Over the last several years, logistics planning has moved from behind the scenes to the boardroom, and its foundational role in the success of a business has become increasingly visible. Rising costs and capacity and labor shortages, combined with growing consumer pressure, have added to existing logistics complexities. It’s clearer than ever that effective, strategic supply chain operations are not only essential for growth but key for survival.
Companies are feeling the effects of this evolving market, understanding supply chain logistics and transportation management as critical value differentiators and increasing their expenditure to ensure performance. In the U.S. alone, business logistics costs increased by 22.4% in 2021, reaching a cool $1.85 trillion. At Deliveright, we ensure the value of our tools matches the investment. Our mission includes expanding our network to better meet the growing demands of the industry, and you, our valued customers.
That’s why we’re thrilled to introduce our nationwide B2B LTL Distribution Program, backed by the same technology and service quality you have come to expect from Deliveright. As the economy emerges from the pandemic, the surge in e-commerce orders going direct to consumers has overwhelmed the LTL industry. Companies are working to restore their manufacturing capacity and restock depleted inventories, increasing volume while facing a labor shortage. Deliveright’s nationwide B2B LTL program expands our service to customers that ship heavy or non-conveyable goods nationwide in lower volumes. The program provides pickup and delivery service for North Carolina, Virginia, and California vendors who are shipping to retailers, receivers, and commercial locations. It is cloud-based and focuses on capacity optimization, allowing brands and delivery partners to maximize space inside vehicles, and providing full visibility and transparency around shipping and costs through Grasshopper.
By adding this program to our already expansive white glove delivery network, we can offer many business benefits, including:
- Faster speed / shorter delivery times
- More competitive rates
- Real-time tracking powered by Grasshopper
- Dedicated trailers to transport goods = lower damage rates
- Improved customer experience
If you’re a small to medium-sized business, you likely know that managed LTL providers are scarce, and those available are generally add-ons and organized manually. We believe this is a problem worth correcting. Every company should have access to the same technology as major retailers and delivery partners, leveling the playing field in a fiercely competitive market.
