• A Holiday Gift from PartnerShip

    12/18/2012 — Scott Frederick

    During this 2012 holiday season, we at PartnerShip continue our tradition of sharing our good fortune where it can benefit the less fortunate among us. In lieu of expensive customer gifts (other than our complimentary 2013 calendars), and as we have done in years past, we have made generous donations to five charities located near our corporate office in Cleveland, OH. Each, we feel, is worthy of our support because of the good they do in our community.

    PartnerShip Charities 2012The organizations receiving these contributions are:

    • Debra: (The Dystrophic Epidermolysis Bullosa Research Association of America) is committed to finding a cure for EB, while responding to the increased need to provide direct services to patients and their families.

    • American Cancer Society Hope Lodge: is a unique home away from home for people (and their families) who need temporary, comfortable, supportive accommodations offered free of charge during cancer treatments.

    • Ronald McDonald House: the family room is a brief respite for families to use while remaining merely steps away from their child's bedside; making it a bit of home within the walls of a hospital.

    • Emily's Hopeful Holiday: Emily is a 12 year old girl who was diagnosed with  Leukemia in 2007, now a cancer survivor, with her family she created EHH to raise funds to help other families at Rainbow Babies & Children's Hospital dealing with childhood cancer.

    • Ames Family Hospice House: this 32-bed hospice care center offers comfort care for seriously ill people and their loved ones in peaceful, comfortable surroundings. This facility is newly built and was built with patients and their families in mind with private suites and porches enhancing the home-like feeling.

    PartnerShip has a long history of generously giving back to the community, through individual fund-raising events and yearly participation in our local United Way drive. Each of the selected charities has touched our employees' hearts in a personal way and holds special meaning to our company. We hope that you agree that these donations will have a great and beneficial impact - after all, these donations would not be possible without the loyalty and support of our customers.

    Thank you and happy holidays!

  • Take the Stress Out of Shipping this Holiday Season!

    12/11/2012 — Matt Nagel

    Shipping can be tricky - selecting what service to use, choosing the most cost-effective method, and timing delivery and pick-ups correctly can all add up to a major headache. Now add in the extra pressures of the holiday season and your headache becomes even more severe. Not to worry, PartnerShip is here, as always, to help get you through the tough holiday shipping season with some quick tips and hints.  PartnerShip
    • This may be an obvious suggestion, but be sure to check carrier closure dates. It's a good idea to look at these sooner rather than later to plan ahead and make sure your shipment arrives when promised for that important customer or even that gift your shipping to friends or family. The carrier websites will usually display their holiday closures. You may have to do a little searching this early, but closer to the holidays the closures are usually front and center on the carrier's home page. Every year PartnerShip puts together a quick reference of our core carrier closures as well. Click here to view the calendar.
    • Choose the correct line of service for your packages. Choosing the correct service is imperative to keep costs down and get your shipment to it's destination in a timely manner. If you're shipping a small, non-palletized shipment (usually under 200 lbs) you have a couple of decisions to make. FedEx Express offers solutions for shipments that need to be at their destination quickly, while FedEx Ground and Home Delivery offer the more cost effective alternatives for less time-critical shipping. PartnerShip offers highly discounted solutions for all of these services through our association shipping programs so your business is saving as much as possible. With FedEx having its busiest day ever on 12/10, it's good to have someone in your corner like PartnerShip to help navigate your shipments through this busy time.
    • Linking up with a 3rd party is a good idea for small businesses. 3rd party shippers, like PartnerShip, help by taking the stress away from you for small package shipments as well as any big shipments (over 200 lbs.) you may have this holiday season. Less-than-truckload (LTL) freight shipments are a specialty of PartnerShip. We work with only the most reputable carriers to ensure your palletized or big shipment is delivered in the most cost effective way. PartnerShip also takes care of the red tape, paperwork, and pick-ups/dropoffs around LTL freight shipping to ensure you are focused on YOUR business. Add in a service like tradeshow shipping to any conferences or tradeshows your company may exhibit at and you have a true partner for this and future holiday seasons!
