Our programs are designed to save money, increase performance, improve reporting and cost allocation and gain better visibility and control of supply chain costs. This group is comprised of special teams that are dedicated to meeting each client’s individual needs. We’ve proudly been named a Top 3PL provider for several years.
Ensuring Product Security
Tucker’s efficacy in understanding shipper requirements, and conveying them in quality communications to the motor carriers we use, has ensured product security for some of the best known corporate names in the world. It is a strength that strikingly and uniquely distinguishes us from not only brokers and other 3PLs, but from most carriers, too!
We are the only approved broker or freight arranging 3PL for some of the world’s best known brands, for just these reasons.
Every customer is unique with very different requirements. Every shipper of sensitive cargo has its own risk management requirements, not only do we actually read and communicate those requirements to carriers, but we take security to the next level. We have our own Risk Management department, that reports to ownership, not operations, with a special process for selecting and approving carriers to use. Often this requires having carriers meet, acknowledge and adhere to the shipper’s security requirements, too.
