We are a team of truck dispatchers and logistics specialists who have the experience needed to keep drivers on the road and operations running. By constantly studying the market we book top paying loads and have contacts with America’s top freight brokers. We believe that excellent communication is the building block of a successful dispatching service and offer quality care to all of our clients.
For independent Owner Operators operating under their own authority we offer dispatch and other services to assist in putting your operation in the profit lane. You probably have discovered that most loads you may try to book will offer unattractive pay. Most well-paying loads do not last more than 1 or 2 minutes before being booked by another carrier. Based on our experience, we have to make countless phone calls and send multiple emails to the shippers and brokers before we can book solid-paying freight. In order to do that, constant monitoring of the freight market is required. We understand that driving and making 30-40 phone calls is a very difficult task. That is where we can help! We will let you know where the current hot lanes are and where we should focus our efforts on getting you to. We put our best effort forward to find you a load and negotiate the best possible rate for you. We shall book it and take care of any necessary paperwork (like carrier set up packages). This way you can concentrate on driving while we are taking care of your logistical needs.
If you are a brand new carrier who just received your MC Authority or have recently done so you may have already discovered many dispatch firms will only work with carriers who have been in business for at least 6 month or more. There is a logical explanation for this. There are a lot of brokers who will not take a chance by booking loads with a newly registered carrier and risking potential cargo loss or damage. Therefore they will prefer a carrier who managed to stay in business for some time and will present a lower risk. For a dispatch firm this translates into more work trying to find brokers who will work with a newly registered carrier.
Here at Logistics Etc we believe that everyone has to start somewhere! We have relationships with many brokers willing to work with new transportation companies and we are willing to service new carriers even so it may require additional effort on our part for the first 6 month or so. In return we get a fully “accredited” client who will continue doing business with us in a future! We will guide and assist you in a form of consulting.
