Roadblocks: Trimming Costs While Improving Regional Delivery Service

In 24/7 Express Logistics’ continuing series, “Roadblocks”, we are highlighting specific transportation and logistics challenges from real customers, and how the 24/7 Express Logistics team worked with them to build customized strategies and keep their business moving forward.

The Regional Service Roadblock:

Almo Corporation came to 24/7 Express Logistics searching for a better way to reach their customers in western Missouri and eastern Kansas. With “regular” LTL providers, they were experiencing issues with damage loss, delays in transit time and increasing costs. As an appliance and electronics distributor, delivery accuracy was critical, and customer satisfaction was the number one priority.

The 24/7 Express Logistics Solution:

247 Express Logistics was able to leverage their long-tenured expertise and strategic Midwest hubs to develop a custom “long-haul” LTL model for Almo. Once the 24/7 solution was put in place, Almo was able to deliver to customers with less damage, and on a more predictable delivery schedule than a “regular” LTL service could provide, while keeping freight costs in line, improving logistics efficiency all the way around.

How it’s Going:

24/7 Express Logistics continually works with Almo to improve and maintain high-efficiency logistics operations. The Almo Director of Transportation recently had this to say about their service with 24/7 Express Logistics, “It helps us greatly to know that 24/7 tendered freight will be delivered damage free, on time and for a competitive price. 24/7 has done this for Almo for many years. Their people offer great support, and the management and ownership have always been a pleasure to work with. 24/7 makes Almo look good to our customers – and that is very important to all of us. They are honest, reasonable, and flexible. If your transportation model fits with 24/7 Express Logistics expertise, then I would say move forward with exploring a relationship.  They are good people, for sure.”
