The current time for freight is actually a gold mine for business owners, this may be difficult but try and find the owner drivers directly (Sub-contractor drivers) and ask them directly, they will always say yes so they can make more money by cutting the main contractor out. The savings can be anywhere between 25 to 40% depending on the driver, best way to do this if you don’t have your own warehouse is, setup with a third party logistic centre to handle it and then contact owner driver direct to pick up product. That’s removing the reps pay, company pay and it’s profit margins. You’ll only pay for handling and storage plus driver, removing the other two.
