The Advantage of Domestic Forwarders Over Common Carriers

In the intricate web of shipping logistics, businesses face the crucial decision of choosing between a domestic forwarder and a common carrier. Both play pivotal roles in ensuring the smooth movement of goods, yet understanding the nuances between the two can significantly impact the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of your shipping operations.

The Personal Touch
EA Logistics provides personalized and tailored solutions for your shipping needs. Unlike common carriers that operate on fixed routes and schedules, EA offer a more flexible and customizable approach. While some common carriers have regional service and charge based on freight class, EA is national/international and provide an unlimited menu of accessorial services.  This personal touch allows businesses to optimize their supply chain by accommodating unique requirements and responding swiftly to changing circumstances.

Cost-Effective Solutions
While common carriers may seem like a cost-effective choice at first glance due to their standardized services, EA Logistics can offer competitive rates with added value. Our ability to deliver shipments faster, provide complete accessorial services like white glove and precision-timed pickup and delivery, all tailored to the specific needs of your business.

Communication Excellence
When was the last time a common carrier gave you a call to manage details or advise you of a situation with a specific shipment in a timely manner with a Plan B?  Or gave you multiple options to solve your or your client’s specific situation?  Probably never!  EA takes the time to get into the shipment-level details to ensure you have a happy customer.
