Is your business looking to ship items, yet keep your costs low? The correct solution to this is contracted trucking. Surprisingly, many companies do not know this option is available. They continue to pay freight costs, which go up and down on a whim and are nearly impossible to budget for. Make today the last day you fall victim to this!
What is Contracted Trucking?
A contract rate is a rate quote issued to a shipper that is to be held static for a period of time, usually one year. This means you will know exactly what you are paying for your shipping needs and there won’t be any surprises. It isn’t just about money though. For those shippers with sensitive freight needs requiring higher levels of service, performance and loyalty are very important. A “cheapest wins” carrier relationship is usually not one that promotes loyalty from you, nor yields a good-quality performance from them.
