When you need regular, dedicated deliveries to out of area locations, Penske Logistics’ shared dedicated transportation solutions provides a consistent and cost-effective alternative 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 levels providing unattended, overnight deliveries
- Fast, next-day delivery service
- Consistent, reliable delivery times
- Returns handling for containers or packaging
- Minimal handling and reduced damage
- Efficient delivery to less dense geographic areas
- Reduced carbon footprint
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. Shared transportation is especially efficient at serving outlying destinations with less delivery density - reducing cost and improving delivery times versus less-than-truckload shipments.
Reduced Carbon Footprint
Optimizing deliveries with shared dedicated transportation also benefits the environment:
- Reduce miles
- Reduce fuel costs
- Run fewer, fuller trucks
