Eco-Friendly Warehousing and Fulfillment

If eco-friendly distribution is important for your business, contact Hopkins Distribution today to discuss your specific third party logistics needs!

Products stored in Reno are not subject to severe changes in weather and the dry climate promotes long carton life for your packaging. For this reason, Hopkins facilities use an intricate fan system to pull cool air into the warehouse during the coolest hours of the night during the summer months. The cool air is circulated in the insulated warehouse to keep your products at the most efficient storage temperature. This allows us to store perishable items inexpensively and the ability to offer our clients energy efficient ways to store and distribute their goods.

Reno is home to over 60 less-than-load, truckload and small package carriers with the ability to service major metropolitan cities with overnight service at regular ground delivery rates. Reno also has railroad access with the Southern Pacific Railroad and an international airport supporting 12 major airlines. Due to the tremendous volume of shipping in and out of Northern Nevada, carriers are able to load direct schedules to all major markets, streamlining transit times and decreasing mileage.

Hopkins Distribution can accommodate over 16,780 product pallets, all of which are recycled from other carriers and reused. We never buy a new pallet unless it is specific to a client’s needs. Hopkins is also very careful with drain runoff and waste disposal in order preserve surrounding community areas.
