When shippers are looking for a carrier to handle their LTL shipment, it is because they don’t have a large enough load to make a full truckload but a load so large that shipping it through a commercial shipper would be too expensive. That’s when they turn to a good freight agent or brokerage for fast, Johnny-on-the-spot LTL shipment management.
3PLs Taking Over LTL Shipment Industry
Over the last few years, 3PLs have started taking over the bulk of the LTL shipment industry’s increase in demand. Internet technology and global commerce have combined to create a lucrative new avenue for income for 3PLs and freight agents.
Before this takeover, we had already been using technology to give our agents an edge at GlobalTranz. We recognized as the internet become more commercialized and as retail business began migrating to the internet, the need for LTL shipment services would be needed.
Competing for LTL Shipment Supremacy
Now every 3PL and freight brokerage is trying to gain grain for LTL shipment supremacy in this new faster logistics market. For our customers, competing is made a lot easier. Our CarrierRate2.0 proprietary software allows for fast and easy shipment booking for enhanced customer service.
Our CommandCenter is a central organizing software tool that gives you live, real-time reporting and data to better manage your LTL shipment requests. And our ShipperCenter offers an expansive network of shippers that you can prospect for new business and to build up your individual network.
