What warehouse management services does AIT provide?

Our team of experts specializes in helping businesses maximize productivity with a comprehensive range of scalable, customizable warehouse management solutions, including:

What is virtual warehousing?

A virtual warehouse is a type of data warehouse—a large store of data accumulated from a wide range of sources used to guide management decisions. In this case, the warehouse keeps tabs on a businesses’ organization-wide inventory data.

In general, virtual warehouses support faster order fulfillment while reducing transportation costs, labor costs and service times. Specific examples include the capability for automatic order fulfillment determinations as well as the means to aggregate demand of low-volume stock across multiple locations, reducing inventory levels while meeting overall demand.

What are bonded warehouses?

A bonded warehouse is a secure area where you can have goods you import into the United States assembled, labeled, marked, manipulated and/or stored without paying duties for as many as five years from the import date. Customs approval is required for any cleaning, repackaging or sorting of goods.
