FORT WORTH, Texas (December 04, 2018) – Smart Warehousing, a warehousing and fulfillment services company, is launching its first North Texas location at AllianceTexas, Hillwood’s 26,000-acre master-planned, mixed-use development in north Fort Worth. The 269,494-square-foot facility, which is located at Alliance Center North 15, will feature the company’s proprietary, web-based inventory management system that was created specifically for the warehousing and supply-chain management industry.
“There is no better location for logistics companies in North Texas than the Alliance Corridor,” said Ed Lee, Smart Warehousing’s Chief Operating Officer. “Hillwood had space immediately available at AllianceTexas to accommodate our current needs, and additional land and resources are accessible to us if we decide to expand in the future. Since our concept relies heavily on customer service and technology, we also found Hillwood’s community partnerships, workforce development relationships, and job placement assistance through the Alliance Opportunity Center to be great benefits.”
Smart Warehousing offers hundreds of companies its warehousing, fulfillment, inventory management and value-added services in multiple locations across the United States so that products are close to customers. The company was established in 2001 and has expanded to more than 30 locations across twelve cities. Using its proprietary Smart Warehousing Information Management System (SWIMS), customers receive simple, customizable supply chain solutions. Through the use of convenient customer alerts and mobile apps, customers can easily monitor account activity, deliveries, purchase orders, future requirements, and replenishment activity so they may precisely control inventory and more accurately predict future product demand.
“Smart Warehousing is a great fit for AllianceTexas because it shares Hillwood’s commitment towards the creation of exceptional customer value, driven by innovation and scale,” said Reid Goetz, vice president with Hillwood. “Smart Warehousing is at the leading edge of logistics and fulfillment companies that are embracing advanced technology to enhance business productivity, and it will be able to further leverage the real estate platform and operational support infrastructure already in place within AllianceTexas. We’re very excited to welcome Smart Warehousing to AllianceTexas and look forward to serving their needs now and into the future.”
