Getting started with Asahi
How often do you run RFPs?
RFPs typically run every fall or when there is a significant change in market or business needs. We assess our logistical network with the aim to improve on service level and cost either by simple additions or whole sale changes. We are always interested in partnering with businesses that can help us effectively meet our current needs and help achieve our vision of growth.
How do I get set up as a vendor? (click here...)
If your company profile matches our business philosophy and needs, we ask that you complete our online vendor qualification form. Our team evaluates all submissions and will reach out to your company as synergies are identified.
How does a delivery provider obtain or increase business in its service area?
Business is awarded based on several different criteria. While price is a large factor, we also look at on-time delivery percentages, customer service, damage rates, and tender acceptance percentages.
Delivering on our needs
Who can I contact in case of an emergency?
You can contact our Logistics Manager, Jason Fox, at 517-375-6696.
What sort of tracking do you require for shipments coming to and leaving from your facility?
We need to be notified of any exceptions or delays related to the shipment as soon as issues arise. We do not require live tracking of the freight while enroute.
Do you require logistics-type web tools such as ASNs, activity management reports, online claims filing, etc.?
While not mandatory, it is a preferred feature.
Are you looking for additional warehouse space?
We have strong presence in various regions, including the Midwest, Southeast, West Coast and Mexico. We are not looking to alter our current warehouse agreements at this time. As our business grows, we look for opportunities to expand our inventory storage at a low total cost model.

We ship plastic resin in two main packaging types. We ship Octabin (Gaylord) boxes and Supersacks of material. The dimensions and stackability is below.
