Winter is (finally) coming to an end across the country and the
busy construction season is now upon us. Making sure you and your business have
the high-quality materials you need, when you need them (particularly throughout
this demanding time) is—as always—our number one priority. As has been highly
publicized, current market conditions are being affected by the combination of
recent legislation and resulting tariffs, raw material import limitations and
increasing freight costs resulting from a decline in available drivers. Despite
this, we are optimistic about our ability to deliver product to our customers.
Our strong domestic relationships, knowledge of the trucking industry and
industry buying power keep us in an advantaged position that allows us to
protect our inventory so we can deliver on our commitments to you.
We know your business and customers can’t afford to wait for
material. Our online ordering tool continues to be effective
in reducing the time and effort needed to find pricing, create quotes and place
orders for ABC materials. The efficiency and simplicity of the tool’s built-in
processes and features significantly lowers the chance of errors and
communication lapses—delivering a better overall experience for you from start
to finish. To see the tool in action, watch
and/or contact your local sales representative to schedule a
demonstration for you and your team. If you don’t already have an ABC Online
Ordering account, click here to register!!
In my last update, I invited you to meet with members of our
leadership team to give us feedback on how we can improve to better help you
succeed. Many of you participated and have provided us with very helpful
information. Thank you! We’re using your comments to organize action teams that
address improvement areas and standardize the processes that work well for your
businesses. If you are interested in participating in future in-person panels,
please reach out to your local representative for more details.
We value our partnership with to you and are ready to help your
businesses succeed. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me or your local representative with any needs or ideas you
have at any time. We’d love to hear from you!
