The Strategic Advantages of Warehousing in Houston

Houston's thriving logistics sector is fueled by a robust and centralized warehousing market. The availability of over one billion square feet of industrial space positions Houston as a warehousing powerhouse. So, what are the key benefits and opportunities for companies that find warehouse space in Houston?

 

Access to Multimodal Transportation

Texas boasts an extensive multimodal transportation network that is vital to its booming economy. As one of only four US states bordering Mexico, Texas dominates US-Mexico border crossings with over 300,000 miles of roadways. Ongoing expansions at ports like Houston, the largest Gulf Coast container port, allow Texas seaports to manage increasing trade volumes. As the top state for exports, Texas uses strategic ports and interstate highways to reach over three-hundred-million people within a one-day drive.

Houston, in particular, benefits from billions invested into ongoing projects. The port of Houston is expanding to accommodate more than two-thirds of all US Gulf Coast container traffic. Deeper ship channels and new interstate systems like I-45 connecting Houston to markets northward increase overall infrastructure capacity.

Across Texas, the interstate highway network spans over 3,200 miles, more than any other state. Major thoroughfares like I-35 connecting Laredo to North Texas and I-10 linking Houston to California and Florida move goods efficiently within and through the state. As freight volumes are projected to double in the coming decades, Texas remains committed to continual investment in infrastructure growth.

 

Colocation Near Customers

Houston's sizable consumer market demands products and services for the region. By establishing a foothold in the Houston warehousing industry, companies can be situated advantageously to serve local and national customers with combined shipping and faster deliveries. This location improves customer experience through quicker response times.

 

Advantageous Business Environment

Year after year, Texas leads the nation in business friendliness. Regulations aim to reduce red tape burdens faced by logistics companies. This pro-business climate fuels the steady growth of industries driving freight demand, from energy and manufacturing to technology and exports. As the Texas economy flourishes, there are ongoing opportunities to scale warehouses and services to meet rising customer needs within this expanding marketplace.

 

By capitalizing on Texas' unmatched access to Central and Southern markets coupled with a favorable regulatory environment,Accelera delivers a strategic logistics hub for companies nationwide.

 

Proximity to Energy and Petrochemical Industries

Energy production and associated manufacturing fuel Houston's economy. Several energy and chemical companies occupy regional warehouses for B2B distribution, creating clustering opportunities for 3PLs and suppliers. Access to this industrial customer base is invaluable for warehousing businesses.

 

Reasons to Partner with Our Houston Warehousing Services

As a full-service Houston logistics solutions provider focused exclusively on B2B supply chains, our warehouses are optimized solutions for companies moving and storing goods in the region. Accelera delivers a strategic logistics hub for companies nationwide.

 

Flexible, Scalable Solutions

Rather than long-term leases in our Houston warehouse space, Accelera offers flexible minimum pallet commitments that adapt easily to fluctuations in volume. This allows clients to scale storage and handling services up or down as needs change.

 

Labor Force and Cost Savings

One of the biggest challenges for companies operating warehouses is attracting and retaining qualified employees. The warehouse labor pool is constrained nationwide, and turnover rates for these positions are notoriously high. Accelera cuts these headaches for clients by handling warehouse labor-related responsibilities in-house.

Proximity to Customers Drives Savings

With multiple facilities located strategically around Houston, Accelera stores goods closer to end destinations. This proximity enables faster fulfillment times and critical last-mile delivery capabilities directly to client DCs. On average, companies save up to 30% on order handling costs using our regionalized network.

By keeping freight localized within Houston through our various warehouse locations, businesses can significantly lower their transportation carbon emissions per shipment in Texas, the Greater South, and the Central United States. Sustainability is achieved through optimum goods consolidation and routing efficiency.
