Great news! Your business has just received an order for a substantial amount of your most high-profile products. The not-so-great news is that the customer wants them delivered to their warehouse, halfway across the country, in three days. For your company to meet the client’s needs, you may require upwards of 40 individual LTL (Less Than Truckload) shipments. Start doing the math, and you’ll find that the cost and time demanded from your business are nearly as substantial as the order you received!
What if it were possible to cut that number down to only six or seven shipments? We’re here to tell you that not only is it possible, but with Beitler Logistics Services, it may be less complex and more affordable than you would have ever imagined. If you’re eager to learn more about how Beitler’s full trucking services can save your company tons of time and cost, read on!
Full Trucking Services, Full Speed Ahead
You may have already figured out where we are heading, but efficiency is the name of the game when it comes to selecting full trucking services for your most crucial freight. In addition, you’ll usually pay quite a bit less per mile because you’re transporting an entire trailer from one location to another – a trailer capable of hauling up to 80,000 pounds of freight at a time!
We all know that nearly every product used or consumed is transported from one place to another at one time or another – perhaps even multiple times! As a result, full trucking services play a vital role in our economy because it allows for the efficient transportation of large-volume shipments that might not be practical or cost-effective to transport with any competing method.
Selecting Full Trucking Services? Know This:
Now that you’re aware of some of the benefits that full trucking services can bring to your business, we turn our attention to selecting the right partner. Unfortunately, choosing an inexperienced or inattentive full trucking services provider can hinder your overall shipping processes and reduce the savings that attracted you in the first place. Below are three points to keep in mind while weighing your options to make sure that you’re choosing a full trucking services provider that can deliver to your satisfaction:
- Choose a partner with lots of experience consolidating and optimizing loads. Proper load consolidation and optimization practices protect your products and maximize the available space to the fullest. Particularly in the world of full truckload shipments, space equals money.
- Pick a partner that puts correct emphasis on routing considerations. Computer-assisted route planning can avoid costly re-routing and time-consuming delays. Avoiding delays makes your shipments even more efficient by reducing or eliminating wasted time and resources.
- Know where your products are at all times by going with full trucking services that offer 24-hour shipment tracking. It’s not just for peace of mind. Satellite-based load tracking will verify that your products are where they are supposed to be so that you can plan your business’s next move.
