Currently providing valuable DCM services across 12 unique warehouses, totaling more than three million square feet, Covenant is a proven logistics leader that delivers on its promises.

A customer-first approach, starting on day one

When first asked to develop a new distribution center for clients, Covenant draws upon its history of building deep relationships. An experienced team of experts meets one-on-one with customers to define requirements, KPIs and other key measurements, and all deliverables, as well to learn about any pain points experienced in the past. The company then closely collaborates with new clients to develop personalized warehousing and logistics solutions that not only drive meaningful value and exceed set goals, but are also agile enough to meet changing future needs. This approach has continuously helped the company surpass client expectations across all areas of its business.

"Covenant brings more to the table than our integrated transportation and warehousing services." said Jim Massengill, senior vice president, warehouse operations. "Our goal is to build customer partnerships that deliver meaningful value, saving our customers time and money. Above all, we prioritize responsiveness and transparency across all interactions, while focusing on the fundamentals of operations to deliver repeatable, dependable service."
