When many people think of shipping, they immediately think of providers like the USPS or UPS but not a third-party logistics provider. At FreightCenter, however, our hope is to change that way of thinking by offering ground and expedited package shipping in addition to our full line of freight services.
FreightCenter customers consolidate various shipping activities through one service provider, saving them time and money. Our customers needed a one-stop-shop for managing inbound and outbound shipments, and that need included a parcel option.
Whether shipping packages or freight, FreightCenter makes the process seamless. From obtaining accurate quotes to printing shipping labels to tracking shipments online—FreightCenter customers can now do it all without having to fill out complicated forms or register a corporate account. The service is open to anyone who ships—businesses and individuals.
In July, we launched the service as a beta to customers who demanded an easy parcel option before the peak 2017 holiday season hit. We saved an electronics manufacturer out of Arizona who ships between 30 and 40 parcel packages a month, more than $2 on each expedited shipment to retail stores. And, a Minnesotan bio science company that ships promotional items to potential customers, saved nearly 50% on their cost of ground shipping.
People that ship a variety of goods several times a month can benefit from having a single point of contact for all their shipments—big or small. There is still time before the rush of the holidays. To get started, call (855) 842-8016 or visit FreightCenter.com/Parcel.
