Zipp Express is a Delivery Support System for Small Businesses

by | Nov 16, 2022

Owning and running a small business can sometimes feel like you’re swimming upstream with the sharks closing in. You’re working hard but you’re in danger of losing the race. You need every advantage you can get to compete with the sharks.

That’s why Zipp Express is your delivery support system.

What a Small Business Needs

Every small business is unique because of the product or services it sells. Even though two companies may sell kitchen tables, what sets them apart are factors such as the quality of the tables, their sales personnel, or their business hours.

On the other hand, every small business has similar needs: access to their inventory and a way to deliver it.

That’s where Zipp Express comes in. How can we be a delivery support system for small businesses? There are two ways: warehousing your inventory and delivering your products.

Zipp Express can Warehouse Your Inventory

Buy in Bulk; Save Money and Time

Buying in bulk is a good idea for a couple reasons. Per unit costs are nearly always smaller when you buy in bulk. Small savings add up fast—especially if you’re still in your first few years of business.

Buying in bulk is also a smart way to manage supply chain problems. When you buy in bulk, you save time. You’ll have the supplies you need on hand, so no need to slow down a production line or put off sending inventory to a key customer. Managing supply chains can even out the peaks and valleys of your business income.

Zipp Express Warehousing Advantages

As a small business, you don’t own large buildings where you can store massive amounts of inventory until you need them. But Zipp Express does.

We have a 40,000 square foot warehouse with 25-foot ceilings and 40-foot column spans. Why should this matter to you? Because with this configuration, we have plenty of room to house your stock. So, if what you need to store is a large piece of medical equipment such as an MIR machine, we can do that! And if you just invested in a large order of supplies for your business and need a place to hold them, we can do that, too!

Secure and Climate-controlled

When you have high value items to store, such as pharmaceuticals or jewelry, you want to know they’re secure. At Zipp Express, air-tight security is standard. We handle this with state-of-the-art equipment and procedures.

Background Checks and Monitors

All of our team members go through an exhaustive background check. In addition, they receive proper training in handling various types of goods, whether it is transporting heavy goods such as pianos or medical equipment, or delicate but valuable objects such as glassware.

Our warehouse is equipped with cameras located throughout the warehouse in such a way as to eliminate blind spots. This includes every entrance and the docks. But we don’t just have cameras recording activity; our security personnel monitor Zipp Express’s facilities 24/7 via an internet feed.

Tracking Numbers

Every incoming item is given a tracking number. This way, everyone can track their location, regardless of where they are in the supply chain. From the moment we accept your shipment or goods you need us to store, to the moment you pick them up or we deliver them, your items are never out of our sight.

Security Cage

Additionally, we offer a 2000 sq ft caged space for high value shipments such as pharmaceuticals, jewelry, and expensive medical equipment. This space is accessed only with swipe cards and has its own monitored security system. And, as always, we give your sensitive shipments a tracking number so you can confirm that we have placed it in our high security hold.

Climate-controlled

When you store your items in our climate-controlled warehouse, you can rest assured they will be protected from the high humidity of St. Louis summers and the wet, icy winters. Your important documents, precious jewelry and delicate medical equipment will be safe from temperate fluctuations that can cause harm to your goods.

Another way Zipp Express is your delivery support system is when we transport your goods from our warehouse or St. Louis Lambert International Airport to its final destination.

Zipp Express Delivers

Courier Service

Sometimes all you need is an occasional document delivered across town. But as a small business owner, you can’t always stop what you’re doing to jump in your car and fight traffic to get it in the recipient’s hands.

But we can. We have dedicated couriers who know the traffic patterns and streets of St. Louis well, so if you document is time-sensitive, we can get it there on time. And if you have regular deliveries that need to be done daily, weekly or monthly, we can put you on our schedule so you never miss a delivery – and neither do we!

Final Mile Delivery

If a company wants to stay competitive and make quick, on-time deliveries, choosing a quality final mile delivery partner is essential. It’s even more important for a small business that might have fewer resources to manage deliveries.

More than ever, in today’s economic times, a final mile delivery partner is a must.

A final mile delivery partner is a consistent, credible partner in a specific location that provides assistance in delivering items from a transportation hub to their destination. That describes Zipp Express!

Our warehouse is located one mile west of I-270 off of I-70, just ten minutes from St. Louis Lambert Airport with easy access to the interstate. This makes pickups and drop-offs fast and easy.

We can pick up your freight from the airport and deliver it to its final destination for you. Our drivers make this run daily. And because they are all TSA certified, they don’t have to wait in line. If you have freight coming, we can pick it up and take it directly to our warehouse or to your place of business. We have eight loading docks with cross docking available.

Zipp Express is your small business partner

We know what a small business owner needs to run their company smoothly. You need to be able to move your supplies and inventory quickly and efficiently. You need to have access to them when you need them. You need to store them in a safe place.

That’s why Zipp Express is your delivery support system. Contact us online or give us a call at 314-842-8877 to talk to one of our customer service representatives. Find out today how we can help you.
