How would F1 Freight Systems Inc. be used if we shipped with Vision?
Vision utilizes F1 Freight as the first choice on all our shipments. When our trucks are full or F1 Freight does not service specific lanes we then use our network of partner carriers.
Why ship with a logistics provider and not direct with a common carrier?
Although some companies believe shipping direct with carriers will improve services and rates, common carriers are only able to service when they have the capacity to. Logistics providers, on the other hand, find capacity through various carriers. We suggest you ask a carrier which lanes they service directly; the majority of carriers outsource loads.
Will I get better rates from a common carrier vs. a logistics provider?
Depending on how urgent a carrier needs a lane, pricing should be better. However, logistics providers have the flexibility to look after more lanes using various assets which leads to improved average based and landed costs.
Do carriers also broker freight?
Most carries broker freight they are unable to move on their own trucks. Even a fleet of 1000 trucks can only be in so many locations at a given time! Logistics providers, however, are not bound by those limitations.
