The Challenge

Promising to provide highly accurate bulk materials handling solutions to its customers, Schenck Process needed its equipment transported for on-time delivery. With large and often uniquely-sized machines, the company wanted assurance that its shipments would arrive to their end users exactly as they left the dock.

Amanda notes that without a trusted logistics team, the company was putting itself at risk of losing its customer base. She endured several bad experiences with carriers coordinated by other logistics providers and was searching for a better solution.

The challenge and Schenck’s needs were three-fold:

  • Truckload and Specialized Freight
  • Reliable and trustworthy carriers
  • Personalized customer care and communication
