Most companies when assessing freight expenditures do not allow for the Operational time an employee spends trying to source carriers or better rates. We all know in this business that if you deal with a carrier only and there is a service failure – possibly due to low rates – your freight is at risk of not moving. Having a Freight Forwarder like i-Load Direct on your side helps to alleviate these potential issues.
Keep in mind your “core” business is not transportation but manufacturing and/or selling goods to you’re clients – wherever they are. Having a reputable Freight Forwarding company that also ships Internationally as an essential part of your distribution team reduces your overall costs by allowing those that specialize in freight shipments as their “core” business take care of this for you.
Operationally it does not make sense to spend $200.00 to save $100.00 on a freight shipment. The biggest mistake companies make is not taking this into account when they assess their transportation costs. Besides saving money overall you have a committed team member like i-Load Direct who is just a call away – it’s a comfortable feeling to have; as the “value added” is the additional security and expertise you have in your corner – setting you apart from your competition.
