Real Estate Sourcing
It’s the most basic rule in the “supply chain engineering playbook”: Keep warehouse and manufacturing-support operations as close as possible to the OEM’s assembly plant.
When it comes to warehouse space, our dedicated in-house real estate experts know it’s much more than docks and doors. Comprehensive Logistics (CLI) understands that the optimal site for either a new or relocated warehouse operation can be the catalyst for generating greater efficiencies and reducing operating costs.
CLI starts by asking questions to understand the OEM’s vision, strategy and needs.
Through our excellent relationships with commercial real estate development companies and realtors, CLI can quickly assess and meet the warehouse-location requirements and then negotiate and secure the best lease or purchase terms.
With an in-depth knowledge of key North American manufacturing regions, CLI has the expertise to locate and secure a warehouse and manufacturing-support operation, often less than five miles from the OEM’s assembly plant. As a result, transportation costs are lower, turnaround times are faster, and inventory moves more quickly, allowing the OEM to get their products to market on schedule.
CLI’s network of warehouse and manufacturing-support operations includes dedicated and shared facilities. We have the flexibility to set up lease, purchase, or build-to-suit contracts.
