|FedEx: THP/NTRA Vendor of the Month for
As a THP member, you can take advantage of NTRA Purchasing's preferred
FedEx rates to keep your shipping costs down. FedEx offers the broadest
array of transportation, e-commerce and supply chain solutions in the
world. You may think of FedEx when you ship business packages, but the
company offers many other services that you may not know about. Through
your THP membership, you can take advantage of NTRA Purchasing’s
preferred FedEx rates with one easy phone call.
Not only does FedEx offer preferred pricing to NTRA Purchasing members,
it also gives back to the industry a percentage of what is spent by accounts
linked to NTRA Purchasing. Thus, you can give something back to the racing
industry every time you use a FedEx service.
It is important to note that even if you or your company has another
discount plan through FedEx, you can still have your account linked to
NTRA Purchasing and give back to the racing industry. FedEx will automatically
give you whichever discount is greater while your account is linked to
NTRA Purchasing, so you have nothing to lose.
NTRA Purchasing’s preferred FedEx rates are discounted as much
as 16%. See the chart below for more details:
