190 containers

An example of one of our customers projects was to manage the unloading of 190 containers from China. Everything has to be unloaded, stored, and shipped to Amazon DCs in Jax and Tampa.
We had to partner with our 4PL contractor to make this happen. We still handle all of the paperwork and billing for both sites, so it is seamless to the customer. We also have to perform quality checks on a percentage of each container to ensure the plant is manufacturing a satisfactory product for the customer.

Here is a picture from our paddle board account. We had to manually inflate all of the returned boards to determine if they could be sold as good inventory.

An update from Laney Duke

Although we continue to grow our business services and our client base, we don’t always get to chat about it. So below is a list of things happening right now within Laney & Duke:

  • The pictures are of our trucks backing in with the shipping containers from the port of Jacksonville, which are to be unloaded and returned. 
  • We are in the process of retrofitting all of the current lighting in our facilities with high bay LED lighting, which should really improve the brightness inside our facilities and cut energy usage. 
  • In addition, we recently added about 5 acres of asphalt to our property in preparation for the upcoming Owens Corning shingles operation.
  • We have also picked up a few new accounts including solar panels and copy paper.

Patricia Doles is our office manager and responsible for setting up each new account we acquire, and ensuring that everything goes exactly as planned. She calls and introduces herself to each customer. She is responsible for entering their inventory into our WMS system to ensure that our inventory records mirror what we receive and what the customer says we should have on hand.

Patricia also oversees all office personnel and assists in training then. Patricia is also responsible for processing the monthly billing and addresses any discrepancies we may encounter. Patricia is also the primary CSR for each account regarding any questions or special requests customers have; there are plenty. Patricia began with L & D on May 9, 1988 and is absolutely crucial to the success of our operation. If I had 5 clones of Patricia, we would never have any issues.

These solutions are engineered to accommodate the specific application needs of the apparel warehousing and distribution environment, such as configurations for multi-channel or dedicated e-commerce and retail store fulfilment systems, seasonal/promotional peaks, slow moving inventory, and returns processing. Typical solutions are designed to optimize the processes involved with receiving, storage, replenishment, case and item picking, consolidation, packing, truck loading, and cross-docking, along with the ability to handle a variety of load types: cartons, totes, poly bags, and garment-on-hanger.

The apparel solutions we provide our clothing accounts are 100% pick and pack and growing every season. They have increased their number of skus, internet and store orders, and volume. We also handle a large volume of returns from these customers which requires inspecting the returns and determining if the item is still saleable or otherwise. These customers also require special labeling, stickering, hangering, or bagging according to the customer’s requests. All of these special services are priced separately depending on the customer, flexibility and service is our primary marketing tool.
