MACEDONIA, Ohio — Wheel distributor Blackburn OEM Wheel Solutions Inc. is expanding the scope of its one- and two-day free-shipping zones to help expedite delivery times for its range of OEM wheels, hubcaps and center caps to customers.
Macedonia-based Blackburn is expanding its Next Day, or one business day, shipping across the Midwest and Northeast to include all of Ohio and West Virginia as well as portions of Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, New York, Pennsylvania and Virginia.
Second day, or two business day, shipping now covers the West Coast, including all of California as well as western Nevada, Oregon and Washington.
Orders placed by 6:15 p.m. eastern standard time Monday through Friday will ship out the same day, the company said.
"Our fastest-growing customer segment is located on the West Coast, and we are making necessary changes to get our products to those customers faster while maintaining free shipping," Todd Deranek, vice president of sales and marketing, said.
"This improvement will make a large impact in major cities like San Diego, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Las Vegas, Reno, Portland and Seattle," he said.
In business since 1978, Blackburn calls itself the largest privately held distributor of OEM wheels, hubcaps and center caps in the U.S.
