PrinterEssentials Signs Multi-Year Air & Ground Contract with FedEx in Memphis
PrinterEssentials, with its headquarters in Reno, Nevada announced that it has signed a multi-year shipping agreement with FedEx in Memphis after nearly seven months of negotiations with the carrier.
PrinterEssentials will now ship 100% of it’s orders from it’s Memphis Superhub Facility which is located only 2 miles from the FedEx Express World Air Hub and Sort Facility. PrinterEssentials opened this highly automated 30,000 square foot facility in March of this year.
According to PrinterEssentials President & CEO Bob Willmes, “When I decided to open our Eastern U.S. distribution facility I purposely chose Memphis for the location figuring that we would eventually be able to secure a strong shipping program with FedEx there, since Memphis is the carrier’s World Headquarters & Sort Hub. By having all of our distribution Memphis based, there is no flyback for any of the air packages, this provides us with a significant cost advantage that we will now take to market.”
Under our Fedex program we will now provide:
All U.S. customers Guaranteed FedEx 2 Day Delivery as standard for the same local ground rates as always including FREE FREIGHT for orders over $300!
Guaranteed Overnight Delivery for only $5 per order extra (up to 100 lbs).
In addition to these very low shipping charges we’ll now be able to utilize the latest order cut-off time in the industry, since orders placed by 11:00 pm Eastern Time (8:00 pm Pacific Time) now will be shipped that night.
Under this Fedex Program PrinterEssentials will ship nearly 1000 cartons nightly from its Memphis Superhub Facility beginning October 19.
