You don’t need luck; you need a great 3PL.
“I’m a greater believer in luck, and I find the harder I work the more I have of it.”Coleman Cox
If you google Coleman Cox, you’ll find a bunch of great quotes. But if you want to know more about the guy it’s a little difficult. Apparently, he was a businessman with a great sense of humor and witty way with words. Writing in the 1920s, Cox dispensed wisdom on life, business, and sales in short booklets he wrote, printed, and gave away. His little book of wisdom sold over a million copies, and then he wrote and printed another. It’s a great story, isn’t it. And it perfectly illustrates his contention that “luck” isn’t actually “luck,” but rather the product of hard work.
Don’t you hate it when you hear someone downplay someone else’s success when they say, “Oh, they were just lucky.” It’s a pet peeve of the team at AM Transport because we’re out here every day taking the necessary risks and doing the hard work to make sure our customers and carriers enjoy success. In our experience, the “luckiest” folks are those working the hardest, identifying and preparing for opportunities, and seizing them when they arise.
Take the transportation industry for instance. As a 3PL (third party logistics) provider, the main value the team at AM Transport brings to the manufacturers and distributors we work with is consistent truck capacity. This requires us to meet a variety of needs like short lead times, the necessity of drop trailers, dedicated trucks, job site deliveries, specialized equipment, and expedited deliveries. Do you think we’re just sitting back, waiting for good luck to strike?
Do we post loads (like many of our competitors) and hope we get lucky?
Again, no way.
We’ve been in the transportation business for 32 years, and during those 32 years, we’ve built a strong foundation that ensures customer and carrier success.
What does this strong foundation look like?
This foundation includes the long-term relationships we’ve built with the best small to midsized carriers in the midwest. These carriers have excellent safety ratings, low driver turnover, and superior equipment.
This foundation also includes our team. The folks at AM Transport are industry leaders who talk to carriers daily in order to learn their needs and find out where we can help. We use this information to better understand our carriers and our networks. It enables us to decipher where trucks are and what kind of freight they like to haul, and the level of service they can provide.
This foundation we’ve built includes a reputation we’re proud of.
