Distributor Offers Local Job Site Delivery

Author: Ari Erenthal, Published on Nov 30, 2016

Local distribution branches are a big differentiator for many integrators, as they facilitate quickly picking up supplies locally without having to wait for delivery from remote locations. 

One distributor has taken this a step further, buying their own fleet of vehicles to drive products direct to integrator's job sites. In this post, we examine the offering and look at its potential appeal.
