Direct Truck shipment
YES, you can get on our nutritional program even if you’re a distance from us.
We have some great freight rates for our customers who are too far away and cannot pickup feed or be serviced by our delivery trucks. Our trucks service most of Indiana, and large parts of Ohio, Illinois, Michigan, and Iowa. For those out of our service area (whose order cannot go UPS), we have secured discounted freight rates by Trucking Companies for Common Carrier Shipment. The rates for Common Carrier (LTL) shipments are quite a bit less than shipping bags of feed by UPS. We have had several occasions where a customer wanted to order just Topline & Show Pro, thinking they couldn’t afford UPS shipping on Show Feed. We were able to ship them 50 bags of product for less money than the UPS bill would have been on just the few bags of Show Feed Additives.

EXAMPLE 1: With our Common Carrier Freight Companies we have service to several Midwestern States and we have contracts for flat rates on pallets. This rate is for up to 2500 lbs; = 50 bags of feed on one pallet. This is a flat rate per pallet, you do not have to take 50 bags. However the rate is the same from 1 to 50 bags– so take advantage of the ‘pallet rate. These rates are about $1.50 to $2.00 per bag. Compare this cost of single bags going UPS at $20.00 to $40.00 per bag.

EXAMPLE 3: UPS and UPS Hundred-weight Program works well for those feed orders of 4-5 bags or less. Our ‘on-line’ UPS rate program automatically calculates these rates. Somewhere around the 4 to 5 bag feed order it is less expensive to ship Common Carrier, because of their flat dollar rate per pallet.
