After a thorough operational review and supply chain data analysis, we develop a strategic carrier sourcing plan that ensures you have the carrier network in place that best fits your operational and service needs.
You can select carriers based on least-cost, best service, proven dependability and professional preference. You benefit from our preferred 3PL status as we drive a large pool of qualified carriers to the RFQ table.
When it comes to selecting between new and incumbent carriers, the choice is yours. We provide you access and expert recommendations while you make the decision that is best for your business.
Our carrier pricing teams are experts at conducting carrier Requests for Proposal on your behalf. True to our Co-managed Logistics® approach, it’s your call on which carriers participate and which carriers you use.
We analyze RFP results and make recommendations to you based on our findings and market knowledge. Should you decide to work with new service providers as a result of the RFP process, we’ll organize carrier meetings to help your team become acquainted with those new service providers.
And, our continuous improvement philosophy ensures ongoing competitive rates for each of your locations through continual contract negotiation and renewal.
Regardless of the outcome, the end in mind is for you to have a strong carrier network that ensures you meet the needs of your customers.
We take on all the heavy lifting to minimize your costs associated with carrier contract and rate administration, allowing your team to focus more effort on more revenue-generating activities.
We also understand the importance of contract protection and the issues of risk and liability.
Our carrier management teams make sure a master contract is in place with every carrier. This contract protects you against loss, damage and liability. Transparency, fairness and simplicity are what make our contracts unique. Our contracts are straightforward, so that rates, classes, rules and fuel charges are completely transparent to you and the carrier. All parties always know where they stand, improving the flow of business process.
