We utilize a combination of propriety and non-propriety system platforms for comprehensive management of all logistics functions. With experience handling cold chain, hazmat and industrial products, our team of logistic experts are prepared to provide quality service to a diverse range of industries.
Our dedicated teams of service professionals promise customer satisfaction. Beginning with the carrier selection process, we know that our service and safety hinges on the use of trusted, established carrier partners. Our carrier partners go through a qualification process confirming identity, active insurance coverage and their safety rating.
There are new trucking companies starting up daily and it’s our job to evaluate the ever-growing pool of potential carrier providers to ensure only the best are hauling our client’s freight. To become a qualified RT&T Logistics partner, a carrier must have established active operating authority and meet minimum insurance requirements for commercial auto and cargo coverage, as well as comply with FMCSA (Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration) policies to maintain an adequate safety rating.
Our utilization of technology concentrates on helping our clients grow. With visibility to track and trace data, we ensure our valued customers are able to focus on their growing business without the headaches and worries regarding shipment progress.
Our tracking and tracing team monitors each driver via their GPS location. This location is updated within our TMS, providing full visibility to our client with the driver’s location.
Our clients can access the carrier’s locations using either our smart phone app or web portal. By tracking GPS locations, this gives us the ability to stay proactive. If a driver is showing off route or behind schedule, we are able to provide routing solutions, rather than waiting for the driver to call-in with a delay. Our tracking and tracing process also drives safety. We strive to keep driver’s concentration on the road and not on the phone with our team.
We understand the importance of service to the client. We stand out from our competitors with our 20 minute maximum response time regarding client inquiries, such as freight quotes, carrier capacity and routing status. Our team of dedicated account representatives keeps communication open.
As an industry leading freight fulfillment service, we operate as an extension to your logistics department. Should an issue arise with a shipment, we know our client’s directives and policies. Being aware of your operations gives us the ability to make decisions and implement a solution.
Additionally, our TMS is designed to generate shipment reports empowering your logistics team to maintain efficiency. Our ability to provide real time updates gives you assurance that your critical shipments are on time. In addition, detailed and summary reporting is available historically to give you the visibility needed to meet the demanding customer requirements inherent in today’s supply chain.
When you leverage our North American fulfillment logistics team to enhance your supply chain, you can be certain that you are working with industry experts who value lasting relationships. We synthesize customer service with technology to alleviate pain-points, providing your business with a consistent, top-quality partnership.
We have stepped out of the typical freight broker world and created our own unique approach to logistics to drive client satisfaction and fulfill our carrier’s capacity. We understand that without our trusted carrier partnerships, we cannot succeed. Load Connect has enabled us to successfully bridge the gap that compromised service and carrier partnerships allowing us to meet and exceed our partner’s and client’s needs.
At RT&T Logistics our freight routes via our internal routing guide and Load Connect before hitting a public board. We saw a need for using our trusted carrier partners first, with public boards being a last resort. We hand pick our carriers that are included within Load Connect, our clients see the same carriers hitting their dock regularly. By handling our shipments via our routing guides and Load Connect, our carriers see our commitment to keeping them moving and in return provide the service our clients need and deserve.
Our cloud-based application allows for use on any web connected device, such as your smart phone, tablet and desk top. This enables drivers to easily pickup their next load after a delivery, without having to call-in. Because our Load Connect prioritizes visibility to our trusted carrier network before posting on any public boards, you can be certain that any non-contracted lanes you need shipped are picked-up and dropped-off by pre-qualified carriers committed to providing best-in-class service.
In addition to the rapid growth in trade between North America and Asia, trade amongst the NAFTA countries continues to grow at a very fast pace. As companies take advantage of sourcing and distribution opportunities across North America, we are continually driving value add services to reduce cost for our clients and improve customer experiences.
Our expertise and extensive network throughout North America empowers execution at the local, regional, national, and international levels.
Whether by land, by air, or by sea, we stand prepared to connect you with trusted partners at competitive rates with direct line of sight to you as the customer.
The culmination of your company’s efforts is recognized at the time of delivery. Your transportation department is often tasked with being the bridge to a successful outcome when a challenge arises. Whether it is an internal challenge or one due to your supplier or client, the challenge remains, create a positive customer experience. Extending your logistics resources supports a solution that delivers the path to meet your customer expectations.
Our team is committed to presenting all modal options and seamlessly executing the shipment. Our team of experts has coordinated and managed all air service levels across multiple industries.
Expedite is often associated with utilizing air transportation or a dedicated exclusive-use vehicle from pickup to delivery. As shippers often scramble to move their time-sensitive shipments, they fail to take advantage of all reliable transportation options.
Our team has developed an expedited ground network built upon the combination of highly reliable carriers performing pickup and delivery to/from a local cross-dock and a team driver line-haul service connecting the cross-dock locations. Utilizing our network of carrier partners we work with our clients in selecting the best mode of transit for each time-sensitive shipment (expedited ground, dedicated ground, or air).
Traditional LTL carriers market themselves as a “one-stop shop” for your LTL needs, but moving your shipment via their network can take the form of “trying to fit a square peg into a round hole.” As they are incentivized to drive density in their network, there may be a better service to which you have no access.
We take a two-pronged approach to LTL transit, comprised of the leading LTL carriers at the local, regional, and national levels and a non-traditional LTL approach. This approach utilizes open capacity within our truckload partners as multi-stop truckload routings or pool distribution within select regions. Through our partner model, we enable shippers to access an LTL carrier with the best match for the requirements of each shipment.
In addition to our LTL routing options we manage multi-stop truckload routes and inbound consolidation centers for some of the world’s largest manufacturers, as part of their strategy for inbound LTL shipments. Optimizing your LTL capacity establishes the best strategic routing option for your supply chain.
Intermodal transport has experienced highly rapid growth in recent years. It is no coincidence that this growth has taken place during a time in which rail providers have made significant investments in improving their infrastructure. At the same time, the significant increase in fuel costs has shifted the viability of intermodal transport to a positive balance in many more scenarios.
We have been no stranger to this industry shift. In addition to proactively being a leader in intermodal transportation, our team is highly specialized in executing a seamless cross-border intermodal service.
Our expertise, systems, and relationships are driving a new standard in this growing industry segment.
Rail transport is the most significantly underutilized mode within the transportation industry. Utilization of rail equipment within the rail networks provides an opportunity to shift higher cost over the road shipments to the rail networks. The advancements in the rail industry coupled with increased fuel costs in over-the-road transport has made rail transport an increasingly attractive option. Rail transport is currently a viable transportation option in numerous scenarios across many industries. There are significant cost savings opportunities that are not realized each year due to a lack of awareness regarding the opportunity and/or a lack of confidence that rail transportation can be properly executed.
In addition to rail transport being a possibility for dense products in the long haul lanes of your ongoing operations, rail transport can often be leveraged to transport large equipment. Our team of experts can execute rail shipments for both your ongoing operations and large equipment movements.
Our initial operations began as a full-service truckload broker. Although our roots were founded in the dry van business, both refrigerated and specialized equipment (e.g. flatbed) transport have become a very large percentage of our overall truckload business.
Similar to other large 3PLs, we portfolio of carrier partners numbers in the thousands of carriers within our database. Nevertheless, we take a different approach by continuously rationalizing our carrier base to strengthen partnerships with high performing carriers. At the same time, our carrier qualification program is among the
most stringent in the industry and all of our qualified partners fully understand the repercussions of non-compliance to our standards.
Our logistics services drive further efficiencies within your operations, and assist you in meeting all of your unique business requirements (UBRs).
Our team leverages an extensive cross-dock network for strategic optimization across inbound consolidation centers and pool distribution sites across high velocity, long-haul lanes. In addition to providing cost savings, the consolidation and pool distribution sites service reduces handling and typically improves transit time.

review of your shipment characteristics and a small degree of advance planning, your cross-border challenges can plug into this strategic network.
