MetroWire Media: KC Logistics Firm Finds “Smarter” Way to Warehouse

By Lisa Shackelford Kansas City-based third-party logistics firm, Smart Warehousing, stays ahead of the game by using in-house technology to create efficiencies and value for each one of their 800-and-counting nationwide clients. Strategically headquartered in the center of the US in Kansas City, Smart Warehousing has become an industry-leading warehousing, fulfillment, and logistical solutions company by offering new technologies and services so clients can focus on core business activities while they handle the details. “We have developed simple and dependable systems to give our clients ultimate control, said CEO and founder, Carl Wasinger. “Our flexible warehousing adds value by reducing seasonal challenges, and our web-based management systems are designed to keep all parties informed.” Smart Warehousing becomes the ultimate solution for their clients by ensuring that orders are filled, inventories stay accurate, and clients stay connected by using their own technology and employing a full-time staff of developers and IT professionals. “This is not something that a lot of companies have. They’ll have a Director of IT, but they don’t have a Director of IT and a whole department of developers focused on further integration,” Wasinger said. The company’s initial and continued investment in technology has contributed to growth over time and is proving to be fortuitous in today’s e-commerce world, an industry heavily weighted towards technological expertise. Founded in 2001, with just 9,000 square feet, the 3PL giant has experienced explosive growth, entering three new markets in a 12-month period including Reno, Dallas and Milwaukee, as well as expansion in Pennsylvania. They currently occupy 7.7 million square feet in 12 states, in 26 individual warehouse facilities. “Our rapid growth over the
