WASHINGTON - The Snack Food Association (SFA), in partnership with the Food Marketing Institute, has joined FoodFleetXchange, an online buying service for fleet-related equipment, parts, and services.
Under the FoodFleetXchange program, member companies of FMI and SFA -- in partnership with AmeriQuest Transportation and Logistics Resources -- are eligible for special pricing and rebates on a variety of products and supplies, including retread and new tires, truck bodies, transmissions, motor oil and lubricants, maintenance parts, fuel cards, filters, and lift gates.
"AmeriQuest makes the FoodFleetXchange exclusive deals possible by aggregating the buying power of our customers, enabling us to negotiate some of the best pricing in the industry," said Doug Clark, president of AmeriQuest, in a statement. When combined with the rebates offered by the program, he said, the savings become "very, very significant."
FMI president and c.e.o. Tim Hammonds said he is confident that the FoodFleetXchange program will continue to grow. " FMI members have seen great success with this program, and we expect it to become increasingly valuable as more and more companies utilize it as a resource."
FoodFleetXchange's electronic business platform enables users to streamline their transportation and logistics operations, as well as reduce administrative costs, reformat invoices for easy review and approval, and organize branch and division activities into concise reports.
The FoodFleetXchange program also offers an online information service, InfoXchange, which provides users with the latest transportation news and peer product reviews, helping users identify potential problems and simplify the selection of new equipment.
