Let’s face it, carriers today are dealing with a growing pool of brokers to haul loads for. Some of these brokers operate in a very unethical manner. One of our founding principles is based around treating carriers with the same amount of respect, honesty, and fairness we show to our customer base.
General Transportation is family-owned, and this same family also operates multiple asset-based fleets that work side-by-side of our brokerage. We do what we say we’ll do and will never ask anything of a driver we wouldn’t ask of one of our own. Having control and working next to a fleet gives us insight into what goes on from your perspective. This easily gets lost when dealing with brokerages who don’t understand what’s its like to own and operate trucks. Transit times, fairness about detention, the list goes on and on. Don’t you want to pull for a company that truly values and understands what you do?
