To our valued retail partner,
Happy holiday season to you; we hope that sales are strong and business is booming. With just one month left in 2018, GTS Distribution is turning its sights towards the coming year ahead. One of the unfortunate realities of a business that relies heavily on small parcel shipping is that freight costs continue to go up year over year. With the rise of e-commerce affecting the overall economic landscape, parcel carriers have more packages shipping than ever before and the price to ship continues to increase. At GTS, we understand that your business operates on tight margins and we do everything we can to minimize the impact of these costs. With Fedex announcing a 4.9% increase in shipping rates and a UPS rate increase pending, we need to make some slight modifications to our shipping structure starting January 1st, 2019. For GTS to continue to be the partner that you count on, we have made the changes below to our freight policy:
GTS Distribution Shipping Policy:
**COD and residential fees cannot be waived
**Only ground shipments to the contiguous states to commercial addresses are eligible for free shipping.
**Select items will not be eligible for free shipping, contact your sales representative for more details
**Items not eligible for free shipping will primarily consist of voluminous and/or heavy items and all toys.
**Certain other restrictions may apply, contact your sales representative for more details
**Expedited Freight cannot be waived
**No coast to coast orders will ship free freight
We understand that these changes impact your business. Day in and day out, GTS Distribution works to provide you with the best service, selection and pricing to support the growth of your business and community. Here are some of the things we are doing to provide more value that comes from working with us.
GTS continues to strive to be the preferred distributor in the sports, games, collectible and entertainment industry, and we look forward to serving you through 2019 and beyond. Thank you for your continued support and have a profitable and joyous end to 2018.
