The 3 Benefits Of Asset-Based Transportation
- Jun 27, 2018
Your business relies on products arriving on time with a cost-effective transportation strategy. When looking for a transportation company to move your freight, you need to evaluate the effectiveness and experience of a company along with the price. Your brand and reputation are on the line, so you don’t want to entrust your business to just any low-cost provider.
The first thing you should always consider is whether to follow asset-based or non-asset based logistics. These two types of providers can impact your timeline and business. Here are three reasons to select an asset-based transportation provider.
#1: Build A Relationship
Asset based service providers have the tools your business will use to transport goods already in place — everything from trucks to docks for loading and unloading freight. This means you’re only dealing with one company that you can build a trusted relationship with. Additionally, you can rely on that relationship to get your items where they need to go. You’re not just a number in the queue.

All of our employees are experienced industry professionals who are on call at any point in your experience with Combined Express. Our dedicated staff will take the time to learn your industry and devise the best, most cost efficient shipping solution for your unique freight.
#2: Cost Effectiveness
Since asset-based logistics providers usually have their own trucks and docks (and ideally have built long-term partnerships through years of industry experience), they don’t need to waste time negotiating to get the job done. This enables them to pass on savings to customers. They aren’t the “Middleman,” as with non-asset providers who don’t own their equipment but rather hire with other contractors. So there’s no third party costs to pass along to the customer. You’re a valued customer in asset-based logistics, allowing for better accommodation when it comes to unique cost needs.
By working within their own network, providers like Combined Express, Inc. can provide the lowest costs through customized shipping agreements. With over 35 years of experience, we can provide competitive prices for your shipping needs.
#3: Consistent Performance
When it’s all one network, you can rely on the service you’ll receive. There are no questionable third parties to work with, so you can depend on the transportation services you need for your business. This streamlined transportation can help you get your items where they need to go, and build relationships with customers who depend upon your business.
