When you need regular, dedicated deliveries to out of area locations, shared transportation provides a consistent and cost-effective solution to less-than-truckload (LTL), parcel or expedited shipments.
Dedicated, multi-client delivery networks improve service levels and cost efficiency by leveraging customer synergies within geographical areas to share truckload space. It's like carpooling for your freight.
Shared networks afford customers the ability to combine freight loads from multiple shippers in one truckload, with the added benefits of:
- High service level with next day delivery
- Consistent, reliable delivery times
- Returns handling for containers or packaging
- Minimal handling and reduced damage
Shared Costs, Quality Service
Because shared transportation networks combine multiple shipments, shippers also share the cost without sacrificing service. You will pay for only the freight volume and distance traveled. Service is improved and shipment accuracy is ensured with advanced scanning systems to prevent co-mingling.
Optimizing deliveries with shared services also benefits the environment:
- Reduce miles
- Reduce fuel costs
- Run fewer, fuller trucks
