American Group is a full-service logistics provider for both domestic and international freight. They offer their customers the widest range of options in the industry by working with an established network of trusted carriers. Because of their large buying power they are also able to provide competitive rates to their clients of all sizes, helping small and medium-sized businesses compete with larger producers.
American Group takes special pride in serving the logistics needs of eco-friendly companies manufacturing green products that reduce damage to the environment. These innovative companies are often competing on an uneven playing field with manufacturers that do not have the same conscientious values when it comes to the environment, and American Group welcomes the opportunity to deliver prices and services to them that significantly increase their chances of success. They do this by customizing every load they ship, true to their motto “Shipping. Simplified.” Taking the individual needs of the client and the load into consideration, American Group finds the right carrier at the right time to balance fast delivery with affordable rates. The specific demands of the job are met through a variety of carriers that include Full truckload (FTL), Less than truckload (LTL), Full container load (FCL), Less than container load (LCL), or Rail and Air carriers. Expedited Hot Shot shipments are offered too. It is this affordable and personalized attention to detail that attracts eco-friendly companies and others to American Group’s services.
Partnering with environmentally responsible clients, especially those that create innovative products designed to reduce the creation of greenhouse gases, highlights American Group’s commitment to being as eco-friendly as possible. Two of their clients on the leading edge of producing environmentally friendly products are Zip Fires and Nature’s Grilling Products.
Zip Fires produces Green Heat fire logs that are made from 100% recycled food-grade wax boxes, reducing both the damaging effects of logging and the amount of material that ends up in landfills. They have been producing innovative eco-friendly products since long before they were in demand. Begun in Ireland in 1947, Zip Fires has earned their spot as Europe's leading manufacturer of home fireplace logs and ignition products of any kind, not just those produced with the environment’s health in mind. Green Heat fire logs are carried by major retailers, mass merchandisers, and stores specializing in green and natural products. They are a popular choice for eco-friendly Bed and Breakfast owners to use in their establishments, and are sought out by users who don’t wish to harm the environment while enjoying a warm, attractive fire. In the United States, Green Heat fire logs enjoy distribution through Whole Foods stores in various regions of the country and in select retailers in the North East and South West. American Group partners with Zip Fires to ensure prompt, affordable delivery of their products to their customers who sell them.
Nature’s Grilling Products Nature’s Grilling Products manufacturers a full line of 100% natural grilling products including a variety of raw wood smoking products, lump charcoal, and a pure hardwood briquette that contains no chemicals, no fillers, no coal and absolutely no aftertaste. The company takes their environmental responsibility seriously, protecting fragile ecosystems where their source materials are harvested, using wood only from regions that meet their strict resource management guidelines. As a result of their conscientious approach, their product has the lowest carbon footprint of any grilling charcoal. American Group partners with Nature’s Grilling Products by assisting them in shipping their product to sellers across the United States and Canada.
In addition to their production of eco-friendly products, both Zip Fires and Nature’s Grilling Products are active participants in the Trees for the Future Project. Through their combined efforts and contributions, nearly 2 million trees have been planted in honor of their customers, a practice which results in reducing our global footprint by 53 million pounds annually.
Not only does American Group take a customized approach to getting each load on the road, once the shipment has been made, their agents follow it right to its destination. To guarantee a smooth process, American Group works hard to confirm all the details on the bill of lading including purchase order numbers, contact phone numbers for the recipient, addresses, etc. They have established relationships with 3rd party warehouses so they can be employed when needed. In addition, agents make sure that all pertinent information gets transferred to the carrier’s data system to ensure accurate, on-time delivery. Their job isn’t done until delivery confirmation has been received.
If your company produces an eco-friendly product that deserves the widest distribution possible, contact American Group today for a freight quote and receive 10% off your first invoice. They are eager to continue partnering with innovative and conscientious companies that are making a difference in the environment every day. American Group’s toll-free number is 866-553-6608.
