A: Point your finger at the map and let us take you there! .
A: We know that you may not like every load that we offer you. With that being said if there is a load that does not suit your needs, then we will continue to look for loads that fit your needs!
A: We need four things from you: completed carrier packet, a copy of your proof of insurance, your W-9, and your MC authority paper.
A: NO! There are no contracts to fill out with you. We only need the four items mentioned above in order to begin working together.
Indeed you do. ALL owner-operators & carriers working with Highway Transportation Logistics are required to operate under their own motor carrier authority.
A: Each one of our dispatchers handles a different number of trucks. HTLogistics bases this on their level of experience. To keep quality high, we never over burden our dispatch agents with too many accounts to handle.
A: Absolutely! We're looking for serious & hardworking owner operators who want to put on miles at good rates. We're not looking for excuses or stubborn carriers who don't understand that the freight market is dynamic and rates fluctuate. Granted, as a new carrier it will be much more difficult for us to find you the truly great loads since all too many brokers and shippers will not work with carriers whose MC Authority is less than six months or one year. Once you've passed the one year mark, almost every broker becomes fair game.
A: There are many benefits of working with HTLogistics! We make it easy by handling all your paperwork so you can say goodbye to filling out carrier packets, phone calls, faxes, invoicing, and billing. We even take care of the rate confirmations. Easy Peasy huh!
A: Our agents will stay in contact with you and/or your drivers to obtain their current location and ETA to delivery. Once we know where you are and where you're going, we'll begin working on getting you a reload. Once a qualified load is found, our agents will begin to gather information and negotiate rates. We'll always contact you for approval on every load so there's nothing to worry about. If you agree to the load offer, we will begin the set-up process, completing packets, requesting insurance certificates, and submitting the necessary documents to the broker. Once complete we will sign the rate confirmation, dispatch you or your driver, and send you the original rate confirmation for your records.
A: Not at all. Many of our Carriers use us on an "as needed basis". We will discuss all of this with you when you sign on. The only thing we ask is that you give us as much time as possible ahead so we can better plan for your needs, and if your status changes let us know as well.
A: No problem. We can work with your current brokers and shippers or find you new ones. Our job is to simplify your business and keep your trucks loaded. We will make that happen every day!
