We Keep It Simple
Simple can be harder than complex: You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it’s worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains.Steve Jobs
Steve Jobs was a complicated and brilliant guy. If you’ve read much about him, you know he was passionate to the point of sometimes being unlikable, but whatever people think about him, he changed the way we communicate. You can’t go anywhere without seeing happy phone owners looking down at their brand new iPhones.
And what do people like about iPhones? Well, if you ask me, it’s easy to see in the iPhone, Jobs’ determination to strip things down. The iPhone is a simple design, isn’t it. It feels good in your hand.
So what does this have to do with your supply chain? Quite a lot. Jobs’ contention that “simple can be harder than complex,” is actually right on the money and it’s prevalent in the logistics industry. How often has someone tried to sell you on the next, best technology–that you don’t need? Here at AMT, we’ve been in the logistics business for 32 years and we’ve seen a lot of companies come on strong and burn out chasing the newest shiny thing. We prefer to perfect our processes and get down to the nitty gritty in order to make life simpler for the manufacturers, distributors, and carriers that we are lucky to work with each and every day.
And how do we keep it simple here at AM Transport?
We get to know you. You’re not just another manufacturer or distributor to the team here at AM Transport.
If you’re a manufacturer we want to know more about your specific cargo and your lanes and what is most important to you in a logistics partner. This is important because our main goal is to make sure your pickups and deliveries go off without a hitch. Need special equipment or warehousing–no problem, we’ve got you covered.
We answer our own phones. When you call us, you will NEVER get voicemail. You won’t get an answering service. You won’t be asked to punch your way through a phone tree to get to the right person. When you call AM Transport, you will get a real, live person 24/7/365 days a year.
We understand that your time is precious. You don’t have time for that nonsense, so we make it very simple to get in touch with us.
Because we’ve been in the transportation industry for 30 years, we know folks all along the supply chain. When you work with us, you’ll always experience the peace of mind that goes with knowing exactly what’s happening all the time.
Customer service can entail a lot. But we’ll keep it simple. When you trust us with your cargo, we’ll take care of everything. If it’s necessary, we’ve got it covered, from paperwork and invoices to tracking from pickup to delivery, we’ve got you covered.
Our relationship-building goes both ways. We work with the best carriers in the midwest. These are carriers you’ll never find on your own. They work with us because we provide them with excellent freight, super technology, quick pay, and superior communication they can’t find working with other brokers.
These small carriers are long-term businesses with the highest safety ratings, the best equipment, and seasoned and experienced drivers. You never have to worry about your freight when you work with these premier carriers.
Keepin’ it simple.
