Oftentimes, when you’re shipping goods, the focus lies on getting goods from point A to point B as quickly as possible. As you likely know, many freight trucking companies only take responsibility for the movement of freight, with no added services or support.
In actuality, transportation services can benefit from a few extra bells and whistles to make for a smooth shipping experience.
What is a White Glove Service?
White glove service meaning: a white glove service is an increasingly known term in the logistics and transportation industry. So what does white glove service mean?
Usually the term “white glove service” refers to professionals wearing white gloves that provide a high level of service, like a sommelier or chauffeur, but there’s more to white glove services than a literal pair of white gloves.
White glove services refer to premium delivery services with extra care and attention to details that many typical providers do not or cannot offer —services which are above and beyond getting goods from point A to point B. Often, white glove services are utilized in shipping fragile items, or for add-on packing or delivery needs.
In addition to simple inside deliveries, Ground Force Logistics provides these premium white glove services to our clients—services which are much more than just trucking and a loading dock delivery!
Here are four key benefits to taking advantage of our white glove services:
