Got shipping problems?
When it comes to freight shipping, you can certainly run into many different problems. Whether you can’t find a truck or your cargo gets damaged in transit.
The possibilities are endless. And although we cannot control every single problem that may arise, we certainly can avoid them and try our best to fix them!
As a Freight Broker and Freight Management company, we have been in this business and industry for over 60 years. Which gives us the upper hand to avoid and fix most problems that may arise.
Here are some helpful tips and advice:
- You should always schedule your shipments at least two weeks in advance, if not a month ahead. So you have plenty of time to find capacity.
- It is also easier to find capacity, if you book your shipment within the middle of the month verses at the end of the month. Avoiding when everyone else is also trying to source capacity.
- If you have to schedule your shipment last minute or without much notice; using a broker is more beneficial. Here’s why: A broker has more flexibility when it comes to finding capacity. Since broker’s work with a variety of carriers, they have multiple sources to not only find a truck, but a trailer that will suit your cargo needs.
- Also using a broker, will give you the security of knowing that the carrier hauling your load is one of their preferred carriers. Meaning they know them, trust them and have worked with them for years. Which in the end, means less damaged cargo, less late pick ups and missed deliveries.
- Another benefit of using a broker is, if a problem does arise, our Freight Management Team is there to handle and fix the problem, before you even have to learn about it. Our team is dedicated to seeing that your shipment goes smoothly from pick up through delivery.
If you are experiencing any problems with your current freight supplier, we would be happy to chat about how we can start fixing those problems and avoiding them in the future.
