Consolidated Fastfrate – today and tomorrow

Now, more than ever, our company is focused on measuring, managing and improving our performance metrics. Phase One was introduced during the recent recession out of necessity. We brought on engineers to fine tune our systems and procedures and drove costs and inefficiencies out of our system, wherever that could be achieved. It proved successful and we recently implemented a more aggressive Phase Two program with nationwide team participation and leadership. It is an ongoing journey of continuous improvement with the end game being a level of service excellence that sets us apart from our competition.

We listen and learn from the shipping community

We’ve always been a transportation company who has listened closely to client feedback and concerns and have developed programs customized to our customers’ exact requirements. We have created dedicated fleets, built warehouses, invested in technology and even set up elaborate pick and pack distribution programs to satisfy our customers. We will continue to take an entrepreneurial approach to problem solving. We will create new opportunities by empowering our managers to develop solutions that achieve “Simplified Shipping” and “Service Excellence”.
