Consumers who make a direct purchase from you will expect door-to-door delivery within a few days, or even overnight. This means that if you can go over and above and offer a same-day delivery, you have a competitive advantage. But how do you offer this service and fulfil it consistently? That’s where working with a freight management company like EFS, makes all the difference.

Our unique approach to freight management allows us to partner you with agile, local delivery providers who are aligned with your business goals and get the job done – every time.
