Four Benefits of Working with a Freight Broker

Managed Freight Services for Manufacturers and Distributors Who Want to Save Time and Money

The COVID-19 pandemic continues to affect supply chains all over the world. Here in the US, the trucking industry has hit its stride, and many industry experts believe this historically strong trucking market will continue throughout 2021 and into 2022.

If you have freight to move, now is a great time to consider managed freight services. You’ve probably read about and been approached by larger 3PLs about their managed freight offerings but still aren’t sure managed freight is right for your company. That’s why we’ve compiled a list of just a few of the benefits you can reasonably expect with managed freight services.

What is managed freight?  

Simply put, managed freight is a service in which a manufacturer or distributor like you works with a freight broker like AM Transport who manages the full spectrum of your day-to-day shipping needs. In short, we streamline your processes and help you save time and money. 

And when freight rates are skyrocketing, it’s a great time to explore the benefits of managed freight services.

4 Good Reasons to Explore Managed Freight Services.

  1. Now more than ever, you need safe, on-time, reliable, and affordable delivery of your products. You don’t have time for late deliveries or missed appointments. The transportation landscape has changed dramatically during the last year, and we can be sure some of these changes are here to stay. The best way to negotiate constant change is managed freight.
  1. If the pandemic opened your eyes to the difficulties of sourcing carriers, you’re not alone. Chief among these difficulties is the liabilities you’re exposed to when your carrier vetting process is subpar. Working with an experienced freight broker with a long history and a wide carrier base can provide you with the peace of mind you deserve.
  1. It’s no secret that the freight market is always unpredictable, but the last year has highlighted this unpredictability. Freight brokers like AM Transport have the tools and technology to offer you insight into the future and to help you make decisions in the best interest of your company.
  1. Finally, if this year has taught us anything, it’s that reacting is a waste of our time. You do not have time to keep reacting to supply chain issues.
