Warren, Michigan, August 10, 2005 - Central Transport announced today the expansion of the already successful Pallet Saver 05 program. With the new addition of Floridas Pallet Saver program, Central Transport is now able to offer significant transportation cost savings when these customers ship multiple allets daily.
The programs primary benefits to the customer are very attractive short haul and long haul pallet rates on both intrastate and interstate Florida lanes. The rates are implemented through a simplified pricing structure and easy sign-up, eliminating the need for complex auditing. Central Transport also offers a pallet saver incentive to customers so that the more they ship the greater their savings will be. If shippers present 25 pallets per week or 100 pallets per month, they can save even more with an additional 10% discount taken off their freight bill. An aggregate pallet provision, where multiple shipments are going to different locations, also adds to even greater savings for the customer.
Nationwide in scope, the program has a very extensive coverage area that includes most major metro markets in Central Transports service area. Over 96% of all US zips are now covered by the Pallet Saver rates. At this time there are six origin regions, with more regions planned to be added as the program expands. The origin states currently included in the program are CT, DE, FL, MA, MD, NH, NJ, NY, PA, RI, VA and VT.
