Zipp Express’s Warehouse Operations 101

by | Aug 16, 2022

Five years ago, we recognized the growing demand for local short-and long-term commercial storage. We tripled our available storage space and gained the warehouse advantage in St. Louis.

Whether you need temporary storage when a piece of equipment arrives after-hours, or to store a sensitive item, we can help, take a moment now to get schooled in Zipp Express’s warehouse operations 101.

Warehouse Storage Space

In 2017, we went from about 12,000 square feet of warehouse space to 40,000. Our climate-controlled warehouse has 25-foot ceilings and 40-foot column spans. This means we have plenty of space for freight of all sizes.

With 40,000 square feet of space, 25’ ceilings, and 40’ column spans, Zipp Express can easily facilitate even the largest shipments. Freight overflow? We handle that too!

Need to store large construction equipment? We have room! What about convention set up and displays? We have room! Medical equipment? Supplies? High-volume shipments? We definitely have room.

Secure and Safe

One of the key questions on everyone’s mind when they turn over a piece of equipment or freight for storage is: how protected is my item?

You’re trusting us with your inventory. That’s as good as cash in hand for your business and we know that. That’s why we’ve taken extra safety measures.

Our warehouse operations include state-of-the-art security cameras focused on the floor and at the entrances. No one will come in or go out without us knowing. And if you have high-value items such as pharmaceuticals, jewelry or medical devices, we have a 2,000 square-foot caged space to manage those security concerns.

In addition, our warehouse personnel must pass a thorough background check. Rest assured that your cargo is in great hands!

Cross-dock Capabilities

Don’t need us to store something? No problem! With eight dock doors, ramps and 40,000 square feet of space, we are able to easily handle cross-docking of any size load. We’ll accept your item, then immediately turn it around upon receipt and ship it on an outgoing truck or with a courier.

Transferring shipments has never been easier!

Final Mile Delivery

In St. Louis, the most common delivery transfer location by far is Lambert International Airport Lambert airport. We’ll pick up your shipment and either store it for you or deliver it to your customer.

Our St. Louis warehouse has the capacity to allow us to receive or recover any final mile freight and then make sure it is delivered to your consignee on your time schedule. Zipp Express offers both residential and commercial deliveries with curbside, threshold, white glove, and multi-man team service.


Time is money and we know many businesses run on a tight schedule these days. That’s why Zipp Express can accommodate nearly everyone.

We are conveniently located in St. Louis just one mile west of I-270 off I-70. That means we can handle final mile deliveries, whether we are your final destination or you need to use our cross-docking services to get your shipment to the next destination.

Our facility’s standard hours of operation are Monday – Friday from 07:00 to 18:30, with 24/7/365 access available by appointment. If you need immediate access to your items in our warehouse, we can accommodate that!
