    Getting the Most Out of Your Freight Broker: Part 2

    - by Transplace

    Part 2 of our 3-part series on how to get the most out of your freight broker has us focused on building a strategic brokerage partnership. Shippers utilizing freight brokerage services for their transportation have two very basic considerations: desirable price point and reliable, on-time delivery. But when it comes to choosing a brokerage partner, what more should you really be looking for? Price and dependability may be fairly straightforward but they don’t exclude the importance of partnering with your freight broker to strategize on how to better meet your core objectives. A closer, more strategic partnership with a brokerage provider is the key to success for shippers who want to consistently achieve reduced cost and a high level of performance.

    Getting the Most Out of Your Freight Broker: Part 1

    - by Transplace

    Our first of 3 posts on how to get more out of your freight broker has us asking: How do you know when you’ve found the right freight broker? Getting a deal on price is always a good thing, but there’s more to shipping than just price — you need to find a carrier that understands your specific business priorities and needs.  Rather than just negotiating the terms of a transaction between you and the carrier, a good broker will partner with you to learn exactly how your business works, then deliver fast and efficient service solutions that match your specific needs.

    Our CEO, Tom Sanderson, recently spoke to Supply Chain Brain about the factors driving railroad intermodal growth.  More freight is now moving from truck to intermodal, and the market is rapidly growing because of that conversion.  According to Tom, driving this trend are three particular needs of manufacturers and retailers:

    Building Safer Supply Chains as a C-TPAT Member

    - by Transplace

    Understanding supply chain risks and establishing security approaches is critical in today’s global market.  Another significant step companies can take to protect their supply chains is to become a member of the Customs Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT) program.  Organizations that are C-TPAT members fully cooperate with U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), as C-TPAT was designed to build relationships that strengthen international supply chains and U.S. border security.  It works to safeguard the world’s trade industry while also maintaining the economic health of its members.
