Rack Storage & Bulk Storage Services

Grimes Warehousing Services offers bulk and rack storage at our 3PL warehouse services in Jacksonville, Florida. Bridging the gap between pallet racks and simple shelving storage systems, bulk storage racks are designed specifically for heavy bulk items. Bulk racks are ideal for storing bulky items, cartons, supplies, tools, and more. Bulk rack systems come in a variety of sizes and capacities and can be adjusted to fit a wide range of applications. Bulk racks can accommodate different types of decking, which may include wood, steel and wire decks. Grimes Warehousing is environmentally conscience - Our forklift fleet is predominantly electric!

Warehouse Picking: Case Picking Solutions

Case picking is a labor intensive and costly function in warehouses and 3PL distribution services. With decades of experience, Grimes has developed numerous order fulfilment strategies that provide fast, accurate and cost-effective case picking solutions.The order picking or order preparation operation is one of a logistic warehouse's process. It consists in taking and collecting articles in a specified quantity before shipment to satisfy customers' orders. 

Drum Handling

Heavy drums should always be moved with proper drum handling equipment. A full 55-gallon (210 liter) steel drum can weigh over 2,000 pounds. At Grimes Warehousing Servcies, we use a drum truck, forklift attachment, below-hook drum lifter or other equipment specifically designed for drum handling.

Transloading & Cross Docking

Transloading is the process of transferring a shipment from one mode of transportation to another. It is most commonly employed when one mode cannot be used for the entire trip, such as when goods must be shipped internationally from one inland point to another. Such a trip might require transport by truck to an airport, then by airplane overseas, and then by another truck to its destination; or it might involve bulk material (such as coal) loaded to rail at the mine and then transferred to a ship at a port. Transloading is also required at railroad break-of-gauge points, since the equipment between lines is not compatible.

Cross-docking is a practice in logistics of unloading materials from an incoming semi-trailer truck or railroad car and loading these materials directly into outbound trucks, trailers, or rail cars, with little or no storage in between. This may be done to change the type of conveyance, to sort material intended for different destinations, or to combine material from different origins into transport vehicles (or containers) with the same destination or similar destinations. 

Load Recovery Services: Optimizing Your Dock Time

During transit, cargo may shift, thus creating a potentially dangerous scenario for the trucking company and it's driver. This may be due to improper loading, bracing or load securement. In the event that your cargo requires recovery, our skilled warehouse staff can provide comprehensive load shift and load recovery solutions.

Grimes Warehousing Services provides cost effective, load shift correction solutions at any one of our warehouse locations. Our capabilities include restacking, repacking, re-palletization, reloading and proper load re-securement. These procedures are also referred to as "blocking and bracing." All of our warehouses are equipped with the following: forklifts, pallet jacks, dock plates or dock levelers, and banding equipment. In addition to equipment, our warehouses are also stocked with all packing supplies your load may require, from pallets to boxes to shrink wrap. Our warehouse staff can re-work your truck loads to better optimize your dock time and get your trucks and cargo back on the road quickly and safely.
