A Good Freight Broker Can Change Your Life
3PL, Freight Broker, outsourced logistics
Does that sound funny? How can a good freight broker can change your life? After all, there are over 17,000 freight brokers operating in the United States. That’s a lot of brokers to choose from, right. And unfortunately, freight brokers or 3PLs aren’t always as great as the promises they make. If you’re like most manufacturers in the midwest, you’ve probably worked with a bad broker once or twice. Lots can go wrong (late, dropped, damaged loads) if your logistics partner isn’t up to par.
That said, a good freight broker or 3PL really can make a huge difference in your day-to-day life and in the bottom line for your company.
Think about it.
How much time do you spend calling carriers, collecting quotes or updates or chasing down trucks with important shipments? How many times have you had to call an important customer with bad news about a dropped load? How much time do you spend shuffling paper and paying invoices? How much money are you spending on premium rates after a load has been given back to you at the last minute?
You could be doing something much more valuable for your company.
When you work with an experienced freight broker like AM Transport Services (we’ve been in business for over 33 years), you get the full-power of our career logisticians. Cross-trained in all aspects of the transportation business, they’re committed to saving you time and money.
This means, you won’t be scrambling after low, low rates (rate-shopping is a race to the bottom). You’ll always know exactly where your freight is from pickup to delivery and so will the customers who depend on you. You’ll have access to the best technology and data to help you make informed decisions about your logistics operations.
When you work with the experts at AMT:
You have access to the best small carriers. These are small to midsize companies with long-term business histories and drivers with excellent driving histories. Their equipment is top-notch, and because of this, they only haul for the best manufacturers in the midwest.
In addition, you’ll always know where your freight is. Here at AMT, we track your freight from before pickup to after delivery. And we provide updates day and night.
You have a single point of contact, but because we’re small and flexible, anyone in our office located in Southern Illinois can help you. This redundancy means you’re always taken care of.
