Why local freight is perfect for you

Local freight is perfect for you if you want to offer same day, point to point delivery services for your customers. Same day delivery is a great option for you particularly if you are wanting to increase the speed of your deliveries.

Consumers who make a direct purchase from you will expect door-to-door delivery within a few days, or even overnight. This means that if you can go over and above and offer a same-day delivery, you have a competitive advantage. But how do you offer this service and fulfil it consistently? That’s where working with a freight management company like EFS, makes all the difference.

Our unique approach to freight management allows us to partner you with agile, local delivery providers who are aligned with your business goals and get the job done – every time. Offering local freight services also means your freight spends less time in depots which ensure less chance of breakages or product going missing.

Studies also show that the number one reason for cart abandonment is shipping rates that are too high or delivery times that are too long.
