Total Warehouse Alliance
TEC owns inventory and material handling assets, manages warehouse staffing and operations

Building on the efficiencies of our Sole Source Alliance and the peace of mind that comes with our Vendor-Managed Inventory (VMI) Alliance, TEC's Total Warehouse Alliance provides a turnkey solution for warehouse operations and comprehensive asset handling and management.

With a Total Warehouse Alliance, TEC purchases your current warehouse inventory, equipment and supplies. We install our barcoding and automated replenishment systems and manage all warehouse staff. This is worry-free management, from ordering and delivery to inventory control and staff employment.
