Echo aligns RAD and MABD requirements to ensure improved service and on-time performance

We measure success with results. Echo’s acquisition of Roadtex grants us the capability to provide our clients with a premier retail consolidation program. Our retail consolidation program leverages our strong relationship with the largest retailers, excellent service record, and strategically placed temperature-controlled warehouses to ensure retailers’ most stringent delivery requirements are met, minimizing on time, in full (OTIF) penalties.

How does retail consolidation work?

Having to fill other partial loads can cause delays due to multi-stop deliveries, as well as potential challenges from additional handling. With Echo’s retail consolidation program, multiple suppliers that ship to the same big box retailer are consolidated into the same load, resulting in less handling and more direct shipping which lowers the risk of damaged goods and associated costs.
