Uline - The Shipping Supply Specialists. It's not something we do, it's something we are. An industry leader in the sale of shipping supplies, Uline is experiencing tremendous growth. In business for over 30 years, we've grown into a 628-page catalog and over 29,000 products.


In 1980, after recognizing a local need for a shipping supply distributor, Liz and Dick Uihlein started Uline from their basement. Their first product was the H-101 carton sizer (still offered today). It sold far beyond their expectations and encouraged the Uihleins to add more products to the catalog the following year.


Today, with over 3,600 employees across North America, Uline has branches near Chicago (IL), Minneapolis (MN), Allentown (PA), Los Angeles (CA), Atlanta (GA), Dallas (TX), Seattle (WA), Toronto (Canada), and Tijuana (Mexico). In 2010, Uline moved into their new Corporate Headquarters, located between Chicago (IL) and Milwaukee (WI). Our latest branch, in Monterrey (Mexico), opened in late 2011. 


Our success is a result of our vision. We are dedicated to delivering the highest level of quality and service in the industry. To carry out this vision, we need bright, energetic employees. We offer top pay, great benefits, and an opportunity to grow in a progressive and successful workplace. Uline is dedicated to developing the business and the talents of its employees. Come grow with us!
