Liftgate delivery service is an economical means for LTL (less-than-truckload) shippers to onload, offload or transload heavy or bulky items while limiting the risk of damage to those goods and injury to workers.
As a longtime 3PL which also provides warehousing and trucking services, we’re committed to getting our clients’ shipments to their destination on time. But it’s going to be of little consolation to them or their customers if it doesn’t arrive intact. Liftgate delivery service helps ensure that.
It’s a fairly common add-on when you work with mid-to-large trucking/delivery services, but not everyone understands why it’s so important – and why contracting with a 3PL trucking company that knows how to properly spec all the weight requirements is imperative.
Manufacturers, retailers and other businesses seeking to team up with a top Cleveland trucking logistics firm are probably mindful of recent “trucking industry recession” rumblings. Before on-boarding a new trucking 3PL, it’s reasonable to want assurance the transportation team chosen will having staying power.
Leaders at long-time Cleveland trucking logistics firm On-Time Delivery & Warehouse urge potential clients to bear in mind: The trucking industry has always operated in cycles of dizzying heights and sharp declines. That’s because our network of transportation logistics partners is not only national but global, and we serve a broad range of industries, leaving us more exposed than most to the fickle market fluctuations across industries and continents.
But we’ve remained strong in business all this time because of what we do best: Planning and preparing. We may actually earn more than other industries when times are good, but that allows us to prepare for fluctuations.
Our customers and partners stick with us because they know day-in-and-day-out, we plan extensively in ways that allow us to streamline, reduce waste, lower costs and get goods where they need to be – intact and on-time.
We’re going to take the same care in preparation for our own sustainability – because we want to be around to serve this community and beyond for many more years to come.
