The 5 Ws of Warehouse Services with Zipp Express

When you need professional, reliable, timely and cost-effective warehouse services in St. Louis, Zipp Express is the company to call. Here are the basic 5Ws of warehouse services with us – th Who, What, When, Where, Why and How.



Who can Zipp Express help?


Whether you are a big company or a small business, warehousing your inventory can be a challenge. Large companies often have big, bulky pieces of equipment that need to be housed. And just because they are a big company, that doesn’t always mean they have the physical space for all their material.

Smaller companies may just need a place to store their inventory or exhibit wares. Small businesses often operate on a shoestring, so it isn’t feasible to have their own warehouse.

Zipp Express can help each of them, with secure, monitored short- and long-term storage.


What can Zipp Express warehouse? Whatever you need to have stored!

Medical equipment. Jewelry. Truck engines. Pharmaceuticals. No matter what the size or shape of your inventory, Zipp Express can warehouse it. That’s because we have two means of storing your goods.

We have a 40,000 square-foot facility that has 25-foot ceilings and 40-foot column spans. We have plenty of space for your oversized goods such as construction equipment or your multi-pallet inventory of convention event set-up and displays.

In addition, we have a 2,000-square foot caged space for high value items such as pharmaceuticals and jewelry.

Each of these spaces have state-of-the-art cameras focused on the floor and entrances and swipe card technology to limit entry to authorized warehouse personnel.


Our services are available 24/7/365.

Zipp Express offers around the clock dispatching powered by Xcelerator, making sure your deliveries are on time, every time.

As one of our customers, you won’t have to wait until office hours to schedule your pick-up or delivery. You’ll have access to online tools that let you schedule regular deliveries at times that are convenient for you. For instance, if you are a lab partnered with a doctor’s office, you could schedule lab tests for pick up and delivery at the same time every day. Consistency helps streamline a productive workday.

But what about our warehouse services? Although our warehouse isn’t open all the time, our standard hours of operations are Monday – Friday from 07:00 to 18:30 with 24/7/365 access available by appointment.


Our warehouse is located west of I-270, off I-70. This is easy access from St. Louis Lambert airport where many businesses may be bringing in goods. And because we’re so close to the airport, we can offer

Our delivery services extend to a 150-air mile radius. We service all the main corridors in the St. Louis metro area and beyond, including as far West as Columbia and points into Southern Illinois. Daily, weekly, and monthly delivery service options are available, as well as expedited services in the contiguous United States.


Why should you let Zipp Express provide you with warehouse services? Experience and forward-looking growth.

We have been in the trucking and courier business since 1989. We are locally owned and operated and that means we know St. Louis. We know the city roads like the back of our hand. We understand the city’s business culture. We know what it’s like to start small and grow because that’s what we did.

Until 2000, our services were mainly car and van deliveries of envelopes and small packages to small businesses and individuals. That’s when we saw that St. Louis needed more a broader scope of delivery solutions. So, we added dock-high trucks to our fleet.

From there, we integrated several other established trucking and air freight companies and added more delivery service options for St. Louis, such as next day LTL (less than truckload) delivery services and a full range of air freight and cartage services.

We continue to find ways to improve Zipp Express through fleet acquisitions, expanding services and – always – our professionalism and customer service.

…..And How
