My business has worked with many freight companies over the past 30 years, typically searching for the lowest possible cost in effort to secure the best pricing for my customers. I have learned that there are more factors than simply cost that make a difference for my customers being satisfied with doing business with my company. I have had many broken promises from various freight companies with missed shipped dates, damaged freight arriving to my customer’s locations and added charges that were not agreed to in advance. I started working with Upland Logistics recently and they have taken a lot of time understanding the needs of my business and explaining to me the options available from Upland Logistics. In addition to the 10-30% cost savings that I have experienced, they have been able to meet the needs of my customer that often have very tight windows of times when they must have the deliveries to fit into construction schedules for their projects. Upland has access to their own asset-based trucks as well as contracts with other carriers that provide several options to meet the varied needs of my customers. They are very committed to doing the best job possible and providing a level of service that I have not seen from any other companies in the freight business. I will be using them for all our freight needs in the future.
