Get Product Closer to Customers with Phoenix Warehouse

What’s the most populous state capital in the U.S.?  Many are surprised to learn that it’s Phoenix, AZ.  As of 2012, the population was nearly 1.5 million – up from 1 million in 1990.  With an average annual temperature of 72.6 degrees, it certainly attracts many new residents in search of a warmer, low-humidity climate.

As a result of its progressive growth, more and more companies have put their Southwest roots in Phoenix.  Major retailers include Wal-Mart and Costco, who each have established distribution centers in the area.  Population and commercial growth have made a Phoenix warehouse an ideal choice to store and deliver goods to this critical Southwest market.

3PL Choices for Phoenix Warehousing

Phoenix has not traditionally been used as a Southwest distribution hub, but that’s changing.  Here are some reasons to consider a Phoenix warehousing location for product distribution:
  • 34 million consumers within a half-day truck haul
  • Low cost operating environment with minimal regulation
  • Industrial lease rates 40% lower in 2014 than in 2012
  • Two trans-continental railroads and several intra-state railroads 
  • No inventory tax
  • Many 3PLs, such as Weber, operate multi-client distribution centers there, so shippers can very quickly initiate distribution from Phoenix with no capital investment
