We all know every minute of every day is extremely important as you are competing with other brokers to cover your customers’ loads at the best possible rates.
That’s where CarrierLists can help you and your brokerage win more bids and cover more loads.
Our database of refrigerated carriers is built by freight brokers specifically for freight brokers. This means you have the information you need to cover refrigerated loads at your fingertips. Search and sort refrigerated carriers by backhaul and headhaul lanes from and to any location in the US and Canada.
Plus, every carrier has a complete safety and compliance profile via SaferWatch. So, you'll have the confidence that when you're talking to carriers who comply with your standards.
Put yourself in this scenario:
You’re building trust with a customer. You’re moving more and more dry freight with them every month. One day they are stuck because their broker who does most of their produce loads isn't getting the job done.
So they hand you the opportunity. You gladly accept it. You are already counting those juicy produce margins. The only problem is none of the carriers you typically use have capacity.
You post the loads on a couple of boards. Then you wait...and you wait...and you realize...no one is calling. Not even other brokers fishing for information.
How do you search for refrigerated carriers if they don't call on your posted loads?
What do you do now? How do you find trucking companies that specialize in running produce from the West coast, or South Texas, or the Southeast? Or the carriers who run teams into or out of those areas.
Do you start calling posted trucks on the load boards? I did too. You’re lucky to find one refrigerated truck posted.
Do you search your TMS system for any refrigerated trucking companies you can find? Been there done that.
How accurate are the carrier profiles in your TMS system? If your TMS is anything like mine, then it is all just one big crap shoot.
After I had gone through the options above I usually just stared at my screen with my head in my hands. I won't lie either...I cursed under my breath. How about you?
Desperately Googling as panic starts to take hold.
The only thing l could think to do at this point was to Google "list of refrigerated trucking companies in the Southeast, or Texas, or Canada, or Illinois." Or wherever my load is picking up from or delivering to at the end.
Have you ever tried this?
Did you find the online directories that pop up on the first page of search helpful? They all seem to be inactive with only a handful of trucking companies.
Or are most of the listings 3PLs only?
It’s hard to tell the listings apart. None have the trailer types, specialties, or regions for any of the carriers listed. You just have to call blindly to find out if you're in the ballpark.
How much time have you wasted calling the wrong carriers? How frustrated do you get knowing you are in a losing position?
I finally reached my limit of frustration. Tired of finding myself in losing situations trying to make long shots happen. So, I started doing some homework, and learned how to create the most comprehensive, and profitablelist of refrigeratedtrucking companies you will find anywhere.
In short, I created a super list of refrigerated trucking companies. A super list that would take the best freight brokers years to put together on their own.
How you can build a Rolodex of refrigerated carriers in less than 5 minutes.
What I needed (really what we all need) was a pre-qualified or vetted list of refrigerated trucking companies. A list where every single carrier is qualified as a trucking company who runs refrigerated trailters.
A list where anyone of us can easily find carriers, and be on the phone checking capacity and rates within 30 seconds. This means you can stop calling random carriers, and start targeting the carriers you know specialize in refrigerated and run the same regions as your load.
So, after a few months of research I finally learned how to build this super list of refrigerated trucking companies.
How did we build it?
We've built it and maintain it by doing the hard, boring, tedious work of calling carriers So far we've called over 35,000 carriers with between 5 and 500 trucks in their fleet.
During our telephone calls we've collected the data that freight brokers need to move loads on over 25,000 fleets. This inlcudes trailer types, preferred lanes, specializations like teams, and updated phone and email info for dispatch and sales.
We now have over 6,500 qualified refrigerated trucking companies in North America. All have comprehensive profiles along with full safety and compliance info from SaferWatch.
Phenomenal ROI – Your 1st Load Every Month Pays for CarrierLists
How much margin can you make with a database of over 6,500 refrigerated trucking companies? That's up to you, but for only $279 per month (for six unique logins) it only takes one load per user to make multiples on your investment.
I can tell you that I always built my own personal lists as a freight broker. From my experience, working off lists are much more profitable than load boards.
As an example, I was able to cover an extra load a week with the first list I ever built. This list consisted of flatbed and step deck trucking companies that specialized in running down to Laredo and back up to the Midwest and Northeast.
My extra loads brought in at least $300 in margin a week. Over 50 weeks this meant my little list had made me at least an extra $15,000 in margin. Not only that, but my fellow brokers also used my list to book loads for their customers out of the Midwest as well. Our office, at a bare minimum, made an extra $30,000 margin that year with my first list of 40 carriers.
