Signing a contract with a major retailer is the dream of many start-ups and/or established businesses. The goal of a retail partnership is to increase sales and exposure. There is one little hiccup that can make or break your first retail experience. For many companies that hiccup will be retail compliance. In short, retail compliance is a set of requirements that a vendor must follow to meet the standards of the retailer. The biggest headache usually comes in the form of a routing guide, which specifies the requirements for shipping to the retailer. It is prudent that your logistics provider has experience working with routing guides or you risk being punished with charge backs. Contact us today if you are seeking a third party logistics provider that has worked with major retailers. We are capable of shipping small parcel, pallet in/pallet out and we can also transmit orders via EDI.
