Delivering large purchases to a customer's home or business used to be simple: find a reputable local provider or buy a few trucks to do it yourself. Most people bought their products close to home, and few retailers had the resources to get them delivered quickly. It wasn't a point of significant differentiation.
Times have changed. Retailers now cover huge territories, and online and catalog channels allow your customers to buy from virtually anywhere. Today's retailers need reliable carriers for local markets as well as extended regional or national coverage. Getting products delivered, of course, is only half the story. Doing it in a fast, safe, and courteous manner is what sets a brand apart from the competition.
