Let us reduce your transportation costs and speed your shipments with these best practices:
Optimized distribution networks– Strategic DC network configuration can help you to deliver product faster, reduce transportation costs and improve service. Choose from our conveniently located facilities nationwide. With multiple DCs in the right locations, you can reach more than 98% of the U.S. within 2 days via ground service, helping to reduce the need for expedited shipments.
State-of-the-art systems– Our OMS allows us to view and route orders in real time and fill orders from the facility with available inventory closest to the customer for faster shipping. Our sophisticated transportation management systems (TMS), shipment planning tools with predictive modeling, and route optimization capabilities help to ensure cost-effective, timely deliveries.
Economies of scale – Buying power and an established carrier network give us flexibility to select the best mode/level of service for each shipment at the best price. In addition, we can help save on outbound freight costs by negotiating rates, pooling parcel packages and leveraging postal work-share options like presorting and drop-shipping. We also can work with carriers to coordinate later pickup times, so more orders can be fulfilled same-day.
We’re always on the lookout for new ways to help you drive costs down and better serve your customers. Contact us today!
