[Podcast] Should You Use a Single Freight Brokerage to Handle Your Project Freight?

 

Meeting the aggressive deadlines associated with project freight shipping takes a high level of oversight, comprehensive planning and a reliable mix of transportation options — a fact that’s not lost on you. 

No one, yourself included, wants their project to be thrown off track due to a lack of options and an inability to find timely, cost-effective transportation solutions. 

So, it’s understandable that you would look to mitigate this risk and expand your reach by working with as many providers as you think it’ll take to get the job done. 

But, contrary to what you might believe, this won’t actually be your best route forward. Let’s talk about why. 

In this episode of Beyond The Road we will speak to a transportation-industry professional who will explain the advantages of working with a single, well-vetted freight brokerage for project shipments and how using multiple may actually hurt your supply chain in the end.

  • What is a Freight Shipping "Project?"
  • What needs must be met for these shipments
