Business owners are always looking to make things simpler. From everyday tasks to major processes and even the commute home, simpler is always better.
At FreightorGator, we agree. That’s why we’ve set out to make booking LTL shipping simple and easy. It seems like common sense, but in the shipping industry, this way of thinking is revolutionary.
Simplicity Makes Sense
You don’t have to look very far to find businesses that try to make things simple. I’d be willing to bet some of you have spent some time on Amazon.com the past few weeks – maybe even at work. (Don’t worry, we won’t tell your boss)
Why is Amazon so popular? Because they’ve made it easy (sometimes too easy) to buy everything you could ever want. Just a few clicks, and it’s all on the way to your door. Two days later, you have a porch full of smiling boxes and perhaps a ton of buyers’ remorse.
Amazon’s entire business model is about simplicity, and the consumers reap the benefits. Customers get great prices, faster shipping and a wider selection of purchases to choose from.
And Amazon may be the biggest, but businesses and industries of all sizes are adopting this way of thinking and making their sales processes as simple as possible. Why is the shipping industry so far behind?
3PLs Are Complicated
Sometimes, entire industries can be reluctant to change. In this case, the LTL shipping industry has been held back largely because of the business model of 3PLs depends on complication. Booking shipping needs to be complicated in order for you to pay the premium to have someone do it for you.
But the truth is, with today’s technology booking your shipping should be easy and painless to do on your own. Why would you intentionally make something more complicated than it has to be? Or an even better question: why would anyone pay someone overhead for extra complication?
