Moran Difference


Moran Industries logistics service is all about transformation.

For nearly forty years, we have been transforming our business and, in the process, transforming our customers into more efficient and profitable enterprises. We embrace a “Whatever It Takes” philosophy. We provide outsourcing of business services to U.S. manufacturers by allowing them to focus on their core competencies. Our customers see us as a one-stop resource that fulfills their multiple needs. Specific value-added services include: pick-and-pack; shrink wrapping; re-labeling; re-palletizing; record retention; and transloading – all of which take place inside Moran’s facilities.

Moran can also provide customers with individualized options such as complete build-to-suit warehouse solutions providing everything from soil erosion control engineering to the acquisition of government permits. “What differentiates us is that we are truly “full service.”


We will always invest in the technology and equipment needed to perform new and specific applications.

After one year of studying the best in the field, the executives at Moran chose the SSA Global 4000 Warehouse Management System. Considerable money can be saved and inventory levels reduced if a system will allow the transparency necessary for advanced tracking and monitoring of merchandise. Implementing the Global 4000 WMS meant that we could customize data capture on site in order to determine solutions for Moran customers’ current and future warehousing needs. Functions include:

  • Receiving
  • Put-away
  • Replenishment
  • Order estimation and scheduling
  • Picking to order
  • Performance measuring
  • Reporting requirements
  • Billing and processing
  • Kitting and process flow

With the Global 4000 we can retain and access information on demand.

Moran fulfills its customers’ transportation needs with our truck fleet and rail service. Rails are advantageous for certain customers, such as paper manufacturers, while other customers benefit by Moran’s truck fleet that covers a 300-mile radius with national service through LTL carriers. We also have the necessary infrastructure with nearly two million square feet of industrial real estate strategically located near major highway and rail systems. Our five facilities, all located in Central Pennsylvania, provide unique services. Whether it is the 185 loading docks with automatic dock plates, our indoor rail access or our cool space and 30-foot clear heighth buildings, Moran will do “Whatever It Takes” to meet your logistics needs.


Jack Moran had a vision to take existing, unused buildings and make them viable to the communities where these buildings were located.

And this is exactly what he did beginning in 1975. He wanted to buy big buildings that had been left standing empty as a result of the offshoring of manufacturing and rehab them for use as warehousing. He initiated the hugely successful enterprise with a single factory in Watsontown. After John D. Moran, Jr. joined his father in the business in 1987, the company experienced substantial growth and expanded into the five locations with two million square feet of storage that is Moran Industries today. John built upon the business direction that his father initiated and deployed additional capital to continue to rehab and upgrade the facilities, develop new facilities and market both old and new with a third-party warehousing initiative. No wonder Moran’s client list includes many Fortune 500 companies such as Del Monte, P&G, ConAgra, Corning and PPG. The Morans’ commitment to client service coupled with their commitment to rehabbing buildings and providing local industry make theirs a company that customers can trust, a company that literally delivers.


Moran Industries not only provides services, Moran actually changes the bottom line for their customers.

Moran Industries occupies an important place in the supply chain, as our warehousing initiatives enable us to perform “value-added” services to the captive product at an appropriate stage in that chain. With indoor rail service, we can provide up to 11 boxcars that can be loaded and unloaded in a sheltered environment. This offers additional protection to customers’ valuable commodities with efficient rail service. This compliments our existing railheads with 19 car capacity and 28 car storage. Our fleet of quick-connect equipment and automatic dock plates ensures smooth and safe distribution from truck to warehouse. Because we offer warehousing by the piece, the pallet or the square foot, our customers can choose the option that meets their needs and maximizes their investment. With locations in Watsontown, White Deer, Sunbury, Williamsport, Mechanicsburg, Harrisburg, Montgomery, and Gettysburg, we are poised to provide efficient storage and transport to major outlets.

In the past three years, Moran Industries has experienced 50-percent growth in business. Because of that growth, we now have the capacity for even more growth – for us and for our customers. Transform your business with Moran Industries.
