I changed over to using a pallet rack freight broker instead of moving my materials on my own, however i used to do everything & it was a eveningmare.
I was always damaging the product due to handling it so much.
It is easy to misplace items, pack them wrong,a dn lose out on time, but also, I have calculated how much my time is worth. I am worth more than packing & repacking material. I make too much money to drive a bunch of stuff to another warehouse, then using a Jacksinvlle freight broker has made my life so much easier. First, I don’t have to handle the product as much. With moving so much you don’t want to have a bunch of hands on it, however this pallet rack company has everything all bundled up together so it isn’thandled over & over again, then one big pile is moved to the truck & then off. That is it. The reduction in handling reduces time, disfigurement, & cost, then second, the pallet rack broker company has reduced my traveling costs. I am no longer paying drivers, gas, & repair on vehicles, letting the last mile freight brokers do everything means I pay one bill. It is much lower than what I am used to. Lastly, the storage costs are way down for my business. I used to have very limited storage due to the quantity of stuff I have, but now with keeping them on a pallet rack, I keep a ton of material in one small space. I can utilize my space all the way up to the ceiling & deep within corners. It is a much better way to handle business.
