FedEx® Freight now offers two sizes of standard boxes for less-than-truckload (LTL) shipments.  Ms. Jennifer Marcum, Sentry’s Chief Executive Officer, recognizes the ease of use a flat-rate box option by saying, “The larger pallet box (48” x 40” X 38”) is ideal for small businesses needs as it simplifies the negotiation and shipping of freight under 1,200 pounds within the continental United States.  By removing the National Motor Freight Classification® (NMFC®) from the equation, FedEx® is further standardizing a shipment’s transportability while ensuring cargo is adequately protected to withstand the normal variabilities of the LTL environment.  The added FedEx® brand security and quality reputation appeals to Sentry’s tailored small business model and can satisfy our pharmaceutical clients with a stable formulation in an effective container closure system at ambient conditions.”

“Sentry BioPharma Services ships to all eight of the FedEx® Freight Zones,” adds Mr. Dwayne Marcum.  He continues, “The pallet service is also ideal for transporting marketing supplies to/from pharmaceutical and biotechnology industry conferences like BIO 2017 which will be hosted in San Diego, California.  For example, to ship one pallet of marketing materials from Indianapolis, Indiana to San Diego, California using the FedEx Priority Solution results will cost a flat $248.00 one way.  The online tool makes it easy to know the rate and expected delivery time for a Zone 7 shipment.  Because FedEx® Freight has a solid reputation for on-time delivery and the logistics are transparent, this makes our strategic planning and budgeting much easier.”
