Addison County Chamber and GTS Partner to Offer New Member Discount ProgramBy Sue Hoxie
Middlebury, Vermont – October 29, 2012 – The Addison County Chamber of Commerce (ACCOC) has announced to its members a partnership with Group Transportation Services (GTS) that offers a transportation management program. The program enables members to save time and money on a range of shipping and receiving services.
According to Chamber President Andy Mayer, “Small- and medium-sized companies typically aren’t able to have a shipping specialist on their staffs, so we are excited to make GTS’ expertise available to them. No matter what you’re having delivered to you or what you’re sending out, it would be smart to see what they can do for you. Between their knowledge and network (including companies in our region whenever possible) they are likely to save you a significant amount of money.”
GTS specializes in outsourced transportation management services, offering door-to-door service on all types of shipping. Members save on less-than-truckload, truckload, air freight, international and overnight deliveries. Whether ACCOC members are looking for full-service management of all their shipments, guaranteed carrier discounts or something in between, they will save time and money by using the GTS transportation solution program. To demonstrate its saving potential, GTS offers a free initial analysis to any ACCOC member. The results of the analysis identify tangible and intangible savings to potential clients.
“We are very proud of our partnership with ACCOC, and we expect to provide exceptional value and savings to its membership,” said Curt Gonya, vice president of sales at GTS.
GTS provides client coverage 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Clients can call a toll-free number, 800-689-6255, to obtain quotes, place orders and track shipments. Orders may be placed via phone, fax, or email.
