More Than Just "Booking Loads"

More Than Just "Booking Loads"

I remember when I first started using Amazon.com. I loved the site and the selection of books that it offered. I no longer had to drive to the bookstore and search shelf after shelf to find the book I wanted. They were good at what they did, and had the customer service to back it up. From that day forward, I rarely purchased another book from an actual bricks-and-mortar retailer. For many years, Trinity’s business model mirrored Amazon’s earlier days. Our focus was on providing the best possible service as it related to our core competency at the time – truckload and LTL brokerage. Our business steadily grew year after year and our expertise in the industry continued to expand. However, just like Amazon, we realized something after a while…

Not Just Books!

After making several book purchases, my next visit to Amazon’s website revealed something – now I can get more than just books! CD’s, DVD’s, electronics…it’s all there on one site! Amazon realized that if they had a deep understanding of the retail industry by becoming a top book e-tailer, then they could use that knowledge to become a premium provider of other product categories.

At Trinity, our years of experience in the transportation industry led us to the same realization. As we continue into 2013, Trinity has similar objective – to continue our new journey as a single-source logistics solutions provider. This means not only offering our customers a valuable resource in one particular category of business, but in other categories and services as well.

Other Things

As a company, we still maintain our commitment towards being a valuable resource for your brokerage needs. However, what else can you get when you deal with Trinity? We offer a wide array of different services, and some of them include the following:

Intermodal. Trinity has a dedicated team that can provide you with competitive intermodal pricing. As truckload capacity continues to be tight, rail can be a more efficient, economical, and greener option.

Transportation process review. Trinity can analyze your current supply-chain processes to identify areas for improvement and/or automation.

TMS implementation. We can implement a TMS to automate currently manual processes and streamline your logistics functions.

International. If you’re unsure of what’s involved to import a shipment from abroad, export a load to a customer, or need more competitive pricing, Trinity can serve as your provider for any international services.

Warehousing. If you’re looking to relocate your current warehouse facility, need more warehouse space, or require any other services as they relate to handling your freight, Trinity can arrange those warehousing needs through our network of warehousing partners.

Specialized equipment & other projects. Due to the unique characteristics of their freight or requirements of their customers, many shippers have needs that extend beyond “normal” transportation modes and processes. We can assist with these types of projects and offer several solutions or options.

The next time you do business with Trinity, remember that our services extend well beyond truckload and LTL. We’re here to support all of your supply-chain processes, serving as your “one-stop-shop” for any of your logistics needs. Just like you can do more than buy a book on Amazon, you can do more than just “book” a load with Trinity.
