Need a space for your inventory? We'll make space for you! Hand your inventory over to our expert staff. We'll sort and slot it, ever so carefully.

Savvy retailers know that ever-changing manufacturer regulations and consumers needs mean that product labels have to constantly change. We're here to help.
The team here at On Time Delivery can provide you with new labels or relabel products, giving them new value. Label change examples include making price adjustments, changing the language on your label or refreshing the packaging.
Barcodes and Radio-Frequency Identification Tags are identifiers that can assist retailers in a multitude of ways, the most impactful of which is automated data collection. Interested in this feature? We can help!
Does your product need to be boxed and packed before shipping? You've come to the right place. We specialize in ensuring that your product is put together in a way that visually represents your brand.
Need several products bundled, or kitted, together? Check out our product kitting services.
Palletizing is the automatic process of stacking, storing and transporting products on a pallet. Our goal? To reduce stress, pain, time and costs associated with the manual form of this work.
Kitting is the process of grouping individual SKUs or products together into one kit/unit. (For example, a subscription box or gift set)
Sub-Assembly is the process of grouping a unit together that will eventually be part of a larger final item.
Our products are not always as perfect as we would like them to be. Here at On Time Delivery, when life gives us lemons, we make lemonade.
Should a product fail to meet manufacturer requirements at the time of shipping or if the item is returned by a customer, we will rework the item. In other words, we will do our best to make adjustments to the product, so that some product margin can be collected.
Quality Control here at On Time Delivery includes inspections to ensure that your products are of the highest quality before they head out to your customer. Here are a few things we look at during our inspections:
- Product Safety (defective parts, mislabeled products)
- Product Compliance
- Item Quantity and Packing Quality

Pick, Pack, and Ship is the process taken when a customer orders a product. First, we'll choose the correct product(s) and the perfect box/packing materials. Then, we'll ship your product(s) off to the customer.
Sounds easy, right? Well, when you start to factor in an increasing number of SKUs, customers, and orders, things get complicated. On Time Delivery is here to streamline the process for you.
With vendor Inventory Management or VMI, the vendor is in charge of managing and replenishing the manufacturer's inventory.
This is the approach we take here at On Time Delivery and Warehouse, as we feel it takes the weight off of you, the customer. You can easily access your inventory remotely and securely via our convenient up to date web portal.
Need to track your sales orders and transactions? Our Purchase Order Management system helps you do just that!
Vendor routing compliance allows you to set up requirements for vendors your company works with to ensure that they comply with routing instructions.
Pool Distribution is a form of shipping, similar to Less Than Truckload (LTL), where you are able to ship your product along with others in a single truck.
However, unlike LTL shipping, your own orders will be consolidated together. (On the contrary, with LTL shipping, your orders would share a truck with other companies.) These orders are often distributed to various destinations across a particular geographic region.
The major benefit of pool distribution is reduced cost on shipping.
Do you have a time-sensitive delivery, such as perishable inventory, that needs to arrive at a vendor with a sense of urgency?
Call on On Time Delivery for our cross-docking services. Cross-docking is the process whereby products are distributed from the supplier to the customer or retail chain with limited/no handling or warehouse/storage time.
Is your goal to find efficiency through multiple shipping means? Call on On Time for our trans-loading services. In the world of trans-loading, shipments are transferred from one mode of transportation to another (often due to necessity). For example, an international shipment by air transferred to a truck, which is taken into a facility.
