You’ve probably heard enough shipping horror stories to last a lifetime. From packages clearly marked “fragile” being thrown into a truck, to missing and stolen parcels, there are a thousand reasons that shipping can be anxiety-inducing for both the recipient and the shipper.
To help prevent these mishaps from happening it’s important to use properly vetted carriers.
So What is “Vetting”?
Simply put, vetting is the process of determining which carriers are most reliable for a multitude of reasons. Factoring in FMCSA Safety Rating, the carrier’s history, and databases that help track the most trusted carriers, companies are able to help determine which carrier or broker will meet your requirements while maintaining your quality reputation.
How Do You Pick A Carrier?
Every company vets carriers differently, so it’s important to choose not only a reliable carrier but a company that’s reliable as well! Vestra vets using a combination of the outlined vetting process and our own unique system.
Having been in business for years, our company has intimate knowledge of the industry and uses information that only we can gather from being directly involved with carriers on a day-to-day basis.
Why Does it Matter?
So why does this all matter? At the end of the day, it’s your freight being shipped! As the saying goes “don’t cut off your nose to spite your face”- going with the cheapest or most attractive option may not be the best move long term for your company.
Freight is always at risk in transit, wouldn’t you feel better using a carrier that has a proven track record of success?
