Well we just got back from this year’s Surf Expo 2011 in Orlando Florida and what a great show! Although we were already starting to work our way into the Surf and especially SUP markets this was the first time we had actually attended the show. Attending the show and speaking with all the SUP and surf board industry owners just re-verified what a competitive advantage we bring to this market with our very robust and 15 location, warehouse, order fulfillment, and freight and small parcel distribution network/ Supply Chain system.
This is market that is traditionally plagued by high costs, high damages, and inefficient shipping and distribution costs across the board due to their large cumbersome products. By brain storming new ways of using our vast warehouse and distribution capacity we have helped SUP and surf board related companies warehouse and fulfill order closer to their end customers, greatly reduce damages associated with long shipping distances, reduce shipping related lead times to 1-2 days , and reduce overall LTL Freight/ shipping cost by 25-50% in most cases.
If you are in the Stand up Paddle board or surfboard related business you owe it to yourselves to at least have a conversation with us and see what we can do for you and your company. If nothing else you will have another good, economical option for how you can get your products to market competitively in any market in the continental USA or Canada.
Aside from the Usually freight shipping and distribution related business and making new friends at the expo, we had a chance to see some great new game changing products, see Tony Hawk and some other veterans of the Bones Brigade days tear up the Quicksilver half pipe. It also didn’t hurt that Oneill and Lost really know how to throw a party and say thanks to there buyers and suppliers!
If you are in the surf related products company, from Stand Up Paddle boards, to surf boards, to skateboards, to swim wear and surf apparel we have distribution solutions for you. From distributed warehousing, to picking and packing of small time consuming and repetitive items like bikinis and swim wear, Frontline Distribution not only has a first in class supply chain solution for you, but we would be stoked to work with you and your merchandise! This truly is the best of both worlds, getting a great cost effective and efficient service from a company whom is truly excited about your industry and surf/ beach related products.
Please let me know if you have any upcoming LTL freight, supply chain or distribution related requirements you would like us to price out!
Hope to talk to you soon, and I hope it’s a great year!
