Use it or lose it. The name of the game in local transportation is “immediate gratification”. You usually pickup and deliver multiple times a day, and your pickups may be stretched out over the course of the 24 hours each day, night or day, rain or shine. Every time you make a pickup you provide the customer with immediate logistics gratification.
Riverside Logistics handles a vast amount of dedicated local movements in the central Virginia area (Richmond, Williamsburg, Ashland, Henrico, and Williamsburg markets). Headquartered near the Richmond International Airport, Riverside manages over 500 thousand square feet of warehouse space, Riverside doesn’t project a profile like your normal local shuttle operator. Riverside has been moving freight from warehouse to manufacturing, from manufacturing plants to warehouses, from warehouses to Ports (Richmond and Norfolk) and from Port(s) to warehouse. Riverside has moved product for locally based, nationally based and international customers for 20 years. They have a strong fleet of locally-based drivers that they utilize. Some of these drivers have been handling Riverside business for over 17 years. It is Riverside Logistics goal to demonstrate an unmatched level of commitment to its drivers and ultimately to its customers.
If your company needs freight to move within the Central Virginia market, either across the street or across the region, Riverside can move it, each and every day. Most shippers that Riverside does business with are repetitive, daily and/or weekly shippers, moving product within and across the Central Virginia marketplace. Local shippers are typically very demanding. They usually allow little room for error. They usually want extra services over and above the norm on an on-demand, as requested basis (ad hoc) and they also want the rates to be extremely competitive. That’s why Riverside has so much local Central Virginia business. We deliver and we use a repeatable process to make sure that we meet ALL of our shipper’s demands, consistently, every day.
