Frequently Asked Questions about Warehousing

Q: Why should I use outsourcing services for warehousing and distribution?

A: Outsourcing has many benefits including:
Freeing up valuable production space.
Allowing you to concentrate on your core discipline (product development, marketing, sales, etc.).
Reducing capital expenses (building, fixtures, equipment).
Allowing you to only pay for the space and services used. Thus in a cyclical economy, cash flow is easier to track and maintain.

Q: Does FreightCare have the ability to receive product for same or next day delivery?

A: Yes, FreightCare has a very quick turnaround time. All orders received by 2 p.m. will be shipped out same day. These orders can then be shipped by carriers offering same day or next day delivery. South Island delivery times are 2 – 3 working days.

Q: What are FreightCare’s rates?

A: Storage rates are based on pallets stored, and start at a low $3 per pallet space, per week. In order to offer you the best service possible, FreightCare will need to determine your individual requirements, and tailor a package to suit, before an exact quote can be offered.
