MIDLOTHIAN, Va.—Members of GLWarehouses.com, a subsidiary of Getloaded.com, can search for available warehouse space by location or specific attributes, according to Bryan Jones, president of Getloaded.com.
“The key goal of GLWarehouses.com is to significantly reduce the time spent by shippers, brokers, and carriers in finding warehouse space that meets their needs and to help warehouse owners quickly fill their unoccupied warehouse space,” according to the company.
“We realized many of our members have warehouse operations, but there were few, if any, services available to support this side of their business,” says Jones.
The International Warehouse Logistics Association (IWLA) operates a search tool called the Logistics Services Locator (LSL), which it redesigned a year ago.
“The state-of-the-art mechanism allows shippers to search IWLA member warehouse logistics providers by zip/postal code, company and keyword(s),” according to IWLA. After finding an IWLA-member facility, users can send a request for information (RFI) to the main contact at each member location. Listings include location, services, a company profile and a link to the company’s Web site.
The LSL is made up of active IWLA members in good standing who meet and maintain association standards of conduct and business practice. The LSL is available at www.logisticsservicelocator.com.
