FedEx: THP/NTRA Vendor of the Month for October 2005

As a THP member, you can take advantage of NTRA Purchasing's preferred FedEx rates to keep your shipping costs down. FedEx offers the broadest array of transportation, e-commerce and supply chain solutions in the world. You may think of FedEx when you ship business packages, but the company offers many other services that you may not know about. Through your THP membership, you can take advantage of NTRA Purchasing’s preferred FedEx rates with one easy phone call.

Not only does FedEx offer preferred pricing to NTRA Purchasing members, it also gives back to the industry a percentage of what is spent by accounts linked to NTRA Purchasing. Thus, you can give something back to the racing industry every time you use a FedEx service.

It is important to note that even if you or your company has another discount plan through FedEx, you can still have your account linked to NTRA Purchasing and give back to the racing industry. FedEx will automatically give you whichever discount is greater while your account is linked to NTRA Purchasing, so you have nothing to lose.
