The most important aspect of an automobile is quality. Allen Logistics helps to safeguard against damaged parts through our container management services. We clean and repair pallets and returnable containers, as well as sort and package products to ensure a safe delivery. We store automotive components as large as transmissions and as small as nuts and bolts.

Consumer Goods

With the amount of product leading consumer goods companies move day to day, organization is paramount in eliminating error, increasing efficiency and raising profits. Allen Logistics provides inventory management services – sorting, labeling, banding and shrink wrapping, sequencing and warehousing – to help consumer goods companies prepare their products for distribution in a timely, effective manner.


Energy and utility companies play a large role in the Tri-State area’s economy. These companies often require unique storage and shipping needs for items such as large and various-sized supplies and tools.
