• How Commercial Trucking Changed the World

    09/30/2013 — Scott Frederick

    commercial trucking changedThe following guest blog post is being published compliments of Steve Updike Vice President / Principal at Updike Distribution Logistics, LLC, a Phoenix, Arizona-based distribution company.

    The commercial trucking industry revolutionized the transportation of products when it arrived on the scene. Before trucks were used for transport, America's goods were shipped via railroads. However, trucks would soon prove to be faster and more efficient.

    Advancements in technology

    advanced technology logistiThe combustion engine was invented in the mid-1800s, making trucking a viable alternative to the railroads. Solitary trucker-owners eked out a living, before even the invention of closed containers to protect goods. Roads were cobblestone and tires were solid rubber, making the journey a precarious one.

    Economic prosperity in the 1920s, along with advancements in wheel technology, brought the first real boom in trucking. The advent of covered containers on trucks also helped to protect goods during transit and expanded possibilities for the nascent industry. Soon, however, the Depression put many growing companies out of business and essentially paused the industry until the economy rebounded after World War II.

    Diesel engines expanded opportunity

    Through the 1950s and 60s, diesel engines came into use, making longer journeys possible. Other technological advancements, such as multiple axles that allowed trucks to carry heavier weights, increased the trucking industry's capability to meet rising demands for consumer goods.

    New laws spurred commercial trucking growth

    interstate highway system tIn 1956, the federal government authorized an interstate highway system, which would make long-haul trucking faster and more cost effective than other methods of distribution. The development of the interstate highway system coincided with the rapid growth of suburbs, making truck transportation even more vital because railroads stopped mostly in major cities.

    Market complexity prompted innovation

    Over time, as trucking emerged as the most common method of transporting merchandise, trucking companies became larger and more complex. Third party logistics (3PL) providers would ultimately work with companies to navigate those complexities, helping businesses find the most efficient ways to distribute products.

    Starting in the 1970s and 80s, the trend toward outsourcing to 3PLs gained speed. Congress passed the Motor Carrier Act in 1980, which deregulated the commercial trucking industry. This deregulation paved the way for companies to begin providing multiple services across transportation sectors.

    Before 1980, for example, companies mostly provided trucking services, operated on the railroads or stored goods. Companies entering the market were required to prove their entry didn't financially harm an existing company. Deregulation removed the barriers to entry and companies began offering multiple services and expanding their reach into the supply chain.

    As technology became even more advanced in the 1980s and 90s, possibilities for tracking products and analyzing routes became even more complicated. The technology side of 3PL became one of the industry's main selling points for companies looking to become more efficient in an increasingly competitive world.

    Today, with the supply chain so complex and with so many variables, many companies turn to third party logistics providers to manage their supply chain distribution.

    Trucking has come a long way since its inception, and continuing advances in technology, including fuel efficiency, mean that it will likely stay an important part of how goods get distributed across the nation.

  • Don't Bobble the Shipping of Critical Shipments

    09/27/2013 — Scott Frederick

    Bobblehead LogisticsJust ask the New York Yankees what it's like to promise 18,000 fans a Mariano Rivera souvenir bobblehead, but then have that same truckload freight shipment missing when the gates are opened. Yes, that is what you call a logistics nightmare — not to mention a bad customer experience in the making! If you read about this recent story, you may recall that the shipment of bobbleheads finally showed up at the game; but at that point the damage was already done.

    PartnerShip customers can learn from this story by planning ahead for their critical shipping needs. Since most of our customers are not transportation experts, finding the right partner with the expertise and resources to plan and execute time-critical or time-sensitive shipments is a great place start.

    PartnerShip has alliances with world-class carriers and expeditors to help its customers meet any need and any speed that may be required for their important shipments. We can tap into multiple networks and carriers to find the right service at the right price, and we have the expertise and resources needed to ensure — barring an act from God — your shipment delivers on-time and in tact. Some of our service options include:

    • Coordinated air and ground transportation modes
    • Domestic and international freight forwarding services
    • Customer-defined delivery dates and times, including holidays and weekends

  • New to Trade Shows and Exhibit Transportation?

    09/26/2013 — Scott Frederick

    New to ExhibitingWe know tradeshow shipping can be confusing. When you've been to as many tradeshows as we have, you've seen it all. Here's some of our sage exhibit transportation wisdom, gathered in one place for your reference. Learn from us!

    Before the Show

    Review your show's exhibitor manual closely! You will save yourself money by familiarizing yourself with things like the following:

    • Move-in dates
    • Move-out dates
    • Advance warehouse shipping dates
    • Show site shipping dates
    • Be sure to order all/any utilities you might need (electric, water, special services, etc.) well in advance, when discounts of up to 33% can be realized. The closer the show date approaches, the more expensive these types of items become.

    Important Materials to Ship with Your Booth

    It seems obvious, but we've seen it a thousand times — booths showing up at the tradeshow floor missing the basic essentials to make unpacking and setup a breeze, including:

    • Clear Packing Tape
    • Velcro — two-sided self-stick. Priceless.
    • Scissors
    • Permanent Markers
    • Stapler and Staples
    • Shrink Wrap

    Place at least two labels on each box in the event pieces get separated during transit. Clearly mark your company name and booth number on each box/label.

    Advance Warehouse vs. Show Site

    You have two options to ship your tradeshow shipment to your show: the advance warehouse or directly to the show site. If you plan to ship your booth and materials to the show well in advance of the show date, you will want to ship your materials to the advance warehouse. If time is tight and you cannot get your materials there early, shipping to the show site is a viable option as well.

    When shipping to the advance warehouse, your freight may arrive up to 30 days prior to the show dates — check your show's exhibitor service kit for information on shipment types and dates. If your freight is ready early, we suggest shipping to the advance warehouse whenever possible. Shipping to the advance warehouse gives you the ability to track your freight and ensure that it has been received, with time to double-check. Also, your freight will already be in place when you arrive for setup. Although some show decorators may charge slightly higher drayage for a shipment sent to the advance warehouse, the pros generally outweigh this cost.

    When shipping to the show site, your freight may only arrive during the scheduled times of exhibitor move-in. Shipping to the show site may run the risk of your shipment not arriving in time, being refused by the facility, or incurring additional charges. If your freight is sent directly to the show site, the carrier controls your delivery time. Carriers are assigned an unloading number according to driver check-in time, so make sure they arrive early!

    When it comes to getting your tradeshow shipment to your show, it is critical to understand your options.

    Furniture (ship it)

    All tradeshow decorators offer a wide array of furniture for rent, including tables, chairs, bag stands, literature racks, waste baskets, and more. Renting furniture ensures that the decorator handles delivering items to your booth (usually the day before the show opens) and picking them up after the show. While this is certainly easy, we've found that furniture rental can add upwards of 20% to your total show costs. The PartnerShip solution? Go to your local low price warehouse (Costco, Sam's Club, Wal-Mart, etc.) and buy collapsible furniture. Then just include it with your pallet and ship it to the show. Your one-time expense of buying a few hundred dollars worth of booth furniture could pay for itself after one show.

    Frequent Tradeshow Shipper Rewards

    It pays to ship with PartnerShip! When you use PartnerShip for your tradeshow shipping, you earn a $25 pre-paid Visa gift card on your third shipment and every show thereafter.* After you activate your Visa reward card from PartnerShip, use it to treat your tradeshow team to dinner, buy a few extra office supplies, or even apply it towards your next tradeshow shipment with PartnerShip — the choice is yours! For more information, download our Frequent Tradeshow Shipper Rewards flyer now.

    *Must be a round-trip freight shipment arranged through PartnerShip to qualify, beginning April 1, 2012 and ending March 31, 2013

    Carpet (ship it)

    Depending on the venue selected for your event, you can expect either a bare concrete floor or ballroom carpet greeting you when you arrive in your booth space. Not very fun to stand on for eight to ten hours a day for the duration of the show. The solution? Carpet.

    All major tradeshow decorators offer carpeting and padding for rental. It is important to note that standard carpet sizes are 9' x 10' even if your booth size is 10' x 10'. This is because most booths utilize a back wall and do not utilize the rear 1' of the booth space.

    Renting carpet and padding for the show, similar to renting furniture for the show, can be an expensive proposition. The PartnerShip solution? Invest in a portable interlocking floor system and ship it with your booth exhibit to the show. A typical 10' x 10' booth space will cost less than $300 to carpet. Rather than renting a couple hundred bucks worth of carpet at every show, just buy some and ship it with your booth.

    Material Handling/Drayage

    Drayage is the charge for moving your exhibit materials from the dock to your booth space on the tradeshow floor before the show, as well as for moving your materials back to the dock at the end of the show. Drayage is typically calculated on a fee per 100 pounds of freight per shipment. Drayage fees vary depending on the type of shipment, the amount of handling, the time of day, and other factors. Be sure to review and anticipate drayage fees when you prepare your show budget.

    Drayage service provides for:

    • Completing inbound carrier's receiving documents
    • Unloading and delivery of the goods to your booth space from the receiving dock
    • Storing of empty cartons/crates and extra products at an on/near-site warehouse
    • Returning empty cartons/crates and pickup of the exhibit materials from your booth space to the receiving dock and loading back onto the truck of your chosen carrier
    • Completing outbound carrier's shipping documents

    Common mistakes that typically result in additional drayage charges include:

    • Multiple small shipments arriving separately (it's always best to consolidate your shipment if the weight is over 200 lbs.)
    • Shipments being delivered after the deadline date
    • Missing your target date
    • Trucks arriving during "overtime" hours, which include all weekend shipments

    Insurance

    Check with your company's insurance provider for insurance available to you while exhibiting. You are encouraged to make sure your property is sufficiently insured from the time it leaves your place of business until it returns after the show. Speak with your insurance provider about types and levels of coverage recommended for your particular situation. In addition, your shipment will be covered by the carrier's liability, which is different than insurance. Liability is the carrier's financial accountability for lost or damaged goods. Each carrier has specific limits of liability coverage. If your material gets damaged or lost during transport, you must file a claim with the carrier directly.

    At the Show

    Always bring master copies of literature and your shipment information, including shipping carrier/pro number with you to the show, in the unlikely event that your shipment is lost or delayed. If the worst happens, at the very least you'll have a method for tracking down your shipment and materials to hand out to customers.

    Show Office

    Once you arrive at the show and determine your booth location, it's always a good idea to locate the show office — it will be your key support center while you are there. If you have questions about show procedures, rules and regulations, or just need general show information, visit the show office.

    Preparing for Show Opening

    First thing's first, set up your display! After you set up, have your empty packing material/containers ready for removal and storage during the show by labeling them with your company name and booth number. The official service contractor will clear the floor of all labeled material to be stored throughout the show and return the items to your booth upon show close. If at all possible try to break down your boxes and store your move-out materials under a table in your booth, this way you won't have to wait — sometimes for hours — to receive your empties at the end of the show.

    Once the Show is Open

    Be aware of your dismantle schedule and instructions in advance to avoid any possible confusion. Leave enough time for empty containers to be returned to you from storage.

    You will need to confirm your outbound shipping arrangements with your carrier. If your designated carrier does not show to pickup your shipment please be aware that the official show contractor has the right to "force" the freight out with another carrier of their choice.

    Closing Day

    Once the show is closed, pack up all of your materials to be shipped out and leave them in your booth. Please pay special attention to any move-out bulletins you may receive, which will include timelines for turning in your outbound paperwork. You will need to complete an official show contractor's Outbound Material Handling Form and turn it in at the service center desk once you have your exhibit material packed up and ready to go. Please double check that the carrier information and billing information are correct on your form. Show site personnel will collect your materials and take them to the dock for pickup. To ensure that your materials stay together and minimize the possibility of lost or damaged items, you may want to shrink wrap your material. Be aware that if you need shrink wrap and/or shrink wrap service from the decorator it will cost you extra money.

    After the Show, Prepare for Next Time

    After the show, make notes of what you learned through your show experience — these will be valuable throughout your exhibiting future. Keep copies of any forms, invoices, and show materials. The next show may be handled by someone else or may be too far in the future to remember all the details when the time comes. Remember to take the time to compare your costs with your benefits after the show as well.

    The Next Show

    Sometimes your schedule demands that you exhibit at another show, in another state, in a few days. This is when you definitely need an expert in handling and expediting your tradeshow materials. PartnerShip can help move your booth and materials in a timely manner, to be sure you are ready to go. We do all the tracking and communication with the carriers to assure this is one thing you don't have to worry about.

  • What to do Once Your Freight has Arrived at its Destination

    09/24/2013 — Matt Nagel

    PalletsYour freight shipment has been created, shipped, and tracked. The shipment has now arrived at its destination and you're ready to complete the final steps in the freight shipping process.

    As you know from my two previous posts, PartnerShip has tailored its website to assist customers before and during shipping. We'll now provide you with some steps for after-shipping best practices.

    Step #1: If the shipment was inbound, check for damaged or missing items.

    As rare as it may occur, it's always a best practice to record and check shipments for shortages, damages, and concealed damages immediately upon delivery.

    If you find an issue with your shipment, here are some guidelines for making sure the problem is properly documented:

    • Always notify your vendor of short or damaged shipments
    • Have the driver precisely document all exceptions on the delivery receipt
    • Contact the carrier within 15 days of delivery date to report concealed shortages or damages
    • Never pay for merchandise not received
    • Always try to have your vendor file the LTL freight claim
    • Claims must be filed within 9 months of delivery date (claims forms for PartnerShip carriers are in the Shipping Forms menu)
    • If you have any questions, call your PartnerShip account representative and they will gladly help you with the freight claims process

    Step #2: Pay your freight invoices.

    If your shipment was sent 3rd party billed through PartnerShip, you have the time-saving option of using PartnerShip.com to view, track and pay your Invoicing online. We've organized your open invoices for easy reference. The Invoicing tool allows you to view invoices by invoice number and pay invoices immediately with a credit card.

    Once your invoices are paid, you can use Payment History to see all of your past invoice payments and transactions.

    Step #3: Keep track of your freight shipments.

    In my last post, you learned that using Shipment History on PartnerShip.com is a great way to view all shipments that are in transit. Now that your freight is no longer in transit, Shipment History is a great way to get a consolidated view of all shipments sent in the past. By using Shipment History as a reporting tool, you're able to search shipments by date and keep track of your shipment frequency and details in one report - no matter how many different freight carriers you may have used through PartnerShip.

    You can also request a personalized Savings Report from PartnerShip.com for your company. Simply choose a monthly or yearly report type and click —submit. A PartnerShip representative will then provide you with a customized report showing you how much you've saved off of the carrier's base rates during that period of time.

    There you have it! You've completed the shipping process and are ready to send another one! Remember, PartnerShip is always here to help you at any stage and with any type of shipment you may need to send.

    • 89% offer financial planning assistance

    To end the evening, Craig Keilburger, co-founder of Free The Children, gave a very inspirational speech.

  • Thank You Truck Drivers for Delivering the Goods!

    09/17/2013 — Scott Frederick

    National Truck Driver Appreciation WeekAs we did last year, PartnerShip joins the American Trucking Association (ATA) in celebrating the men and women across the country who keep this country moving. National Truck Driver Appreciation Week (Sep 15-21) is when America takes the time to honor all professional truck drivers for their hard work and commitment in tackling one of our economy's most demanding and important jobs.

    America's truck driver workforce includes 3.1 million professional men and women that not only deliver our goods safely, securely and on time, they also keep our highways safe. They also log close to 398 billion miles each year and they deliver over 68 percent of the U.S. freight tonnage — or over 9.4 billion tons of freight.

    For 52 weeks a year, America's professional truck drivers make sure that our most essential items — food, fuel, medicine, clothing are delivered and lately they are doing so more safely and efficiently than ever before despite increasingly congested highways and ever more demanding logistics schedules," said ATA President and CEO Bill Graves in a press release from yesterday. "Their commitment is second-to-none and that's why we're asking that Americans take a few minutes to appreciate the effort these professionals put in every day.'

    This is the 25th anniversary for the National Truck Driver Appreciation Week. (Coincidentally, PartnerShip will also be celebrating its 25th anniversary early next year - but more to come on that later.) ATA is once again hosting a video contest focusing on the professional truck driver. To view the contest rules, please click here.  The best video will receive $1,000 to be used towards promoting the winning company's workforce and the image of the trucking industry! You can follow National Truck Driver Appreciation Week on Twitter and Facebook.

  • What to do While Your Freight is in Transit

    09/12/2013 — Matt Nagel

    Freight in TransitLast week we talked about what to do before shipping your freight, so now you know the necessary steps to take when setting up and scheduling a LTL freight shipment. You also know that PartnerShip.com provides you with the tools you need to monitor and manage your shipping.

    Let's pick up where we left off last week. Now that your shipment has been picked up … now what? While there isn't much for you to do now that your freight is out the door, there are a few actions you can take to keep an eye on your shipment and speed up the process for next time.

    Step #1: Prepare for future shipments.

    Now that you have a PartnerShip online account, be sure you are fully stocked with Shipping Supplies! You might also consider storing commonly used destinations in your My Address Book and product information you're bound to use again in My Products. This will save you valuable keystrokes on future shipments!

    Not ready to ship? Rate Quote History allows you to keep a record of all your quoting activity and come back to quotes when they are ready to move forward. If you're ready to ship, and your shipment details are identical to a previously quoted shipment, you can also start with Rate Quote History to get an updated rate quote without having to key in the same information all over again.

    Step #2: Track your shipment.

    Use Track Shipment to check the status of your shipment and get an estimated time of delivery (ETA). All you will need is the tracking/pro/or BOL (bill of lading) number and the carrier you used to for your shipment. This tool allows you to track all of the LTL freight shipments you send through PartnerShip, as well your trade show and small package shipments!

    Using Shipment History gives you an expanded view of all your shipments - past and present. This feature is perfect for tracking multiple shipments at once, using specific date ranges. This tool will provide a snap-shot view of all shipments you have in transit and when they are scheduled to arrive.

    Of course, you can also reach out to a member of your PartnerShip dedicated regional team at any time if you have any questions or in the rare event that an issue arises with your shipment while it's in transit.

    Check back next week for steps to take after you've shipped.

  • Before Shipping Your Freight

    09/06/2013 — Matt Nagel

    Freight TruckYou have a shipment to send out. As we discussed in a previous blog post, you've determined that this is a —LTL (less-than-truckload) freight' shipment (generally over 200 lbs and on a pallet). If you're like many small businesses across the United States, a freight shipment is often the exception rather than the rule.

    The good news is that, for what you're shipping, you've already determined the most cost effective and sensible way to get this specific shipment where it needs to go — give yourself a pat on the back!

    However, there is still some work left to be done before you're ready to send it on its way. As a small business, we know your time is valuable and your resources can be stretched at times. The good news is that partnering with a 3PL can save you significantly when it comes to money and time spent on shipping for your business.

    First things first: If you don't already have one, you're going to want to create an account on PartnerShip.com. This will give you access to easy-to-use freight tools as well as discounts with the industry's most trusted carriers. We've already cut down on the time and money you'll need for shipping, and all you've done is gone to a web site!

     

    Inbound ShippingStep #1: Update your routings for incoming freight shipments.

    Our inbound shipping tools allow you to add, edit, select and delete key vendors. Any time a new vendor is added, or selected from a commonly used vendors list for your association or industry, PartnerShip will ensure updated inbound routing instructions are sent directly to each vendor, ensuring your discounts are applied to all shipments you receive.

     

    Step #2: Determine your freight class.

    NMFC

    Freight Class refers to the National Motor Freight Classification (NMFC) and it is the shipping category for your product as defined by the National Motor Freight Traffic Association (NMFTA). Your product's LTL freight class is a major factor in computing your shipping charges. It identifies the size, value and difficulty of transporting your shipment.

    We know determining your freight class is one of the more cumbersome aspects of freight shipping, and that's why we've developed an entire ePaper on the subject, and a helpful —Find Your Freight Class' tool for our customers. We ask a few simple questions about your commodity and point you in the right direction.

     

    Rate Quote Screen

    Step #3: Rate shop and schedule.

    Now that you have all the necessary information for your shipment, you can accurately shop rates among the PartnerShip core carrier options to find the best option for your shipment. Plug in your shipment information in our Rate Quote tool and we'll automatically provide discounted quotes with the top LTL freight carriers in the industry. Choose the best rate and service for your shipment, click —Ship', and call your carrier for the pick-up (or simply ask PartnerShip to call the carrier for you). All that's left to do now is print off the bill of lading and shipping labels and wait for your carrier to pickup your shipment.

     

    Hopefully this provided some insight and gave you a starting point for shipping LTL freight through PartnerShip. As you can see, we're here to make the entire experience as easy as possible for you. Visit the Partnership Connection Blog next week for more tips now that you are ready to ship.
