Specialized Birmingham Trucking Company Expands Warehouse and Logistics Division to accommodate Growing Demand for Warehouse Storage and Staging Services
Telecom Transport Services has more than doubled the size of its Birmingham, Alabama storage facility to 19,000 square feet. The full-service trucking company has expanded its secure commercial storage division that serves telecommunications, construction, utilities, manufacturing and retail businesses.
“With construction on the rebound, we’re seeing growing demand for warehouse storage and staging services. Builders are storing high-value materials in secure facilities rather than on-site; we can store and organize materials for quick and easy distribution,” said Telecom Transport Services president Sue Watkins.
Telecom Transport Services is fully certified to transport and store hazardous materials including lithium-ion batteries and serves as a staging facility for battery recycling and disposal. The company provides customers with inventory and logistics management, offering the advantages of a large-scale distribution center. “Our warehouse expansion is a response to the Birmingham area’s growing demand for ‘last mile’ execution, heavy hauling, crane hoisting and hazmat materials management, and we are thrilled to be part of the region’s growth,” said Watkins.

To say warehouses are booming is an understatement. Normally, we think of “Amazon” when we think of warehouses. But there are over 1,800 projects going on in the warehouse category in the planning stage alone, with 979 owners. Amazon work represents only 2% of that total volume of new warehouses. In fact, cities and towns are building warehouses at a surprising clip – and represent 14% of the new planning projects. It’s really an amazing market representing the known players like Costco, Dollar General or F.W. Webb with the not-so-familiar but very important industries like healthcare, industrial and retail (i.e., Autozone).
