Managed Freight Solutions

What are managed freight services?
Managed freight is a service in which a shipper or manufacturer works with a logistics team that manages the full spectrum of a company’s day-to-day shipping needs in order to streamline the supply chain.
Logistics managers help customers save time and reduce costs. They boost productivity and provide increased visibility of both shipments and data while offering superior service levels and the consistent capacity customers need.
Do you need a managed freight team?
If you’re managing your shipping needs in-house without a full-time person dedicated to the task, you are probably overworked and overwhelmed. Finding insured, reliable carriers, staying on top of current rates and negotiating with a variety of providers, as well as, keeping track of your freight and finding it when it’s not been delivered as promised is exhausting. And certainly, it’s not the best use of your valuable time.
