Many Pallets, Many Locations, Very Little Time

26th April 2011

A client recently called us because they were “in a bind and they knew TMI Sales could make it happen”.  Specifically, they had 27 pallets to ship to 26 Wal-Mart locations all across the U.S., and although it was Thursday, they needed quotes ASAP and promises that the loads could be picked up the following day, Friday.  Furthermore every pallet had to be delivered in only three business days without any exorbitant rush or air freight fees.

The TMI Sales team sprang  into action and got all of the shipments organized and quoted in a matter of hours.  Then, using a combination of zone skipping and consolidation techniques, and utilizing the weekend for travel to key distribution points, 100% of the pallets were delivered on time or ahead of schedule.  It was a perfect example of combining an extensive network of qualified carriers in all areas of the U.S., with the years of experience and the expertise to create and manage an unplanned consolidation and distribution operation on the fly.
