Warehousing and Distribution

The Austin Lighthouse Warehousing and Distribution Center provides integrated logistics solutions primarily for the Department of Defense. Our warehousing facilities proudly provide the opportunity of employment for more than 100 visually-impaired and blind Texans. We process thousands of orders daily, receive an average of ten truckloads of new merchandise each day, ship out 5,000-6,000 packages daily, operate forklifts and turret trucks. The complexity of our processes requires a robust months-long training program, use of new technologies, automation and adaptive equipment.
