Who We Serve

We are the supply chain solution for distributor customers, manufacturer partners, and national account operators. By handling less-than-truckload (LTL) deliveries, we help all parties address the unique challenges of their business. 

Customers:  We enhance our customers' lives one delivery at a time by reducing lead time, improving service level, and expanding the products available to their end-customer. Because we believe in transparency, distributors get the same negotiated promotions, growth programs, and special pricing through Dot that they would have received if buying directly from the manufacturer.

Manufacturers: Simply put, manufacturers who partner with us see more sales, reduce their operating costs, and improve service levels to their customers. We act as an extension of their business and navigate supply chain challenges on their behalf with ease.  

National Account Operators: Our redistribution model enhances multi-unit accounts' businesses as well. Whether they need to shop from a broader offering, assistance with a limited time offer (LTO), or improved standardization for all accounts, we are here to help our distributors support national account operators with their goals.
