What's New at Holland

Exceeding seasonal trends with confidence!

Truck and tulipstestimonial

 

 

 

 

 

On a par with our success in the second half of 2009, our business levels at Holland continue to increase and exceed normal seasonal patterns this spring!

In this struggling economy, our customers know every shipment is vital to their business. They also know Holland delivers the confidence and value they need in this recession. How?

One way is our next-day service. Holland has more next-day lanes—by a wide margin—than any other provider in the region.

We can help you stay nimble, letting you quickly respond when business opportunities emerge. And because we work hard to make deliveries early in the day, your customers have your shipment in time to use in their businesses.

Another way Holland helps customers succeed during this recession is delivering reliability on every shipment. Holland surpasses industry benchmarks by a wide margin with overall on-time performance at 96.9 percent and 99.8 percent damage-free service.

That means you can count on your shipments reaching their destination on time and intact.

Our customers see the difference we make in their business and frequently tell us stories of Holland employees who go the distance to deliver value.

Find out for yourself. Visit hollandregional.com or call 1-866-465-5263 for your next shipment.

He went on to say that, "Failing to address growing congestion problems will cause costs to rise, translating into higher consumer prices and slower job growth . . ."
