Learn which transportation solution is right for you

Some companies believe operating a private fleet gives them more control over their operating costs and a better customer experience. Other companies have found outsourcing to a dedicated fleet partner frees up precious capital and allows management to focus on building the core business rather than moving products and managing transportation complexities.

Get all the perks of a private fleet without the headache of managing one

Private Fleet

A private fleet affords you complete control but along with that control come direct and hidden costs. The cost of trucks, trailers, and transportation IT consumes capital that could be invested in other areas of your business. Rising operating and maintenance costs coupled with increasingly complex insurance and regulatory compliance requirements must be monitored and managed using human capital.


Dedicated Fleet

An outsourced dedicated fleet program delivers the benefits of a private fleet but without the daily challenges of managing one. Your dedicated fleet partner recruits, trains, and manages drivers, guarantees capacity to meet fluctuating demand, leverages technology to provide full visibility across your transportation network, and shares in the risk and liability of the fleet so you can focus on growing your core business.
