Safe Chain Solutions. Safe Chain Solutions is a full service Third Party Logistics provider located in Dorchester County, Maryland. Dorchester County was a perfect fit when choosing the location of our startup business. The tax benefits here are extremely friendly to small businesses, which is key to the success and growth of a new business. Another major attraction that appealed to us was the ability of being located in a HUBZone. Obtaining a HUBZone certification could potentially increase our revenue by over 25% in the next year. The county’s generous labor and commercial property costs, combined with the strategic location, have given us the ability to compete on a national level. Safe Chain Solutions wouldn’t be where we are today without working closely with the Dorchester County Economic Development Department. Due to Safe Chain’s hectic schedule, our first two meetings both fell on “non-work” days. Without hesitation, the Economic Development team took time away from their personal lives to meet with us. Seeing this type of dedication and support made our decision to start our business here that much easier. Since then they have helped us on multiple occasions. Dorchester County gave our business the best chance to succeed, and we’re happy to call it home to Safe Chain Solutions.

Warwick Fulfillment Solutions. Warwick Fulfillment Solutions continued to grow in 2012 as a result of new clients in the apparel industry. A footwear client company had launched a search for a fulfillment partner with product category expertise, the flexibility to meet abbreviated implementation time lines, and the IT know-how to connect to multiple software platforms. Additionally, a New York City–based clothing company that traditionally markets its products through major retailers launched its first consumer website. Both clients have entrusted their e-commerce, fulfillment, and customer care to the Warwick Fulfillment Solutions team. Our continued growth is also credited to the caliber of personnel we hire within the county and region, who work in upper management, operations, and our warehouse. Clients who visit our facility give high marks for the Warwick team’s overall track record and dedication to serving their needs. Dorchester County is truly a strategic location for our operation.
