Pool Distribution at a Glance

Pool Distribution is the distribution of product to numerous destination points (stores) within a particular geographic region. Characteristics include high frequency regular shipments in LTL quantities, typically in the 150 to 2,000 pound per shipment range. Pool distribution represents a superior and cost effective alternative to the high cost of LTL shipments. Instead of LTL direct, product is shipped to regional terminals in truckload quantities. There it is off loaded, sorted and segregated by store and then reloaded on local delivery trucks for delivery to pool destinations. Pool Distribution reduces transit times, maintains shipment integrity, and allows a significant discount over LTL rates.
