St. Charles, ILL. (PRWEB) January 10, 2006
Assemble Connect, Inc., a distributor of custom manufactured assemblies, today announced it has signed a logistics arrangement with UPS to use their Trade Direct offering. This agreement supports domestic and international shipping via air, sea and truck and will speed time to market by 5 to 15 working days at lower freight costs to most of the company’s customers.
“A large part of our business involves sourcing overseas,” Eric Wendt, president of Assemble Connect, “We have been using a myriad of different companies to support the many needs of our customers. We have used UPS, but up until now just for small package freight.“
UPS representatives Howard Smith and Mitch Cohn helped create an agreement that covers virtually all aspects of shipping for Assemble Connect.
For Assemble Connect shipments large or small, sea or air, UPS Trade Direct provides labels and materials and direct-to-customer delivery. In addition to the delivery time reductions, the process actually reduces overall freight costs by 10% or more by dramatically reducing reshipment costs for Assemble Connect. The bottom line for the Company is improved customer service and delivery time.
With first deliveries already complete the company is confident that UPS and Trade Direct will meet Assemble Connect’s needs. Mr. Wendt says “Our Company is growing at an incredible rate and freight costs are a substantial portion of our expenses. The agreements with UPS will be a cornerstone of our growth in the future.”
