For over four decades, Keller Logistics Group has been assisting a wide variety of manufacturing and retail clients with their day-to-day logistics needs — from trucking and freight to packing and warehousing. Keller Warehousing & Distribution, LLC became an affiliate of Keller Logistics Group in 1998 with a single 90,000 square-foot warehouse in Defiance, Ohio. Now run by Bryan Keller, our second-generation, family-owned-and-operated warehousing affiliate has expanded to over 2.5 million square feet of dry warehouse space at 7 locations across the country.

We make food safety our #1 priority, with AIB certification and strict sanitation standards. With food-grade warehouses in Ohio, North Carolina, and Texas, you’re never far from your supply chain.

We have particularly extensive experience with pipe insulation, fiberglass insulation, and fiberglass roofing, though we are not limited to these few items.

Over the past two decades, Keller Warehousing and Distribution
With over 2.5 million square feet of space across the heart of the country, it’s easy to find a convenient facility for your business. Choosing the right warehousing and distribution site depends upon the type of space needed and most importantly, the location; including proximity to resources and to labor, local ordinance restrictions, and accessibility to rails, ports, and highways. The ideal warehouse location will depend on price and flexibility to grow with you. Practical considerations like bay size, available storage space, dock doors, and ceiling height are all factors to consider. Keller Warehousing & Distribution offers a number of locations that optimize all these concerns.
Select warehouse facilities offer both dedicated and shared space
Dedicated warehouse space – dedicated warehouse space may be necessary if you have an abundance of materials or products to store or your products cannot co-mingle with other products. With this arrangement, the expenses of us running and managing the warehouse; including inventory shipping & receiving, labor, equipment, utilities, and technology are that of the sole tenant. Large companies may like the freedom and fixed month-to-month costs.
Shared warehouse space – Shared warehouses have more than one tenant and expenses are spread out among the clients who are also using the space. The costs adjust with the volume and activity of the business making it easier for small to medium-sized businesses to scale up or down if necessary. Companies that are new to the area also take advantage of shared warehouse space while waiting for dedicated space to become available.
