RetailExchange, freightquote team up
January 1, 2001,
BOSTON -RetailExchange.com, a business-to-business exchange for excess consumer goods, has entered into a strategic alliance with freightquote.com, a provider of online business-to-business freight and logistics services, to integrate freightquote.com's logistics tools and shipping services into RetailExchange.com's excess goods marketplace.
Kenneth Frieze, president and ceo of RetailExchange-.com, said, "Adding freightquote.com is an important step in our plan to provide comprehensive transaction support services to our exchange members. The addition of transport services is especially beneficial for retailers and manufacturers that may not have established logistics networks."
RetailExchange.com's site includes a section for soft home goods, among others.
