The CEOs of Two LTL Carriers Share How Shippers Can Work with them Best
May 1, 2019
Let’s face it: if you want to build healthy and productive relationships with your carriers, it helps to listen and pay attention to what they are saying.
When shippers ask us questions about conducting sourcing events—especially for their LTL transportation needs—we emphasize the need to understand market conditions and how LTL carriers are responding to them.
We've reached into our TranzAct network to give you access to the CEOs of two major LTL carriers so that you can be in the best position when it comes to obtaining LTL services.
In this interview, Rob Estes, CEO of Estes Express, and Darren Hawkins, CEO of YRC Worldwide, do a great job in highlighting some very important factors that will affect your LTL rates and freight costs.
Just a few examples of what you will hear:
- Rob speak to exactly what role data plays in an LTL carrier’s pricing dynamic
- Darren emphasize how transparent communication and true partnership results in consistent and accurate pricing
- Rob explains the fallacy of prepayment as a value-add for shippers
