Countrywide launches direct container program

Posted on April 1, 2014

Countrywide Tire & Rubber has launched a direct container program called “Link.” The distribution program’s features include online order tracking and receiving date scheduling.

The Link program is bringing an exciting change to Countrywide’s existing business model, according to Countrywide President Chad Isaacs. “We’ve mastered warehouse distribution, and intend to bring the same level of performance to our new direct service,” he says.

The program is currently being offered for Countrywide’s ST radial trailer tires, says Vice President of Operations Eric Johnson. “This new distribution process is allowing us to offer the best pricing we ever have on ST radials.”

Countrywide plans to apply the Link distribution model to their other product lines.

The Link program provides an order tracking system that allows the buyer to know the status of their shipment from the time it leaves the factory up until it arrives at its destination. The buyer will also have the ability to schedule receiving dates based upon their unique needs. 

The Link program also features Countrywide’s Container Builder tool. This order form makes ordering incredibly simple by adjusting automatically to show when the container has been filled. No additional guesswork or formulas are required.

The Link program will offer the same high quality products and services that customers have learned expect from Countrywide through this new distribution process. Countrywide is accepting orders beginning April, 1 2014.

Established in 1976, Countrywide Tire & Rubber is an international wholesale distributor of specialty tires, inner tubes, wheels and other related products. For more information, visit www.countrywidetire.com.
