Temperature Controlled Warehouse

Lanter's core competency is distribution of temperature sensitive products via our LTL delivery network.

As a compliment to our delivery network, Lanter manages over 700,000 sq feet of warehouse space housing over 35,000 pallet positions of different temperatures. These warehouses are strategically positioned in the Midwest and Southern states.

The warehouses are equipped with a variety of temperature controlled ranges and provide options for cross-docking, short-term storage, longer-term storage and full order fulfillment services.

Temperature ranges include dry, refrigerated, frozen and air conditioned options.

The above facilities function primarily as LTL consolidation centers. In addition, the warehouses offer expanded services including order fulfillment, pick and pack, cold storage and reverse logistics. Warehousing services such as labeling, lot control, inventory control, kitting projects and repack projects are part of our service offerings.
