The success of the trucking industry, like many other industries, depends on the relationships between carriers and shippers. Reliable carrier-shipper relationships are essential for the smooth operation of the trucking industry, making these relationships a priority for the companies that are looking to grow in this field.
As one such company, we always prioritize and aim to maintain strong relationships through open communication and transparency with all of our clients, partners and prospects. We don’t need brokerage or middleman, we enjoy building direct and personal relationships with our shippers and work dedicated lanes 90% of the time.
The Importance of a Personal Partnership
A carrier that has a strong personal relationship with a shipper is more likely to have a better understanding of the shipper’s needs and be able to anticipate and adapt to changes in demand.
For example, if a shipper has a sudden increase in orders, personal carrier-shipper relationships allow the carrier to quickly and efficiently adjust their fleet and routes to meet the increased demand.
This helps to prevent delays, which can be costly for both the carrier and the shipper. Additionally, a personal relationship allows for more efficient communication, which can help to prevent issues such as miscommunication about pick-up and delivery times.
Making Shipper Relationships a Priority
Our dedicated teams of experienced logistics professionals communicate with shippers 24/7 to understand their specific needs, such as delivery time frames, special handling requirements, and any other unique requests.
