Meeting the Midwest’s Storage, Warehousing, Transport and Distribution Needs for Three Decades
Operated Entirely by Citi-Cargo & Storage Staff for Superior Customer Service
Citi-Cargo & Storage has provided warehousing and transportation solutions to customers in a wide range of industries for more than 30 years. Because we are locally owned and operated, we don’t route customers to a call center in some other part of the world, we respond to your needs quickly, effectively, and personally. We also staff our warehouses and own our trucks, instead of contracting out those services – rare in our industry.
Our sales force has more than 100 combined years of warehouse, container, and trailer rental and leasing experience and can answer all your questions. Additionally, our customer-service driven team of dispatch and operations personnel will ensure that your delivery, transportation, or service request is fulfilled as promised.
When we say, “Your business is important to us,” we mean it. We appreciate and value the opportunity to be of service to your company. Give us a call and find out what Citi-Cargo & Storage can do for you.
