Distribution and Fulfillment
Kenco operates over 30 million square feet of warehouse space across North America. We perform services that go far beyond the receiving and storage of freight. Some of these value-added services include: network optimization, sequencing, raw materials management, product testing, vendor-managed inventory, and regulated pharmaceutical destruction. Kenco’s technology solutions bring agility and flexibility to our customers. We offer the combination of several powerful tools to help you manage your information, workforce, inventory, space, and time.
Companies rely on Kenco for innovative solutions to lower transportation costs, improve customer service, and reduce order cycle times. Our experts focus on your transportation needs so you can focus on your company’s core competency. Kenco offers full-service transportation solutions, which include dedicated fleet management, freight management, transportation brokerage, over the road transportation, and transportation management systems.
Material Handling Solutions
Kenco has been providing material handling equipment (MHE) and maintenance services for over 50 years. In addition to regional forklift dealerships, Kenco has the ability to provide on-site technicians that perform preventative maintenance and repairs. This service can substantially reduce equipment downtime and maintenance costs. We also offer a fleet strategy service that tracks and reports MHE data to allow management to make more informed equipment decisions.
Real Estate Management
JDK Real Estate is known for optimum site selection and rate negotiation power. We leverage our partnerships with internationally known real estate firms to provide a “one-stop shop” capable of managing the real estate process from beginning to end. We can locate an existing site or build-to-suit, and customize, equip, and manage the facility.
Through our Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC) certiﬁcation, Kenco fulﬁlls a unique market niche by offering high-quality and comprehensive services on a large scale while allowing customers to meet supplier diversity goals.
