Outsource Logistics: You’ll Save Money and Time
3 minute read
Why do manufacturers and distributors outsource logistics?
- Shippers outsource logistics when they need their freight picked up and delivered on time without damages.
- Their freight budget is out-of-control, and they don’t have the necessary data or know-how to fix this.
- Service failures are costing them customer respect and much-needed business.
- A lack of visibility in their supply chain forces them to spend valuable time chasing down loads while hindering their ability to make cost-efficient decisions.
- Sourcing good carriers exposes them to excessive liabilities.
- Inconsistent, unreliable service and a lack of communication from providers impedes their ability to focus on growing their business.
When you outsource logistics to a reliable and experienced 3PL like AM Transport Services, you receive consistent reliable truckload freight services according to your shipment requirements. You work with qualified carriers, your appointments are made, your shipments are tracked, and you and your customers are notified when freight delivers. In addition a good 3PL team will pay the carrier and invoice customers. Transportation technology provides an integrated system and streamlines communication while offering full visibility.
