    CAMEX 2013 & PartnerShip

    CAMEX is a staple in the collegiate retail industry, and has a long history of being the industry's meeting place. For more than 80 years, volunteers and staff of the National Association of College Stores (NACS) have worked together to create and grow this premier event for their members and industry. Today CAMEX is the industry's largest trade show and educational event attracting more than 1,100 attendees and more than 700 exhibitors.

    College Store AdPartnerShip, as in years past, will be exhibiting again at CAMEX 2013 as the NACS Shipping Program provider and the endorsed tradeshow shipping company. As we advertised in the November/December issue of The College Store Magazine (shown to the right), PartnerShip will be exhibiting in booth #2827 and we'll be serving up complimentary coffee and cookies to exhibitors and attendees as a way to say —thanks a latte' for the business. If you are planning on attending CAMEX 2013 be sure to stop by and say hello!

    Also, as a special promotion, PartnerShip will be giving one lucky college store a free registration to CAMEX 2013! PartnerShip launched this promotion on November 14, 2012 and has already received over 100 entries! Check back next month to see who ends up attending CAMEX on us.

  • 6 Reasons to Enroll in a PartnerShip Shipping Program

    11/15/2012 — Scott Frederick

    6 Reasons to EnrollOne the pillars of success for PartnerShip is that we work with major associations and trade groups to build, launch, manage, and support shipping programs as a valuable member benefit.

    Since we don't manufacture products and most of the services we provide are through strategic brand alliancesthe real value we bring to our customers is created when we develop a full-service program that uses our expertise to lower shipping costs, reduce administrative expenses, simplify processes, and ensure world-class transportation service for our customers. After all, most products and services can be purchased on a transactional basis ... but a full-service program requires a true partnership.

    When we promote our association shipping programs, we often cite a few simple reasons why it makes sense for members to enroll. Here are six of them:

    1. You save on your small package shipping, using select FedEx® services
    2. There's no cost to use the program — it is a FREE benefit
    3. When you enroll, you get access to a dedicated account representative as your single-point of contact for all of your questions and concerns
    4. Savings through the program could help you offset the cost of your association or trade group membership dues
    5. There are money saving options for ALL of your shipping needs, including inbound, outbound, small package or LTL freight … even your time-sensitive tradeshow shipments
    6. And best of all, our shipping program directly supports your association or trade group

    If you are interested to learn if PartnerShip has a shipping program in place for your association or trade group, click the button below and let us know. We'll go to work to see if we can create a full-service shipping program for you too!

  • A Charitable PartnerShip for Northeast Aid

    11/12/2012 — Scott Frederick

    Catholic Charities and Red Hook InitiativeLast week PartnerShip was able to help support the Catholic Charities Diocese of Cleveland and the Red Hook Initiative to get important Hurricane Sandy relief supplies from Ohio to New York.

    The shipment included canned goods, bottled water, flashlights, candles, paper towels, blankets, and coats. PartnerShip covered the full cost of the shipment and we coordinated the logistics, inlcuding the pickup at Our Lady of Angels School in Cleveland, OH and the delivery at the Red Hook Initiative in Brooklyn, NY.

    "PartnerShip being able to help OLA  made my month," said our contact at Catholic Charities Services in Parma, OH. "(My contact) at Our Lady of Angels just called. She was so excited and happy. She talked to someone from PartnerShip and they have arranged to pick up the donations this coming Monday at no cost. She wanted me to extend her thanks to you for the generous offer. She had called others looking for a solution with no results, and then called me (Catholic Charities). Very seldom am I able to give people who call me a solution to their numerous problems. Thank you so much for arranging this for them."

    The employees here at PartnerShip really enjoy the good work we do in helping our customers with high-quality, low-cost shipping solutions; but we also take great pride in giving back to the community from time-to-time when we can. After all, that is the nature of any true partnership.
