Since 1982, Midwest Warehouse & Distribution System has provided third-party warehousing, transportation and other supply-chain solutions for a variety of industries such as grocery, food, beverage, appliance and packaging clients. Today, with four affiliate companies and more than a dozen facilities nationwide, Midwest is responsible for more than 6 million square feet of contract and public warehousing space.
At its facilities in Woodridge and North Aurora, IL, the company stores and distributes food-grade products. Keeping up with high demand is critical to maintaining efficient operations. In North Aurora alone, Midwest Warehouse & Distribution System moves 100 to 130 truckloads of product a day, working two shifts per day, seven days per week. Down time is not an option and productivity is key, so the company relies on the safety and dependability of Crown reach trucks, order pickers and narrow-aisle trucks and depends on a Crown service and maintenance plan to keep things moving.
