Your Trusted Partner for Demanding 3PL & Forwarder Distributions - Decades of Expertise, Nationwide Reach, and Unmatched Efficiency.
We are the ‘go to’ guys for 3PL’s and Forwarders controlling national and/or regional distributions to multiple cities in the South Eastern US, and our experience goes back a full decade on these demanding programs.
3PL’s/Forwarders require certain abilities and proven competencies from regional carriers/last-mile providers because these programs tend to be for Fortune 500 end-user customers, and are compressed into short time periods.
Every distribution and roll-out tends to have different inbound receiving processes, warehouse sort/segregate/stage and handling instructions and delivery and reporting requirements. Some may just be a simple daytime drop to a dock, but others can be very specific and complex, and some delivery programs may be to hundreds, or even thousands, of retail locations during a short period of time.Your agent must be well prepared to handle shipments of various products, such as cosmetic displays, store fixtures, mannequins, POP displays, and kiosks all the while knowing how to move the products efficiently and as quickly as possible.
We also establish direct EDI or email reporting as each inbound shipment is received and each delivery is made, and consolidated billing into a single invoice.
We also know when to say “No, this is not something that we can do well”, and commit to provide a quick and honest response if it does it fit within our wheelhouse.
Special Service Freight services 2500 zip codes and distributions may run from as few as fifty locations and in excess of six hundred.
The task may be as simple as a dock delivery, or it may require pre-storage and building of consolidated loads, with prior or on-site pre-assembly, debris removal, return of replaced assets etc.
