Posted May 12, 2019 07:10:06 While many companies offer “delivery through your own warehouses,” logistics companies like the one that manages the new Costco Wholesale Corp. warehouse near Seattle, Washington, are now making deliveries from their own warehouse, according to its owner.
The new warehouse, called Costco Wholsale Warehouse, is part of the new warehouse chain of Costco Wholestown, the company said.
The Costco Wholo warehouse is part a new Costco warehouse chain which is part the Costco WhOLESTown, a Costco Wholly company that manages warehouses for other businesses.
Costco Wholitown is part-owned by a subsidiary of the parent company, which is Costco Whole Foods.
The company announced in March that it will move to its own warehouse facility in downtown Seattle to better handle the increasing volume of orders from suppliers and other businesses, including Costco.
Costco has struggled with warehouse costs, which have risen in recent years as the company’s demand for food and other products has grown.
Costco said in a statement on Monday that the new facility will have a higher capacity and offer faster delivery speeds.
The delivery is scheduled to start this week.
In a separate statement, Costco said it was investing $2.4 million in the new space and that the company would invest more in warehouse infrastructure in the future.
It said it will use new technology to offer delivery to warehouses with “higher occupancy levels” that are more than 30% full.
Costco warehouses can now hold up to 8,500 orders a day.
