Discount Freight Program

RIA’s premier retailer member benefit - a program that will provide an average of 35% savings on annual freight costs, which translates into higher profits for your store.

We saw significant savings right away! Our accounts payable manager actually thought there was something wrong with an invoice because the freight was so low.
