NAC

NAC members can learn from this story by planning ahead for their critical event-based shipping needs. Since most members are not transportation experts, finding the right partner with the expertise and resources to plan and execute time-critical and time-sensitive shipments is a great place start. The NAC Shipping Program from PartnerShip is an endorsed member benefit.
