Technological advances are supposed to make our lives easier. But today, there’s so much digital noise. It seems as if information is coming at us from every direction and every device. Even refrigerators now can tell you when the milk is about to expire.

In business, you must find a way to separate the meat of the matter from the gravy. A shipper can have a whole lot of pots simmering at the same time. Technology can help make sure nothing burns. Optimizing that technology with a trusted transportation management provider can be the recipe for success.

The Challenges of Self-Managed Freight Logistics

Shippers need to focus on their secret sauce, what sets their product apart from all the others on retailers’ shelves. Finding carriers, determining rates, tracking freight, invoicing, and collecting payment distracts shippers from the meat of their business. Think of a high-tech, full-service freight brokerage like a butcher shop, one that can cut the fat and deliver a Grade A product.

Of course, optimal freight management is much more difficult than hacking off a gnarly bone. Expert freight management, as provided by A.N. Webber Logistics, includes:

  • Shipment price-lock guarantee, transparent pricing with no surprises.
  • Responsible carrier vetting, a 21-point checklist that safeguards customers’ freight with top-tier carriers.
  • Comprehensive shipping solutions with options ranging from short-haul to LTL to oversized.
  • High-level communication that keeps shippers informed with clear, timely updates on every shipment.
  • Real-time visibility so shippers are never in the dark as to the location of their freight.
  • Experienced guidance from a team with decades of experience moving freight.
  • Personalized attention guarantees high-level support through every stage of every load.

The Strategic Advantage of Freight Brokers in Optimization

The freight brokerage industry is forecast to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 8.35% between 2024 and 2029, according to Mordor Intelligence. A freight broker’s optimization of technology – separating the meat from the fat, let’s say – can set it apart from all the other players in the field. Both the freight brokerage and the shipper can grow their businesses exponentially through that optimization.

A top-notch freight brokerage, like A.N. Webber, offers clients:

  • Deep market knowledge and network access. A.N. Webber has been providing logistics services for most of the 21st century and its technology has advanced with the times. Its extensive carrier network contributes to optimized logistics solutions for its customers.
  • Tailored solutions for specialized needs. A true logistics partner, like A.N. Webber, must meet shippers’ every need, whether that’s shipping by dry van, flatbed, or less-than-truckload; whether that freight is temperature-controlled or expedited; and whether additional services like warehousing and distribution are required.
  • Streamlined operations and reduced costs. A technologically advanced freight broker, like A.N. Webber, can utilize its optimized freight management solutions to streamline shippers’ operations and thus cut the cost of getting their products to the end customers.
  • Reliability and efficiency. A lost or late load can end a relationship between a shipper and a freight broker. A dependable freight broker, like A.N. Webber, has an arsenal of tech tools to ensure shipments are delivered where and when they’re supposed to.
