Are you getting lots of business but struggling to pay the bills because of how long it takes some companies to pay you? Do you have a strong team of drivers available, but barely keeping up with the latest technologies, never mind regulations, such as ELDs?
At Bennett, we understand that moving freight is only half the challenge. That’s why we offer tools and services to supplement your operations and help you grow your business and stay ahead of the game. At Bennett, our carriers are just as important as our customers. Why? Because you are the most important part of our business, and we try to make your experience as pleasant as possible.
Many carriers who move our freight will tell you they like transporting loads for Bennett. They like the friendly, family atmosphere that is part of the culture here, and they appreciate interacting with a team of people who are always willing to help in any way they can. You can’t find that everywhere.
Payments are issued within three days without a fee, or you can choose to use our quick-pay program through EFS.
Load Board Access
When you go through the onboarding process, you’ll be able to download a mobile app that will provide access to Bennett’s load board. You can also request that we email the loads to you.
Your Own Personal Contact
No more 800 numbers that get you passed around to different people you don’t know. With Bennett, you are assigned your own personal contact to call if you have questions or concerns about any issues. That person will be your point of contact. He/she will take care of anything you need, 24/7/365 live support.
ELD Device & Data Processing Support
If you transport five or more loads a month, we’ll provide an ELD device for your driver, as well as the monthly ELD service fee. We’ll mail the device to you, or you can go to any of our Bennett facilities nationwide and we’ll install it for you.
