Customized Service for Truckload or Less-Than-Truckload Quantities of ARLANXEO Materials

The relationship between ARLANXEO and RDAbbott is truly collaborative and focuses on how best to service our customers. RDAbbott offers tremendous ordering flexibility and operational versatility. ARLANXEO’s business model is extremely effective at servicing accounts requiring full truckload shipments. However, not all customers need their material at such high-volume levels. In some cases, they don’t have the warehouse space to inventory that much material or their applications don’t require that much product. In response to this need, RDAbbott has been able to intercede on these customers’ behalf by stocking their warehouses—strategically located throughout the United States—with full truckload quantities to service multiple customers requiring less-than-truckload quantity needs.
