Posted on Aug 24, 2018 10:51:03 AM

OnTrac has opened the doors to their newest Southern California facility at a grand opening event that took place on June 21st. Approximately 65 guests attended the fiesta-themed event to enjoy Mexican food, watch presentations by OnTrac leadership, City officials and the local Chamber of Commerce. A ribbon cutting ceremony followed the presentations, and after a celebration with confetti guests were invited on a tour of the new building.

One speaker at the event, OnTrac Director of Engineering Jim Brownlow was able to give guests full details of the new building’s material handling systems capabilities. The Sun Valley material handling system was built for efficiency and expansion.  A more efficient system allows for packages to travel through the building and get on the road to their destination much quicker.  The new Sun Valley facility is roughly 250,000 square feet, and provides 6 unload doors and 5 load doors. This allows packages to get unloaded, sorted, on the road, and in the customer’s hands quickly and more efficiently.

In order to accommodate the new loading capabilities, the Primary Source Slide System operates in 5 different ways. This allows sorters to send packages 5 ways throughout the facility. The new material handling system allows for 9,000 packages to be sorted an hour, and that can expand up to 13,000 an hour. 38 motors power 2,700 feet of conveyor, and 5,500 feet of belting throughout the building. That is the equivalent to the length of roughly 24 football fields. With this new system, OnTrac has the capacity to handle the packages we have today, and room for growth in the future.

OnTrac is proud to be a member of the Southern California community and to contribute to the economic growth, job creation and career opportunities in Sun Valley. The number of employees has increased by 40%, totaling in over 100 employees in the Burbank facility. OnTrac is now offering opportunities such as AM and PM Package Handlers and Driver Checkout Clerk at the Sun Valley location.

OnTrac Opens Facility in Henderson, NV

Posted on Oct 20, 2015 6:00:00 AM

OnTrac is moving its Las Vegas facility to Henderson, Nevada. The new Henderson facility triples the size of the former Las Vegas facility, increasing from 42,000 square feet to 130,000 square feet.  The additional square feet are required due to the company’s growth in the Southern Nevada market.

The new facility will have a material handling system that will provide greater warehouse and delivery efficiencies. In addition, the Henderson facility has six unload and 14 load dock doors that will allow additional truck loads to move more efficiently in and out of the facility. The former Las Vegas facility only had four dock doors total. Las Vegas General Manager Shawn Rush said, “It’s a very exciting time to be at OnTrac. The facility move to Henderson will allow for service improvements and efficiencies while creating a better work environment for all employees. Plus the growth in Nevada alone will allow for OnTrac to expand upon our services while providing employment opportunities for the Henderson community.”

OnTrac may be hiring new employees to fill the facility. Currently at the Las Vegas facility there are 63 employees, while dispatching 61 service providers. The facility is located at 551 Courier Street, Henderson, Nevada 89011.

OnTrac is excited for the growth potential and the ability to get involved with the Henderson community. A member of the Henderson Chamber of Commerce, OnTrac looks forward to supporting local business as well. Henderson Chamber of Commerce President/CEO Scott Muelrath said, “With over 20 years’ experience in the industry, OnTrac is a welcome addition to the Southern Nevada business community for competitive pricing and proven delivery service.  Welcome to Henderson OnTrac!”
