It’s understandable to feel that going with a national-scale shipping company ensures you have access to the most services and conveniences, but is it truly the most reliable? Not always!
Local trucking companies can offer special benefits and unparalleled customer service that the big boys just can’t compete with. We share these benefits below!
No one knows a region better than the locals living in it, and this is especially true when it comes to logistics. If you need loads shipped frequently, you don’t need the risk of delays that waste time and money.
Local trucking companies know the best routes to take to haul deliveries quickly, especially in lieu of heavy traffic or inclement weather. They also know where the most convenient gas stations and other service facilities are located to streamline the supply chain.
One of the biggest benefits of utilizing the services of a local trucking company is the personalized service they provide. You’re partnering with a small-scale team that will take the time to know your company and also know your name!
It’s a perk that goes a long way, because you feel like you’re working closely with an actual person (which you are!) instead of a cold automated system that treats you like another number.
When you opt for a local trucking company as opposed to a large-scale carrier, your business is pumping fuel back into the local economy. Instead of your hard earned money going towards a CEO’s new vacation home, it’s helping locals to pay bills, improve local infrastructure, and keep families afloat. It’s one of the best ways to give back to your community- and you can’t dispute the benefits of going local as well!
