From planning to delivery, businesses are looking for reliable shipping solutions. Since 2010 there has been a decrease of more than 45,000 freight carriers in the United States. That is more than 10% of our nation’s trucking companies have shut down. The reasons are numerous, fuel prices, lack of drivers, new regulations, and the list goes on. Finding a quality carrier and building that relationship is becoming harder and harder for American business.
The national truck driver shortage is not a rumor, it is reality. According to the American Trucking Association there are currently more than 25,000 unfilled truck driver positions in America. With few drivers and fewer companies truckload capacity is in fact tightening. More and more shippers are building relationships directly with truckload carriers. Partnering with an experienced asset carrier can be the key to a business’ success. Small and large businesses are finding that dealing directly with a carrier can prevent their cargo getting lost in the shuffle on the desk of a broker or in the paperwork of a large 3rd Party Logistics (3PL) organization.
Focused on your Freight
The industry continues to see more and more carriers attempting to specialize in multiple services. Business can find peace of mind with a dedicated truckload carrier.

Working directly with your carriers eliminates a frustrating layer of communication.
