The Carrier’s Roadmap for 2020 Freight Truck Rates
We’ve watched the COVID-19 pandemic not only flip the script on this year’s freight market projections, but also alter the lives of most Americans.
There’s a lot being said about truck rates and brokers and most of it isn’t true. As we all know, brokers don’t set prices, the economy does. When the economy rebounds this year, we will see rates skyrocketing. Analysts and pricing experts are saying that the less-than-truckload market is looking up.
When carriers choose WM Martin Transport as their broker, we are committed to finding you the best loads possible because our job is to serve you.
These current times have been challenging and WM Martin Transport wants to publicly thank all of their carriers for trusting our family business.
Carriers have the investment and the equipment and the tough job of driving the truck. When carriers choose WM Martin Transport as their broker, we are committed to finding you the best loads possible because our job is to serve you. Trusted carriers are so valuable to us because we don’t stay in business if we don’t move the load.
Carriers have a choice whether they accept a load or not. They have a choice in which broker they work with. Thank you to all our carriers for choosing WM Martin Transport.
While there will always be unscrupulous actors in any industry taking advantage of an emergency or crisis, carriers have a choice in which brokers they work with. By selecting a broker with the TIA logo, such as WM Martin Transport, carriers can rest assured that they’ve selected one of the industry’s most ethical businesses.
“WM Martin Transport keeps me moving, making money versus trying to load from a load board, with loads that have broker-ed many times over. They pay well and on time. You are appreciated and respected as part of the team. I’ve found my home.” Jim P. | Experienced Carrier
