Transportation & Logistics International - Summer 2015 - 65

TRUCKING & FREIGHTING
On the warehousing and distribution
side, Milan Supply Chain Solutions'
facilities are located in the heart of the
Southeast in western Tennessee, placing
it within a one-day drive of more than
three-fourths of the major markets in
the United States. Its four warehouse
and distribution centers total more than
925,000 square feet and offer customers bulk and rack storage capabilities.
Cowen says the company's warehousing
and distribution services are among the
most complete in the industry. "From a
warehousing standpoint, our advantage
is that we're flexible," Cowen says.
Senior Vice President David Dallas
says the company's distribution capabilities and size make it an ideal partner for
many customers because of the flexibility it can offer. He says Milan Supply

Chain Solutions occupies a sweet spot
between being a small company and a
major player. "We are large enough to
provide capacity without having to be so
large that our customers are not important to us," he says.
Renewing the Labor Pool
Dallas says the biggest issue facing
Milan Supply Chain Solutions is coping
with the aging driver pool and the effect
that has had on recruiting qualified
drivers. One of the biggest obstacles the
company has to contend with in this
regard is the fact that the Department
of Transportation requires commercial
truck drivers to be at least 21, making
the trucking industry something of a
last resort for many young people when
starting their careers. "We are working
on new ways to try to attract young

people into the trucking industry as a
career," Dallas says.
New Solutions
Milan Supply Chain Solutions expects
to continue building on its success by
expanding the services it provides its
many customers. Dallas says the company has achieved one of its major strategic goals by expanding its distribution
capabilities into middle Tennessee, and
it hopes to have distribution facilities in
the state in the near future.
Cowen says the company has high
hopes for the future as more potential
clients switch to third-party management of their warehousing and distribution operations. He notes that Milan
Supply Chain Solutions offers an all-inone solution.
