored inventory.

At FULL TILT we do more than warehousing, distribution and fulfillment. We also provide our customers with value added services such as: inventory management, transloading, cross-docking and the re-work of shifted loads:

Inventory Management and Control

Inventory Management and Control is the supervision of inventory and stock items. Inventory management facilitates the flow of goods from manufacturers to warehouses, and from these facilities to point of sale. Full Tilt warehousing staff uses the latest technology to keep a detailed record of each product as it enters and leaves our warehouse. Our system is several layers deep and fully integrated with accounting capabilities to provide an accurate assessment of the value of goods stored in our warehouse.

Transloading

Transloading is a shipping term that refers to the transfer of goods from one mode of transportation to another in route to their ultimate destination. Transloading has become a standard method for shipping goods in recent years, in part due to the growth of internet commerce. At Full Tilt, we offer transloading services from full truckload to final destination delivery. Because of the complexity of the options, companies outsourcing logistics services to Full Tilt often utilize this added service. We plot a route and track delivery from the source to the customer, using software to plan the most efficient combination of transport methods.

Cross-Docking

Cross-docking is a system where goods are received directly at the warehouse, and are not stored in storage, but are always ready to be shipped to final destination. Warehouse operations have four main functions, including receiving, storing, collecting orders, and sending goods. Storing and collecting orders cost the most. Cross-docking saves money from storage and the shipment only takes a day or less at the cross-dock before shipping to customers. Cross-docking advantages include easy material handling, reduced warehousing costs, products get on the road faster. Cross-docking is the direct flow, with minimal dwell time and the lowest handling and storage time, for the products from the receiving area to the shipping zone inside the warehouse. 

Re-Work Shifted Loads

Shifted trailer loads are a problem in the trucking business. When our warehouse receives your merchandise in that condition, we rework freight as necessary, get it ready for storage in our warehouse and redelivery to customer. We will carefully sort through your merchandise, fixing packaging on cargo. We can salvage most items and rework and repack your shifted pallets. This type of damage can cost our customers thousands of dollars and seriously impact inventory and the bottom-line. You need experienced professionals to make your items safe to store and ship again and we are those professionals.
