“Implementation of BestTransport has allowed us to decrease our load acceptance time from over 48 hours a year ago to under 4 hours currently on most loads while taking advantage of the most cost effective transportation partner with available capacity in each lane. With multiple shipping locations, we have centralized the process to have visibility and accountability in both service and pricing”.
