    What’s the cheapest way of getting our products from A to B?

    Hello.

    Definition of a, Macmillan Online Dictionary: Free American English Dictionary and Thesaurus
    from A to B
    from one place to another
    What’s the cheapest way of getting our products from A to B?


    Can I say "from point A to point B" instead of from A to B?

    Can I use "moving" in place of getting?

    Thank you.

    Yes, and yes.

    However, "getting" is probably more common. Yes, I'd say it is. Using "moving" instead of "getting" sounds stronger.

    We've gotta move these pallets outta here by the end of the week or we aren't gonna make the quota for the month.

    What's the quickest way to move these boxes from NY to Guatemala?

    You could overnight əm, but that's gonna cost yə big time.

    Is "from point A to point B" more common than "from A to B"?

    I don't think so, but it's hard to say. Using "point A to point B" sounds stronger. You might hear it in the speaker's tone of voice - possibly, but not necessarily.
