We’re more than just a trucking company. Our partnerships with other carriers across the country greatly expands our capacity, while the full extent of our vast knowledge base and transport experience is available through our logistics and freight management services.
But don’t just take our word for it – we are routinely recognized every year as one of the Top Logistics Providers in the country by such respected industry publications as Inbound Logistics, Transport Topics and Logistics Management.
Whether you are looking to fill a sudden spike in your shipping volume or for a partner to reorganize and run your entire shipping department, Syfan Logistics can help you with the big picture and all the details in between.
For shippers challenged with stretching their capacity to match excess loads – or even filling the occasional spot load – Syfan Logistics offers its third-party brokerage services to fill those emergency gaps. Our third-party carrier partnerships strengthen our capacity tremendously, allowing us to haul hundreds of loads weekly – and even more in the most pressure-packed peak seasons.
We’ve built a highly reliable, professionally qualified team of drivers, whose performance we monitor continuously to maintain our high standards. In fact, our third-party team of carriers is consistently ranked in the top twenty-five percent of the country’s most dependable and safest transport companies and drivers. Our network of drivers can cover a wide variety of shipping needs including power only loads, refrigerated freight, and drayage freight.
PRIMARY CARGO INSURANCE
While we supplement our private fleet with third-party carriers, we don’t take a back seat to safeguarding your loads. We are so confident in our ability to deliver that we back all of our customers’ shipments with Primary Cargo Insurance and Excess Liability Coverage – so you never have to deal with a middle man should anything go wrong with your shipment.
Finally, you can always be assured of constant updates on the status of your shipments – either through your personal representative on our 24/7 in-house dispatch team or by signing into our exclusive CUSTOMER PORTAL where you can view GPS updates at any given moment, day or night. Our partnership with McLeod provides the highest level of industry-leading technology to keep you “in the know” of all your shipments handled by Syfan.
SYFAN FREIGHT MANAGEMENT SERVICES
Our logistics team offers strategies to enhance your shipping operations with greater efficiencies and cost savings through our FMS program – freight management services.
Our FMS team brings significant advantages to shipper customers, primarily showing you ways to trim upwards of 10 percent off your freight costs.
The companies deriving the most benefit are those with freight costs averaging at least $3.5 million a year.
The Syfan FMS program is a combination of our 40-plus years of transportation knowledge and experience that is enhanced with the sophisticated computer tools of our national software partner McLeod. Our team allows companies to be proactive rather than reactive – cutting out wasted time and money –with a number of automated system strategies.
Instead of constantly haggling with carriers for the best rate, Syfan helps carriers reduce their own costs – and pass the savings on to our shippers – through the FMS program’s bid procurement tool. Utilizing optimization algorithms, the tool allows Syfan to align a company’s shipping needs with the lane preferences and capacities of their carriers.
The result is better rates for the shipper and more efficient use of existing lanes for the carrier. It’s a win-win for everyone.
Much of the waste in freight operations comes from mismatched loads – orders that don’t fill a whole truckload or conflicting delivery and pick-up schedules. Maybe a shipper needs an LTL carrier for one load but could benefit from intermodal for another. The options are endless.
Syfan’s mode optimization tool examines a shipper’s entire inventory of freight and delivery needs, then automatically consolidates or matches each shipment with the most efficient delivery methods.
Syfan’s FMS Load Execution finalizes the whole delivery process by automating the tendering of loads and much of the operational work.
Best of all, customers can keep track of every shipment through exclusive CUSTOMER PORTAL windows on the Syfan website that provide 24-hour, real-time GPS updates of load locations and progress.
