Taylored Services, LLC. Named a Multichannel Merchant Top 3PL for 2019

Taylored Services, LLC has been named a Multichannel Merchant Top 3PL for 2019, and included it in a listing of leading third-party logistics providers selected by the editors of Multichannel Merchant.

Given the explosion of ecommerce and the increasing number of 3PLs in the marketplace, Multichannel Merchant has created this unique resource to vet 3PL providers as a value-added service for its audience. The online resource is a searchable directory for merchants looking for a qualified 3PL.

We developed our Top 3PL listing as a valuable resource for merchants. Each company on the list has been selected based on its industry experience, range of capabilities and ability to handle high order flow during peak periods.”

The company profiles in the MCM Top 3PL listing include vital information to help merchants in their selection process, including key capabilities, average annual client order volume, top merchandise categories handled, facility locations and more.

Hydro Engineering Inc. Containerized Equipment Rooms Include All Systems Required for a Complete Vehicle or Equipment Wash Rack

Hydro Engineering Inc containerized equipment rooms start with either 20’ or 40’ custom built containers. Equipment needed to complete customer wash racks will determine the container size required for equipment installation.

Once equipment and vehicle wash rack requirements are determined, 3D modeling of containerized equipment room is next. Electrical, plumbing, HVAC are laid out and installed. Pressure washers (up to 4 each), wash water filtration and recycling equipment, chemical mixing, foam spraying systems are installed, tested and all equipment is certified to UL, CE and CSA standards. We now have a complete containerized equipment room that is ready to connect on location to water and electric power. With a fluid connection between Hydrosite containerized equipment room and existing wash bay, the fully operational wash rack is ready to go.

Factors that determine if a containerized equipment room should be considered.

1. Is there space available for equipment installation within exiting facility? 
2. Is there a requirement for possible wash rack relocation?

Available space is an issue solved with a Hydrosite containerized equipment room. They are weather resistant, freeze protected containers that can be placed wherever space is available. If relocation of wash rack equipment is required, simply disconnect power and water and move. This provides a big advantage over permanently installed equipment within existing buildings.

Hydrosite containerized equipment rooms are easily connected to existing concrete wash bays but become even more flexible when vehicle and equipment wash racks connected to them are also portable. Hydropad portable wash racks, configured to any size required for equipment or vehicle wash racks.
