According to Forbes, “We are experiencing a market with low truck supply and high freight demand.” This “capacity crunch” makes it more important than ever to choose the right carrier for your shipment. One of the decisions you face is whether to hire a large, national carrier or a regional carrier. We believe that bigger isn’t necessarily better in the trucking industry.
How does working with a regional carrier like Berger Transport compare to working with one of the national trucking giants?
First, regional carriers work in geographic regions that are well known to them. This allows them to deliver loads faster with a higher level of accuracy. We have the ability to pick up and deliver contents on a fast timeline within our direct service area of Wisconsin, Minnesota, Illinois, and Ohio.
Second, regional carriers offer personalized service. At Berger Transport, you know us and we know you which results in a higher level of customer care. We treat customers, drivers, and employees like family in order to operate at the highest level.
Third, regional carriers don’t need to support a massive infrastructure which means that their services cost less. In addition to on time delivery of undamaged goods, you want to get the best possible price. This is especially important with last minute loads, which are usually charged a premium by large national carriers. We use the latest in logistics technology to ensure your costs are low and your returns are high.
If your reputation depends on a shipment getting from point A to point B by a certain time and in perfect condition, you know you can rely on a regional carrier like Berger Transport to get the job done without breaking the bank.
