About Me

Transportation for the Elderly

Hi. My name’s Betty. I’m sixty-two years old and live with my husband, Matt. My mother lives on our property, but at age ninety-one still insists on living alone. Mom has a good mind and for her age does well physically. She drove up until four years ago when we all decided it would be best for her to not be behind the wheel. It’s worked out well with her living on our property. Matt or I would take her places. We made sure she had groceries, made it to doctors appointments, and to her social engagements. About six months ago, however, Matt fell ill and our lives changed. I am his full-time caregiver, and Matt can no longer drive. I had to find help for my Mom which was difficult to do. I am going to share what I found and hope it helps you should you ever need transportation.

Getting Into E-Commerce? Why You Need A Less-Than-Truckload Broker

E-commerce is most definitely the wave of the future. So many brick-and-mortar businesses are gradually being replaced by virtual vendors who are willing to ship products to clients in a relatively short period of time. Things have changed, and it's up to you to evolve if you want to remain on the cutting edge. If you're planning to dive into e-commerce and want to make sure that you operate from an economically sound standpoint, it's best for you to partner with a less-than-truckload (LTL) broker.

LTL Brokers Have Strong Relationships With Shipping Companies

If you talk to a number of business owners about how things were when they first started out, you'll probably hear a lot about the inevitable learning curve. Unless a person has received a ton of hands-on training or mentored at the feet of a business guru, they will usually have a strong initial period of ups and downs. It takes time to find out which manufacturer makes quality products, how to develop an effective marketing campaign, and which shipping technique is going to work nearly every time. The learning curve months or years can be very valuable because of the information that you gain. However, the learning curve could potentially set you back behind your competition. You might be losing more money than you're gaining simply because there is so much you just don't know.

You could potentially shorten your learning curve by working with an LTL broker. These are professionals who will usually have a very strong pipeline of shippers that they work with. The broker understands the power of reputation and will pair you with the best shipper for your needs. 

LTL Brokers Help You Save Money

Saving money goes hand-in-hand with running a business. The better deals you can get, the more profits you're able to generate. You don't want to spend a ton of money on shipping costs because you don't realize that there is a better way. Let an LTL broker negotiate a deal with different shipping companies so you always get the best offer each time you send out products. It just wouldn't make sense to cover the expense of a full truckload when you only need a tiny portion of it for the current shipment. The LTL broker keeps track of shipment schedules so they can find a truck that is headed your way for less.

Get your new e-commerce business off the ground the right way. Find an LTL broker at a company like Move Freight and let them introduce you to the world of affordable shipping.
