Customer Background

A tube and pipe manufacturer in North Carolina designs and fabricates large 24-foot, stainless steel tubes. They run on strict production and delivery schedules to meet their customers’ project deadlines.

The Need

After incurring an additional $3,000 charge per load from their previous shipping company for the length of their tubes, this manufacturer followed through on a referral to ship with the R&R Family of Companies. 

Not only were their shipments with their prior shipping company getting too expensive, but they also weren’t getting them to their destinations on time. Ultimately they needed a more reliable shipping partner that they could build a relationship with.

The Solution

As two companies who both value reliability and performance, the R&R Family of Companies is the ideal “one stop shop” for this steel tube manufacturer. We provide the company a combination of full truckload (FTL) and less-than-truckload (LTL) services in both flatbeds and dry vans. Whenever and whatever the need, the R&R Family of Companies is able to accommodate their loads without the additional costs.

Trust is at the root of all we do at the R&R Family of Companies. When our customer comes to us to quote a load, they trust that we will give them a fair price without unexpected charges and that we will deliver their freight on time and free of damage.

The Results

Our manufacturing customer has been tracking savings on shipping costs and has been excited to report great progress in getting the company’s shipping costs down. 


“I’ve been jotting it down. We’ve saved $6,000 since April! That’s significant progress toward our goal of lowering shipping costs.”
