Hallowell List clearly understands the concept of A Plus Warehouse’s hamburger factor as applies to Warehouse Shelving. Customers will certainly benefit through minimized shipping charges.
Los Angeles,CA (PRWEB) December 21, 2011
A Plus Warehouse is pleased to add Hallowell warehouse shelving to the http://www.apluswhs.com website. Warehouse shelving is used by many customers and is considered one of the truly mass market items that A Plus Warehouse provides. The Hallowell offering includes a range of warehouse shelving from heavy to extra heavy duty in the open and also closed types. Pass through shelving is also available without any back or side braces.
One salient feature about warehouse shelving at A Plus Warehouse is the inventory strategy employed. A Plus Warehouse has invented a metric called the hamburger factor. The hamburger factor describes how much an item costs to order relative to the weight. The hamburger factor of a $250 125 pound warehouse shelving unit is 2.00 while the hamburger factor of a $1200 300 pound conveyor is 4.00. The greater the factor, the less important regional distribution matters. Conveyors can be shipped from a centralized location while low hamburger ratio items such as warehouse shelving should be provided close to their consumption market to minimize the effect on shipping. According to Ed Stairman, President of A Plus Warehouse, “Hallowell List clearly understands the concept of A Plus Warehouse’s hamburger factor as applies to Warehouse Shelving. Customers will certainly benefit through minimized shipping charges”
This is the reason, by A Plus Warehouse’s reasoning is a key reason Hallowell made the decision to stock their fine warehouse shelving and metal shelving at several distribution points, covering most major markets from shipping points close to the center of mass of these regional demand nodes. Shipping points for these warehouse shelving units include:
Redlands, CA – For west Coast
Apopka, FL – For South East
Memphis, TN – For East Coast
Mechanicsburg, PA – For Mid Atlantic
Belton, TX – For the South west (coming soon)
With these shipping points, orders are delivered promptly at a relatively low shipping cost and with the added benefit of less damage possible, given the smaller distance for delivery.
A Plus Warehouse provides this fine metal shelving for customers nationwide and Canada as well. The sales staff is ready to help with your metal shelving requirements. A Plus Warehouse’s opinion is that no customer question is silly and all should be asked. A trained sales person will certainly help when called to service.
