As a business owner, nurturing professional relationships across your supply chain is essential — including those involving suppliers, vendors, partners and customers. However, building these connections can be difficult for shippers, particularly when they are looking for new freight carriers.

The partnership between shipper and carrier is vital to ensuring timely pickup and delivery of products. It's also crucial since carriers often serve as the face of your company, as their drivers directly engage with your customers during delivery. That's why conducting thorough research is paramount when selecting carriers.
