Custom Distribution

Murphy provides customized, value-added logistics solutions tailored to suit your business goals.

Murphy understands that no two customers are alike. Every supply chain is unique and can’t be optimized through run-of-the-mill logistics services. While other logistics service providers work on economies of scale, we leverage our capabilities to match specific customer demands. We’ve formed many long-term partnerships with clients that have diverse industry backgrounds.

More than a century of experience has taught us to understand our customer’s customers. Our portfolio of clients includes both B2C and B2B businesses of all scales and types. We are deeply invested in building inventory that solves a wide range of custom logistics challenges.

For heavy-hauls, we provide a wide range of flatbed trucks along with rigging, millwright, and erecting services. For e-commerce partners and omnichannel deliveries, we provide last-mile delivery, pick and pack, and reverse logistics. We also offer value-added distribution, including labeling, kitting, inspection, and compliance.
