Americans love to shop. Every day people see new products — online, in-store, or in an advertisement — they don’t even realize they “need.” And they buy it. It’s a cycle that’s only been growing since the end of World War II. The retail industry is no longer about what we need but what we want. And well, people want a lot of things.
The retail industry, both brick-and-mortar and eCommerce, is an influential factor in our economy that is perpetually growing, having increased by 7.2% during the second quarter of 2022 compared to the second quarter of 2021. From year to year, US retail sales in 2021 increased by 17.9% compared to 2020, grossing $6.6 trillion.
All that to say, retail is an ever-growing industry.
The increase in retail sales, in turn, increases the need for retail distribution services provided by logistic companies that are actively expanding to cater to the needs of the growing industry.

Retail Pool Distribution Services
Retail pool distribution services provide you with the ability to ship a large amount of cargo to a specific region, where it will then be separated into local delivery trucks for distribution to the freight’s end destination — residential or commercial. This service lets you save big when shipping large amounts of products to one area. Consolidate your shipments on a retail pool distribution truck to save your company time and money.

At Service Express, our reliable courier services provide you and your customers with real-time trackability, scheduled services, optimized routes, and a friendly face at delivery.
Parcel Shipments to Commercial Locations
Sometimes, you’ll need to quickly restock your shelves, even if you can’t fill a full or LTL truckload. In this case, parcel shipments to commercial locations are a must. Our couriers will deliver any small, lightweight shipments you may need to your storefront via our courier cars, vans, box trucks, or 4WD vehicles.
