DES MOINES IOWA PUBLIC WAREHOUSING, DISTRIBUTION AND TRUCKING
From the days of transfer and storage to today's logistics management, Merchants Distribution has met the test of time.
It is no secret that public warehousing offers storage. Though we can handle almost any non-hazardous commodity, we have established ourselves as specialists to these industries: tobacco, appliances, ingredients, plastics, food and beverage containers, non-hazardous animal and agricultural supplies, paper and general commodities.
Merchants is literally at the crossroads of America - the intersection of Interstate 80 and 35 in Des Moines, Iowa. It's an ideal spot for handling your pool distribution, as well as warehousing inventory. Almost any place in the continental U. S. is just three days by truck, a few more by rail. Better yet, there are no tax penalties on inventories stored in Iowa. If your final destination is outside Iowa, you do not pay property tax on the goods. In fact, you pay corporate income tax only on what you deliver and sell in Iowa.
Moving products and materials in and out of Merchants is easier than you think. We have 40 truck dock doors, which means no waiting to load or unload. Our private rail sidings hold up to 14 cars at a time, and free reciprocal switching connects your shipment to any of the three Class I railroads serving Des Moines. TOFC-COFC and piggyback drayage services are available, too. We operate our own local and short-haul cartage service. A growing number of Merchants customers depend on our local pickup and delivery service, which saves them time, money, and headaches.
