Load Fast. Load with Confidence.

Submitted by Gary Salisbury, CEO on March 8, 2012 at 01:54pm

In 2009, we launched FTL Logistics, a sister company that expands our capacity, handling your loads from coast-to-coast on any type of trailer. Since then, we’ve refined our Agent Program, aligned ourselves with qualified Carrier Partners, and integrated technologies that make our response times quicker.

We just launched FTL Connect, our proprietary web-based dispatch system. Through FTL Connect, agents can:

  • Post loads once, and have them auto-post to major load boards;
  • View nearby trucks based on up-to-the-minute feeds from the load boards; and
  • Immediately assess carrier qualification based on real-time data, including:
    • Safe Stats the FMCSA;
    • Insurance coverage via a monitoring service; and
    • Previous experience with FTL and Fikes.

“We are the first brokerage to establish a real-time connection with the load boards,” says Willis Johnson, Director of FTL Logistics, “It’s part of our ongoing commitment to build capacity for our customers.”
