Learn More About Having an Onsite Resource
A dedicated, onsite Spot employee allows you to concentrate on your core job duties. This resource coordinates all lanes by working directly with carriers, measuring key performance indicators, and ensuring you stay within your transportation budget.
Spot provides truckload services to more than 1,000 customers representing a wide variety of industries across the United States, Canada, and Mexico. These services include Dry Van, Refrigerated, Flatbed, Expedited, Power-Only, Drop Trailers, Hazmat, and Specialized Moves.
We couldn’t do what we do without carriers, which is why establishing relationships with our vast network of over 70,000 carriers is one of our primary focuses. Our team of Carrier Sales Representatives is dedicated to maintaining these relationships while ensuring that all carriers meet certain performance standards set by both Spot and our shippers.
Our proprietary technology gives us visibility into capacity by associating a score with each carrier to represent location likeliness. This helps us better understand where carriers want to go so we can match them with our loads. This technology also helps us make sure our Carriers remain qualified to haul for us.
We work with alike shippers and consistently review lane activity and utilization. By overlaying our customers’ supply chains, we can easily solve capacity challenges while beating seasonality.
We know that sometimes you don’t have a full truck’s worth of product… that’s why we specialize in Less-Than-Truckload (LTL). Our goal is to serve as a one-stop shop for all your LTL needs while simplifying the complex processes that typically come with shipping LTL.
Our dedicated LTL team members have extensive training in LTL-specific pricing, technology, billing, and tracking.
We partner with multiple LTL providers and work with them on your behalf to leverage volume discounts. Our LTL providers also understand that on-time delivery is critical.
Our technology arm, Red Technologies, makes shipping LTL easy. Book shipments, view rates, and track loads…all in one Spot.
Our customers use intermodal to transport anything from beer to cardboard and frozen yogurt to plastic bottles. Intermodal is the perfect replacement for over-the-road shipments, specifically, those that are long haul, require discounted rates, or do not have time sensitivity.
Blending intermodal with other modes of transportation is an ideal addition to your supply chain. Intermodal offers a cost-effective solution if you have a product that needs to be shipped cross-border or long-distance.
Our proprietary transportation management system complements all of these solutions, providing complete end-to-end visibility into your supply chain. Check out just a fraction of what Red TMS offers below.
Dynamic Routing Guides
Red TMS maintains all truckload rates for your contracted carriers and populates city to city and zip code to zip code across all modes. All carrier rates have both an effective and expiration date, allowing you to expire rates or extend carrier contracts as needed.
Spot Market Visibility
Place any shipment on the spot market to obtain coverage or benchmark rates from multiple carriers. Once an acceptable bid is received, the shipment can be tendered to a carrier.
Track and Trace
Our real-time tracking means you never have to worry about tracking down your product. We offer load tracking, load notifications, and a courtesy call to let you know everything is on schedule.
LTL Load Execution
Book shipments, view rates, and track loads from one platform. Generate and send BOLs directly from the system with ease.
Generate custom reports that align with your business requirements. Utilize reporting for visibility and analysis of spend, KPIs, SLAs, carrier performance, and more!
We offer shippers a wide range of services, including customized logistics, track and trace, truckload, and LTL shipments. Our experienced team can also help you with any questions or concerns about your shipment.
