I used to work with a pallet rack supplier for LTL freights.
That is when you don’t have a lot of product to fill a full trailer, then it is a small shipment.
In the grand scheme of pallet racking, ocean cargo, air freights, and rail freight, I am small potatoes. I still am a corporation owner and a reliable client. I utilized the repair year around. I was consistently looking to expand, increase efficiency, and storage in my facility. The freight broker I worked with was exhausting though. I never got anything logistic wise from them. I was in the dark about everything, my product sometimes would ship late or arrive way too early. It just seemed to be a loose operation to me. So I left them and started hunting for another supplier that handles the transport of pallet racking. Ideally, I wanted a supplier that pairs with a logistic supplier to get me some information. That is how I found the corporation that I am at. This supplier does all sorts of pallet rack transformation. They also are a GlobalTranz partner which means I get access to all sorts of data that is geared towards making this function better and for cheaper. This current supplier is leaps and bounds better. I absolutely get to talk to a real lady on the phone when I have concerns. I get usable data and solutions for my problems. Things ship out on time and arrive when they are supposed to. I don’t feel like an inferior client since I only required LTL freights.
