NEW TO THIS BUSINESS?
As a brand new carrier who just received MC Authority or planning to do so it is very important to insure that your truck or trucks are running consistently generating revenue every day for you and your business. However, as you may have already discovered many dispatch firms will only work with carriers who have been in business for at least 6 month or more. There is a logical explanation for this. You see, there are a lot of brokers who will not take a chance by booking a load with a newly registered carrier and risking potential cargo loss or damage. Therefore they will prefer a carrier who managed to stay in business for some time and will present a lower risk. For a dispatch firm this translates into more work trying to find brokers who will work with a newly registered carrier. Here at Alfa X we believe that everyone has to start somewhere! We have relationships with many brokers willing to work with newly established transportation companies and we are willing to service new carriers even so it may require additional effort on our part for the first 6 month or so. In return we usually get a fully “accredited” client who will continue doing business with us in a future! Also during your first year we will guide and assist you in a form of consulting.
If you are new to this business you probably have a lot of questions and you probably come to realization that you will encounter unforeseen challenges related to operation of your business. With our experience in transportation we will not only take care of booking your freight but will also share our opinion related to issues and problems you may encounter. As long you remain our client Consulting is totally free to you.
