Welcome to
Carolina Public Warehouse

Thank you for visiting our website.

When CPW was founded in 1957, the public warehousing industry was unlike we know today. For one thing, public warehousing has now grown into 3PL (third party logistics) and provides a vast array of services that were never considered in 1957.

While many of the changes have come about due to advancements in information technology, many changes have more to do with expanded service offerings in logistics and distribution. One example that illustrates this is the 'Just-in-Time' inventory model where a business will depend on a logistics company such as CPW to manage, allocate and distribute their inventory at just the right moment.

These days, it's simply not enough to store product in a dry, safe warehouse facility. A logistics manager has to know that their third party logistics partner will provide cost effective, efficient and reliable services.

At CPW, we have been meeting and exceeding our customer's expectations for many years and this will always be our goal. No matter how much any given industry advances, there are constants that should never change: optimum customer service, integrity, dependability, responsiveness, commitment and a willingness to devote time, energy and resources to keeping our people well trained and fully qualified to meet your requirements.

If you are seeking a third party logistics partner in the Carolinas or Virginia, we would appreciate your consideration of Carolina Public Warehouse. We are confident you will be completely satisfied with the service and commitment we will provide.

But what does this mean to you?

This number of rail slots puts CPW a step ahead of its local counterparts because we can accommodate larger shipments and do so with greater efficiency. When it comes to managing your inventory ---especially in a just-in-time environment--- we have the inbound logistics to get your products to our dock quickly and with minimal delays.

In addition to this, our office is adjacent to the central Norfolk-Southern office (CYO) in Winston-Salem. We work closely with our partners at Norfolk-Southern to ensure that your products arrive on schedule and are properly inventoried. Our rock-solid relationship with Norfolk-Southern makes a qualitative difference every day.
