About United Warehouses

Mission

As a third-party logistics provider, United Warehouses endeavors to continually increase our dedication to every customer’s success. United Warehouses develops and maintains a professional relationship with each of our customers through an ongoing commitment to improving service levels while remaining cost competitive.

 

We have developed a reputation for excellence, with strategic locations in Seattle, Renton, and Kent, WA, and Portland, OR, offering superior warehousing, transportation and third-party logistics services. Our consistent commitment to providing the best possible customer service ensures the supply chain success of all of our customer partnerships. We specialize in the distribution of grocery-related products, pharmaceuticals, consumer goods, paper, and general merchandise.

History

United Warehouses has been providing regional warehousing, transportation and third-party logistics solutions in the Pacific Northwest since 1948. We have been owned and operated by the same management team since 1974. Through dedication to meeting each customer's unique needs, we grew our operations and warehouse floor space from 70,000 to over 700,000 square feet in five Seattle area and Portland warehouses. In order to provide complete and consistent logistics services, we added Herche Transfer, our local trucking company and Alaska Traffic Company, a freight forwarder.

Our Transportation Partners


Herche Transfer, our local trucking company, delivers products exclusively for United Warehouses. By handling transportation from our warehouse to the customer’s loading dock we can track and manage inventory from the moment we receive it until we deliver it.

   

Alaska Traffic Company, our affiliate, provides freight forwarding and consolidation to Alaska for all types of freight via steamship, barge, airfreight, and over-the-road trucking.
