That’s why you need a logistics partner that truly understands the meaning of “handle with care.” With physicians, patients and their families relying on you to deliver, every detail counts. That’s where we come in. Clients trust King for everything from managing their inbound supply chain to getting the most out of the ongoing innovation in the field. If your business owns a novel technology in need of a custom supply chain or storage solution, don’t wait to give us a call. We’ve got a lot of novel ways to make it happen.

TEMP-CONTROLLED WAREHOUSING

Meeting regulations. Exceeding expectations.

Featuring 101,000 sq ft of flexible storage, our Minneapolis-based facility adheres to the most stringent environmental regulations. Our team operates with the knowledge that proper handling and regulatory oversight require organic goods be separated. Case in point, we store our pet food client’s materials in an entirely separate building with its own set of unique protocols. So if you’re looking for food-grade cGMP warehouse space without the food, you’ve come to the right place. With King, you can rest assured that your products and raw materials will be stored safely — never next to raw meat.

Consistent temperature checks? Check.

For your temp-sensitive materials, up-to-date data is critical. That’s why temperature readings are captured every 15 minutes with a threshold set at 15 – 25 degrees Celsius (59 – 77 degrees Fahrenheit), ensuring your products are always stored in the correct environment. With each of our standard operating procedures (SOPs) referencing a specific subsection of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Title 21, we can be audit ready whenever it’s needed.

If it’s not recorded, it didn’t happen.

We take your peace of mind very seriously. Recorded logs are available on-demand for our clients, documenting cleanings, pest control, inspections and SOP checklists. And our records aren’t just on paper — everything happens under video surveillance. Warehouse security is strategically implemented throughout our property. Doors are locked and monitored. If you’re not approved personnel, you’re not getting in.

To get an idea of just how right our temp-controlled facility is for your business, you’ve really got to see it (and feel it) for yourself. Want to schedule a tour?
That’s totally cool with us.

Not only does King help medical device, biotech and pharmaceutical companies manage their inventory and move it via local cartage solutions, we ship product to market. Getting your goods where they need to be, safely, efficiently and in the right condition — that’s what drives our team.

Case Study

Prescribing a better solution in the pharmaceutical industry.

Our client, a pharmaceutical manufacturer, was looking for a partner to handle temp-controlled warehousing for their growing company. With two of their own warehouses at capacity, they needed a new solution based in Minneapolis, MN.

Their requirements included on-demand reporting of all temperature recordings within a cGMP certified, food-grade warehouse that didn’t store food or hazmat near their inventory. What’s more, they needed help transferring their raw materials and products between MN-based facilities with local cartage carriers who could meet their strict shipping protocols.

The King solution

King developed a program that includes product storage while our client awaits FDA approvals. We provide visibility tools that report on inventory management, temperature readings, transportation performance, pest control and cleanliness protocols.

We also developed a totally customized, dedicated transportation solution. Before a truck is loaded, it’s checked for compliance with SOPs. The product is never in the same truck with other product, with the added restriction of no food equipment.

A critical success factor included the implementation of an escalation process. Our client is immediately notified of any and all necessary updates such as temperature discrepancies, power outages, security breaches and transportation delays, just to name a few.

We made visitation easy and convenient. Our facility is always at audit-ready status for our client’s quality assurance team.

The results

With King’s flexible warehouse space allowing them to store their raw materials and products safely and to code, our client freed up their own space to expand their manufacturing operation.

Our clients now enjoy end-to-end visibility with real-time online tools providing status updates on inventory management in storage, as well as shipments in transit.

King created efficiencies for when products receive FDA approval. By having the product ready to ship in the warehouse, our clients can get their products to market with greater speed and agility than ever.

Client Quote
