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.

The savings are clear. For an average-sized store whose annual freight expense is $25,000, estimated savings are over $8000. For larger stores, annual savings are in the tens of thousands.

Under the program, retail members will receive substantial discounts with UPS Small Package freight on:

  • Income/outgoing freight
  • Third party dropships
  • Return freight

Third-Party Freight Manager

Parcel Management Group (PMG) analyzes your freight bills and provides guidance, sets up routing with your vendors, tracks your billing and acts as your personal customer service representative for all shipping concerns.

Deals on LTL

The program utilizes a pool of approximately 30 national and regional LTL carriers with highly-discounted rates.

Refund Recovery Audit Service

Capitalize on UPS’ money-back guaranteed transit times. If the shipment arrives late, PMG will secure a full-refund, saving you up to an additional 5% on your annual freight spend.

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.
