GTM Freight Brokerage Services

Published On: February 27th, 2023

Did you know? In addition to our fleet management and North American freight offerings, GTM also offers freight brokerage services. Instead of delivering shippers’ goods ourselves, we connect them with top-level freight companies to complete the circuit.

While GTM offers virtually every transportation and logistics service a customer might need, we know it is also sometimes helpful to link shippers with our trusted partner carriers. When more than 72% of the U.S.’s annual freight by weight is moved by more than 1 million trucking companies of all sizes and types, customers often take a chance on unknown and unproven carriers via load-matching websites. 

GTM believes you should thoroughly understand the value, details and record of every carrier you use to move your goods. Are they known to us? Are they competent? Cost-efficient? Having already experienced our company values, our returning customers know they can trust us to navigate this process and to make the right shipper-carrier connections. 

This is the value GTM’s freight brokers offer: trusted relationships. We only recommend carriers we know through our own experience with them. Naturally, we value partners who demonstrate reliability, on-time delivery and excellent customer service. Correctly identifying and building a network of competent partners helps grow all of our businesses.

Most importantly, our carriers must demonstrate a paramount focus on safety – from first contact through every single delivery. We check Compliance, Safety and Accountability (CSA) ratings and monitor each company’s safety record. We also use the TIA Watchdog reporting system to exclude carriers with documented adverse experiences. At GTM, we believe you shouldn’t skimp on safe practices, ever, and our recommended carriers work toward the same goal.

Talk to us about your projects. In fact, you can connect to us in real time via our website. GTM is your one-stop, 3PL partner to manage your entire transportation supply chain, whether we’re moving your goods or identifying the best, carefully vetted carrier to get them to their final destination.
