Reduce retail chargebacks and missed delivery window fees

Maximize Your Transportation Efficiency To Retail Stores and Distribution Centers

In the hustle and bustle world of retail, many large-scale vendors have instituted stringent delivery guidelines and drop-off date requirements. Failing to meet these demands can result in a variety of consequences for retail suppliers, including chargebacks and other fees. 

At Averitt, we understand the complex nature of Must Arrive By Dates (MABD), and have built a solid reputation as transportation leader in the retail market. To that point, our team of retail experts work with suppliers around the country on a daily basis to ensure that merchandise arrives at distribution centers and store locations on time, on target, intact.
