OTR Fall 2019

As we start the 4th quarter of 2019 and look at holidays right around the corner, we at Advance are extremely thankful for the partnerships we have built with our customers.

While the economic climate continues to fluctuate, the outlook for material handling is expected to decelerate to some degree, but overall, remains on the positive side.  Advance has ramped up its automation business to help customers like you address your storage and throughput goals with technology.  If you haven’t seen our Rover, check it out here (Advance Storage Automation).

We believe in providing the highest quality product and service in the industry.  If you have a warehouse project coming up, we’d appreciate the opportunity to help you out.

Here’s to a great Q4 and a happy, healthy holiday season.
