The Devastation of Hurricane Florence, and What You Can Do to Help

Here in North Texas, we know the power of a little rain. In fact, our overnight delivery couriers aren’t ashamed to say that we’ve often prayed for rain. After years of water restrictions and severe drought, we welcome any precipitation we can get to water our favorite Texas crops and fill our beautiful North Texas lakes and rivers. Unfortunately, the feeling is not mutual for our neighbors to the East. Understandably, they’re praying for the rain to stop. 

When Scheduled Deliveries in DFW Just Make Sense

If we had to be honest, there are a lot of things that just don’t make sense.

In short, when Fall hits, we’ll be ready. But if you’re looking at the word “equinox”, and thinking: overly priced health club, you wouldn’t be completely wrong, but you also wouldn’t be ready for the spectacle of the beginning of Fall, either. We’ll help you out.

We Put the “Cool” in Your Hot Shot Refrigerated Delivery

Ok, so there might not actually be the word “cool” in the phrase “hot shot refrigerated delivery”, but the point is, our couriers are cool, calm, and collected, no matter what type of delivery we hit them with.

 

That includes the hot shot refrigerated delivery that you called to schedule at 3 in the morning on the first day of Labor Day weekend.

 

See, even though hot shot deliveries have the word “hot” in them, because they are, after all, a hot topic for your organization and of the utmost importance, they require the opposite. They require a cool team to remain collected, steady, and able to move the most time sensitive goods at the very last minute, often completing delivery in 45 minutes or less. Do you have a courier that can put the “cool” in your hot shot refrigerated delivery?
