Arkansas Best Company (ABC) is a transportation logistics company. It was established in 1891 and currently operates throughout five countries: United States, Canada, Mexico, Argentina and China. ABC has more than 56 subsidiaries and employs over 8000 people to complete its services for its customers.
One of the many services offered by ABC is intermodal freight transport, which can be completed through land, air or sea. In the region where a product needs to be delivered to, there may not be easy access to either a ship or an airplane for delivery, but it does have good roadways leading up to the border with another country. Intermodal transport involves removing a product from one mode of transit and putting it onto another mode in order to help goods get to their destination more quickly and efficiently.
ABC also offers warehousing services, which involves the storage of goods until they are ready for distribution or shipment. It is important that companies store their products in a place where they will remain safe from weather elements like rain or snow. This service helps keep products dry and prevents them from getting damaged during transportation. Storage facilities can be public or private with either options having its own advantages based on what type of product needs to be stored, how long it needs to be kept, and how much space is needed by the company that owns it.
