Retail Consolidation not an Option?

Let RJW Help You With the Next Best Solution.

For certain retailers, a Retail Consolidation program may not be available currently. In those instances, RJW has developed Internal Consolidation, or Volume LTL offerings, where RJW combines shipments within its warehouses destined for the same retailer distribution centers to provide volume discounts and more direct LTL routing.

Contact us to discuss our Volume LTL services.

For Any Shipment Option, RJW is Your Retail Logistics Expert

Whether utilizing Retail Consolidation, LTL shipping, or some other shipping method, serving major retailers demands expertise in the unique supply chain requirements of that retailer. Expertise that a typical generalist 3PL or trucking firm does not have.

Mistakes in the retail supply chain can be costly—from supply chain fines for low On-Time and In-Full scores to out-of-stocks and lost sales. Don’t trust your supply chain to a generalist 3PL.
