Zipp Express Meets Your Storage Needs!

by | May 15, 2021

Zipp Express is the perfect solution to all your storage needs.

A few years ago, Zipp Express recognized a growing demand for local short and long-term commercial storage solutions. So we expanded our warehouse and our operations to meet that demand. We have the answer to all of your storage questions.

Does Zipp Express Have Room?

Our climate-controlled warehouse boasts 40,000 square feet of space, 25-foot ceilings, with 40-foot column spans. This means that not only does Zipp Express have plenty of space for freight of all sizes, we can house large equipment too.

So if your business is short on storage space and you need a place to hold your freight until you can make room for it, Zipp can do that. Or if you just need us to store incoming shipments across a weekend or holiday, we’ve got you covered. Perhaps you need to store seasonal items or convention displays in the weeks leading up to the occasion. We can do that too!

Zipp can also store construction supplies and equipment until you’re ready to start that all-important building project. And if you need us to transport it to the job site for you, then be sure and ask us about our flat bed trucks and drivers. We offer LTL service if you need your supplies retrieved in smaller loads so you don’t have more equipment or supplies on the job site than necessary. That way, weather-sensitive items such as lumber can be stored in a secure dry location until you’re ready for them.

Additionally, we can store sensitive shipments such as medical equipment, pharmaceuticals, and jewelry. We’ll talk about that more below but be sure and ask about our 2000 square foot caged space if you have items that require extra security.

And that is not everything we can store! Just give us a call and ask us. The answer will almost certainly be, “Yes! We have room for that!”

I Need to Transfer Freight! Can You Handle That?

Zipp Express makes freight transfer easy! Cross docking capability limits the need for storage by allowing the smooth transfer of freight between shipping partners. We offer eight dock doors with ramps that can accommodate loads and trucks of any size. Drivers of straight trucks, tractor trailers, flatbeds, and even box trucks, will find approaching and backing into our receiving docks a painless experience. We should know! For we have these and more in our own fleet.

We are an excellent central redirection point, as we are located just one mile west of I-270 off I-70. By utilizing our docks, shipping partners can quickly and efficiently off-load freight to outgoing trucks or couriers. Or they can just as easily collect freight from incoming trucks. That puts drivers back on the road and on to their next destination with no delays.

 How Secure is Zipp Express’s Warehouse?  

In this day and age, air-tight security should be standard. Zipp Express has this covered with state-of-the-art equipment and procedures.

All our team members are thoroughly background checked and trained to treat your goods with the greatest of care. And this includes our warehouse personnel. If you want them to have additional training before picking up or transporting your items, we can provide that too. So, you never have to worry about who is handling your materials and what shape they will arrive in. And when you return to retrieve your items from our warehouse, you will find them in the same condition you dropped them off in.

Our concern for your goods extends to physical security as well. Our security personnel monitor Zipp Express’s facilities via an internet feed 24/7. The warehouse floor has cameras placed in a variety of locations throughout, so there are no off-camera angles. This includes every entrance, the docks, and the warehouse floor.  So if something seems amiss, our security personnel will see it before it becomes any kind of problem.

We give all incoming items their own tracking numbers, so that everyone involved 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. And you can confirm this yourself by checking on the location of your goods at any time.

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.

Can You Work with My Schedule?

Like most businesses, Zipp Express has standard hours of operation and is open Monday through Friday, from 7:00 am to 6:30 pm.  However, if you need access to our warehouse, or to set up deliveries, or cross dock transfers outside of business hours, we can easily accommodate you. Also, our drivers are available 24/7/365 days a year. So if you need a late-night pickup or delivery within a 150 square mile area of St. Louis, we’ve got you covered.

Our warehouse is within ten minutes of the St. Louis Lambert International Airport. Meeting planes late at night or early in the morning to pick up or drop off freight is easy. Our drivers make that run all the time. Zipp Express’s drivers are TSA Certified. They have direct access to the planes that deliver and collect your shipments. And our warehouse location means we can easily provide Next-Flight-Out (NFO) service for time-sensitive cargo and parcels.

Conclusion
