Custom Storage

Securely and safely store your products for transport with Murphy’s custom storage

Warehousing and custom storage services have been at the heart of Murphy’s business for more than 100 years. We own and operate 12 logistics campuses in Minnesota and Missouri, enabling businesses of all sizes to get cost-effective custom 3PL services.

With more than 3 million square feet of long-term and short-term storage space, we can fulfill a wide range of warehousing demands such as rack storage, bulk storage, retail storage, food-grade, industrial logistics, and outdoor storage. The Murphy network of on-demand fulfillment centers allows you to place your inventory strategically throughout the Midwest to save time and money.


Murphy focuses on the needs of individual businesses. We also understand that shipping costs affect small businesses more than anyone else. That is why we offer custom 3PL warehousing and fulfillment solutions to store and move inventory according to your requirements. Whether you want a customized area for huge industrial equipment or smaller spaces for your products, we provide cost-effective solutions for every scale and size. You can always scale with Murphy as your 3PL brokerage partner.


Many of Murphy’s logistics campuses are connected directly through private spurs by Class I rail carriers, including Burlington Northern Santa Fe, Union Pacific, Canadian National, and Canadian Pacific. We have both indoor and outdoor rail logistics accommodations. We also operate our own fleet of asset-based carriers to help transport your inventory across the Midwest. Additionally, we are partnered with 3PL brokerage shippers so that your orders are promptly picked, packed, and shipped across the country.


We take both logistics certifications and warehouse certifications seriously. Our warehouses are registered with the FDA/USDA and follow HACCP guidelines. Murphy is proud to hold Level 2 SQF certification which requires rigorous quality control over the handling, storage, distribution, and transportation of food products. Furthermore, our Minneapolis logistics campus is a custom storage certified organic handler under the USDA National Organic Program standards.


With over 250,000 square feet of commercial outdoor storage space at our Shakopee location, we have more than enough area to meet a variety of storage needs. This expansive space is not only spacious but it is also well-protected with excellent security features. The security and integrity of your items in storage are ensured by the formidable fencing, gates, and professional guard shack that surround our facility.

This large industrial outdoor storage space offers incredible flexibility. It’s the perfect approach to storing weather-resistant goods economically while maintaining their protection. Additionally, it provides a practical temporary location for bulky equipment that is made to endure outdoor exposure. Our Shakopee location has the ideal outdoor storage solution to fit your needs, whether you need short-term storage options or a secure place to store for your valuable equipment.
