Picture of computer, hands, calculator, and spread sheets with title: Do You Really Want the Lowest Rate?

You’re not still rate shopping, are you?

Are you taking care of your logistics needs in-house?

We’ve heard it before. You want to work directly with trucking companies because they have the trucks. Here at AM Transport, we know you think of freight brokers as the dreaded middle man

Here’s what you might not know–sourcing carriers, booking loads, and making sure your freight is picked up and delivered on-time is not as easy as it used to be. In fact, logistics gets more complicated, more expensive, and more time-consuming every day. Advanced technology along with new regulations and worries about dropped loads, service failures, and unhappy customers has the average shipper running on empty.

Rate shopping is probably costing you money.

If you’ve been chasing the lowest rate, it’s probably costing you money. Think about it–how many times has that low rate been busted because you had to rebook the load at the last minute–at a premium rate? It happens all the time. And that makes it really difficult to predict your freight spend.

Outsourcing your logistics will save you time and money. 

Back to the middle man–the freight broker. Let me tell you a little bit about AM Transport Services. We’ve been in the transportation industry for 33 years and counting. During those 33 years, we’ve provided exceptional freight services for manufacturers and distributors in the midwest and all over the United States.

And we believe that as a true middle man–we are bridging the gap between manufacturers and the premium carriers they deserve to be working with.

We’re not your average broker because we know how important long-lasting relationships are. That’s why we really get to know everyone in the shipper/carrier equation. 

We ask lots of questions in order to learn about your lanes and your network, and then we match you with premium service-oriented carriers. These carriers aren’t your average carriers either. They have long business histories, excellent experienced drivers, and the highest safety ratings and on-time percentages.

Add to that our excellent team, cross-trained in all aspects of the logistics business. Sure, you’ll have a single point of contact, but the truth is anyone in our small office in southern Illinois can help you–day or night. You see, we answer our own phones. You’ll never get an answering service or have to punch your way up an automated phone tree.

We’re good at what we do. So good, you’ll barely realize we’re there, working behind the scene, scheduling appointments and tracking your freight from pickup to delivery. We provide updates and you’ll have access to our online portal where you can receive reports, data, and load information. And you can quit worrying about paperwork. We’ve got it covered.

Don’t take our word for it.

You’re not saving money when you shop for the lowest rate. Over time, you’re spending more money than you would working with the team at AMT. But you don’t have to take our word for it. Just check out our Google and DAT reviews. Then give us a call with your toughest load, and we’ll show you how it’s done.
