A new way to keep track of your truck freight

You have hired truck freight and shipping services from a company that assures you that your freight is well on its way and will be delivered on time. You ask if they are sure. They assure you they are. You want to believe them, but life has taught you that what people are saying and what is actually happening can often be two very different things. If only there was a way of tracking your shipment more effectively than by making a phone call and reciting a tracking number to an employee who has been instructed to tell you that your shipment is “Well on its way and will be arriving on time” – when it could actually be lying scattered across some highway between here and nowhere. No, when you say: “tracking your shipment”, you mean seriously tracking your shipment – much like a spy would track something or someone. You want to look at your computer screen and by click your mouse and know exactly where your freight is. Well, believe it or not, this is actually possible if you hire a company like National Quality Logistics to take care of all your shipping needs.

Classify your freight correctly by doing it through an expert

When it comes to LTL shipping and other freight services, having your freight classified is important – or so you’ve heard. But why exactly is it so important and what does it entail?

Well, a classification number is generally assigned to identify every LTL freight shipment. This number first and foremost identifies the nature of the product that needs to be transported. By knowing the type of product they’re handling, the company you have hired to transport it will know exactly how your freight needs to be handled, packed and shipped. In other words, it identifies the freight class your products fall into. This will also tell them if the product is fragile or if it needs to be stored in an air-controlled unit. These are the type of things that need to be considered to ensure that your shipment is handled correctly by your freight services provider and arrives intact. The classification number will also tell you what price category your shipment falls into.

In order to find the right classification number for your freight, you have to know what your product’s commodity type is and the exact dimensions of your shipment – namely weight, height, width and length. When it comes to certain products, like building materials, this is easy – but what if you want to have something delivered that does not fall into the general categories of LTL shipping? How do you classify your product then? What if your freight gets the wrong classification number and is damaged because of it? This could be a costly mistake.

If you want to avoid making these types of mistakes, why not hire an experienced logistics company like National Quality Logistics to classify your products for you? Not only will they ensure that your freight receives the right classification number, but they will also take care of any other freight services that you require. So, don’t risk getting it wrong – rather contact a company that knows all the inns and outs of LTL shipping.

If LTL shipping is giving you nightmares, hire experienced hands

Rest assured, you are not alone – LTL shipping has caused many sleepless nights for all types of business owners. Hiring a company that is new on the shipping scene may have seemed like a good idea at the time because they were cheap, but now you are lying awake, staring at the ceiling and being haunted by questions like: Did I hire the right carrier? Is my truck freight safe? Will it arrive on time and intact? What if there is a breakdown? What if the handlers loading and unloading my freight are careless? What if…?

You don’t need this kind of stress. You need to focus your energy on all the other aspects of running your business. You can’t afford to worry about deliveries on top of everything else and you shouldn’t have to. What you need is an experienced logistics company that knows everything there is to know about LTL shipping.

By hiring an experienced service provider, you’ll be able to rest easy with the knowledge that delivery deadlines will be met and that your product will reach your clients in perfect condition. Here are the reasons why:

  1. Well-trained handlers will be loading and unloading your freight.
  2. The right type of vehicle will be used to transport your freight and only properly licensed and reliable drivers will do the driving.
  3. A professional mechanic will be on 24-hour standby in case of a breakdown and if the problem can’t be fixed in time a backup vehicle will be sent.

These are guarantees that can only be delivered by an experienced logistics company that knows how important reliable LTL shipping is. The new kids on the block that you hire on your own are likely to make a lot of promises that they don’t have the capacity or experience to keep, will be unable to take unforeseen circumstances into account and then make a lot of excuses when something goes wrong.

So, for the sake of a good night’s rest and general peace of mind, rather hire an experienced logistics company like National Quality Logistics that knows all about LTL shipping. For more information, contact us today.

For fragile goods, you need professional logistics services

It is no secret that fragile goods need to be handled and transported with care and that is where companies who provide professional logistics services come in handy. Not only will the people who will be handling your goods know exactly what they are doing but you can also rest assured that your goods will be transported in the right type of vehicle. Surprisingly, having your fragile goods transported by a professional logistics service also works out much cheaper than doing it yourself.

Let’s say you’re in the business of selling products that are temperature sensitive and need to be transported to different parts of the country. If you wanted to do this yourself and not through a logistics services provider, what would you need? Well, first off, you will have to buy climate-controlled air-ride vans or trucks, which can cost more than you might think. Then you will have to make sure that they stay in perfect working condition by having them regularly serviced, which further adds to your list of unnecessary expenses. You will also have to hire drivers, ensure that they are properly licensed to handle the vehicles and provide the specialized training so that they know how to handle the goods properly. Sounds like a lot of money and work, doesn’t it?

Apart from taking care of all these issues for you, logistics services providers can also organize the proper, specialized temporary storage space for emergency situations where your fragile goods cannot be transported immediately. On the other hand, if you do need storage space regularly, they can help you with that too. They can even take care of all your inventory management needs, so that you don’t have to hire/build a warehouse or hire a warehouse manager and additional staff for general management and stocktaking.

So, why not rather hire a company that provides logistics services for all your goods that need special handling? It’s the best and cheapest way to go. Contact NQ Logistics today for further information.
