Benefits of AF freight management services?

Preserve your capital. We invest in systems and training, so you don’t have to.

Ensure capacity. No more scrambling to find carriers. You stay focused on more strategic tasks and we make sure loads are covered.

Retain strong control over freight operations. In fact, outsourcing your operation can actually enhance control as sophisticated systems track every aspect of operational and financial performance. You get the intelligence you need to monitor the program, without getting buried in execution details.

Addressing the typical arguments against outsourcing freight management services

Service will suffer. The thinking is that an outside firm won’t be as invested in service as internal staff. In reality, that’s just not so. In fact, in 83% of the cases, service levels improve after a strategic outsourcing decision (Logistics Outsourcing Report).

We’ll pay more. While in-house managers may do a great job negotiating carrier rates, a 3PL with scale can bring things to the table that in-house staff cannot. For example, advanced systems can optimize routes, find backhauls and do other things to drive costs down. Also, when outside carriers are needed, 3PLs can leverage their aggregate spend to obtain favored rates.

We’ll lose direct contact with carriers. Often, many of these existing relationships are retained by the 3PL and it makes sense for the customer to maintain an active dialogue with these long-time carriers.
