Trucking Companies
Selecting the right trucking company is very important.  You want your merchandise to arrive quickly, undamaged, for a reasonable price.

With the multitude of shippers available, how do you choose the right one?  

Talk to people in your industry about which carriers they are happiest with.  

Ask your vendor which carriers they recommend, based on price, timeliness, and professionalism.  Different vendors have different deals with trucking companies, and it is a good idea to ask which shipping company is best for you.

If you establish a pattern of using the same shipper over a period of time, you will be more likely to be able to negotiate a  better deal.  Getting your wholesale merchandise to your store in a timely manner is critical to your success.
