New study details 3PL warehouse prices in U.S.
A new study comparing prices for major U.S. warehouses is available from Armstrong & Associates Inc. The report covers both contract and public warehousing.
The report explains the different pricing models for each warehouse operation in major metropolitan areas, taking into account regional differences, as well as providing commentary, trends and estimates of the market. The study is designed to help companies select warehouses without having to solicit proposals each time from third party logistics providers and commercial warehouses.
Readers can find information on average term of contracts, average contract values, expected vs. actual operating margins, facility size, available value-added services such as crossdocking or reverse logistics. For public warehouses, the report includes information on the average number of customers per facility, handling charges per pallet and carton, monthly storage charges, hourly labor rates, per piece picking rates and other services.
The report highlights the growth in market share of dedicated contract facilities over public warehousing. For more information, visit www.3PLlogistics.com.
