Distribution Center Security
Sunstates has extensive experience providing security programs to distribution center clients. We demonstrate a vast understanding of the unique challenges and common concerns associated with this market. For instance, in a distribution center setting, we know that a security officer’s focus on safety is equally as important as security. We recognize the inherent challenges of protecting a high-traffic environment where expensive products, supplies, and equipment are moving in and out. Additionally, a variety of contractors, workers, and visitors pass through sporadically. We have the team and strategy to ensure top-notch, professional security at your distribution center.
Distribution Center Environment
The open-access environment and movement from both people and vehicles create a complex system that requires a specific skill set for the officer. You’ll need a security officer who is customer service oriented, very alert, and effective in the enforcement of access control and inventory management. Sunstates can provide that officer for you with continuous training.
Officers act as an essential part of your loss prevention program by partnering with your team to manage access, track inventory, and ensure that product is routed to the correct destination. Our officers serve as a welcoming presence for employees, truck drivers and visitors. In addition to managing access at a gatehouse and patrolling the premises, our officers can perform specialized functions such as checking truck seals and bills of lading, creating customized reporting metrics, monitoring incoming/outgoing inventory and ensuring on-site activities comply with OSHA, FDA and other regulatory guidelines.
