Logistics Services - The
Power of Choice
Transportation can be like a
Rubik’s Cube: there are all kinds of permutations and combinations that a
logistics manager must evaluate to optimize that delicate tradeoff between
cost efficiency and service effectiveness.
Just as there is no single
way to solve a Rubik’s Cube, no single carrier will always be the optimal
choice for every shipment every time.
To deal with the change and
uncertainty you face, you need flexibility, responsiveness, versatility
and options. You need freedom of choice for your product movements.
As a non-asset
transportation services provider, Transport Link offers you the ultimate
freedom of choice. TLC was formed as an alternative to the “captive
customer” arrangements incurred by being contractually limited to
asset-based carriers that limit your flexibility and options.
Think about it: being locked
in to a single carrier or asset-based provider means being at the mercy of
their people, facilities and equipment. That’s fine assuming there is a
“perfect” carrier out there. Nobody bats a 1000, though. What happens if
you experience problems or dissatisfaction? Nothing … because you’re
obligated to that carrier.
As for those “one stop
shopping” and “single source carrier” claims from the huge carriers? Sure,
you might be dealing with a single carrier … but you’re also dealing with
thousands of people and facilities whose service performance can vary
wildly from one office and terminal to the next.
Transport Link, however,
offers you the ultimate in options. We have the national range and reach
to get your shipment anywhere in the U.S. We have a portfolio of carriers
to select from for optimizing each shipment. We have access to an
inventory of fleet equipment that ensures you will have the right kind of
quality equipment for shipping your product and meeting your specs.
