Owned assets + a large, growing network = more capacity and easier shipping
When selecting a carrier for your freight, you often have to choose between an asset-based company and a traditional freight broker. Both have benefits and can make sense for different shipments, but having to choose one over the other may leave gaps in your supply chain. To have a balanced transportation strategy, you need a provider that can offer multiple capacity options based on your needs. Achieve that goal with ArcBest.
Understanding ArcBest capacity sources
As an integrated logistics company with owned assets, ArcBest is uniquely positioned to help you find the right solution for every shipment. Combining the reliability and consistent pricing of an asset-based system with the size and flexibility of a large carrier network results in a total service offering that helps supply chains run smoothly.
ArcBest’s assets — ABF Freight® equipment and company-owned flatbed trailers, dry vans, rail containers and refrigerated trailers — offer nationwide capacity for less-than-truckload (LTL), truckload and dedicated shipments.
Network of providers
Through our Panther Premium Logistics® fleet, MoLo’s large truckload brokerage network, vetted LTL and final mile providers, and contracts with major air and ocean lines, ArcBest has built a large capacity network for customers shipping domestically and internationally.
With one account, you can access the capacity you need, when and where you need it.
Get added value through supply chain expertise
Leveraging those capacity sources in the best way means taking a strategic look at your transportation strategy. Depending on your specific needs, you could need to switch between different modes of transportation to maximize cost savings and efficiencies. Or you could need contingency plans in place to help you respond quickly in times of tight capacity, delayed freight or other unplanned events.
The ArcBest team can evaluate your supply chain and recommend the optimal transportation mix. Learn more about different shipping options and then see how mode optimization can benefit your business.
