09 Jan Logistics as a Service: It’s Who You Trust
Do you read Seth Godin’s blog?
In Monday’s blog, Seth writes about photography; in particular, about photographs of people and how those photographs lie.
Let me give you an example. You see an advertisement with a beautiful young girl, someone who resembles your daughter. She is enjoying a fizzy water, and she’s recommending that fizzy water to you. You like her. In fact, you have a natural affinity for young women who remind you of your funny, smart, beautiful daughter. Makes sense. Except that girl in the ad, that smiling face, she doesn’t exist. She is an algorithm, created with you (or others like you) in mind.
What does this have to do with Logistics as a Service?
Seth writes, “There are people and organizations that are racing to break the fabric of community that we all depend on.”
He’s talking about trust. We all know that trust is a problem in the logistics community, right? That’s why the team at AM Transport Services has spent the past 30 years building relationships with manufacturers, distributors, and the carriers we work with. In addition to building trust, we’ve studied and invested in technology. We’ve adapted to the changing landscape, all the while continuing to provide top notch customer service.
Our Logistics as a Service offering is intended to help customers bridge the gap as change in our industry accelerates. Trust is an essential component, and as Seth Godin points out, it’s going to become more and more difficult to know who you can trust.
Logistics as a Service addresses this issue with complete transparency, and it consists of two unique and necessary components–innovative customized technology and superior logistics consulting. The team at AMT is in it for the long haul. To put it more simply, we know what we’re doing.
Our adaptable, scalable Transportation Management System (TMS) is cloud based for security, flexibility, and accessibility.
Our TMS is designed to help you create powerful, move-the-needle reports because you can’t manage what you can’t measure.
Our APIs (application programming interface) are characterized by their free availability to developers automatically extending the shelf life of the TMS.
We offer complete supply chain visibility because our system is agile enough to provide end-to-end visibility based on your requirements!
Technology is only as good as the experienced professionals who use it. Here at AMT, we work as fee-only advisors, and this means clients pay us a fixed rate for expert advice independent of recommended products. We are morally obligated to work in your best interest.
We have 30 years experience working with manufacturers and distributors of all sizes. We provide a variety of offerings from fractional engagements where we act as a vital member of your leadership team to managed freight services where we manage the full spectrum of a company’s day-to-day supply chain needs.
You can’t have good service without excellent communication, and communication is just another area where we excel. Give us a call and you’ll find out that after 30 years, we still don’t have a voicemail. We know that when you reach out to us, you need to talk to a person. You don’t have time to wait for an email or make your way through an irritating phone tree. When you call us, someone in our office located in Olney, Illinois will answer the phone and make sure you get the information you need.
Things are changing, and so are we. But one thing hasn’t changed at AM Transport Services, and that’s our commitment to be the best we can be for our customers and carriers.
