March 14, 2018 (PALM HARBOR, Fla.) – FreightCenter, a leading provider of third-party logistics services, today announced the availability of exclusive discounts to members of the Tampa Bay Business Association who ship less-than-truckload freight.
As a member, FreightCenter connects builders, carpenters, and other trade professionals to a larger selection of transportation modes and service upgrades.
The coordination of shipments to construction sites requires strict oversight and attention to detail. The time it takes to find the best value and schedule deliveries can be overwhelming to a project manager or general contractor. The trend toward outsourcing logistics – where companies like FreightCenter coordinate carriers on behalf of shippers – benefits builders by providing an all-in-one approach to quoting, booking, and tracking freight shipments.
“It is with great pleasure to announce our TBBA membership. We love connecting with businesses in our community, and we’re thrilled to offer even more exciting benefits to TBBA members. We’re the preferred shipping partner for many builders and developers throughout the country so it only makes sense to be that for builders in our area,” said Matthew J. Brosious, FreightCenter CEO.
“When members of the Tampa Bay Builders Association come together, it’s with a shared purpose: to build a better community by fulfilling America’s dream of home ownership,” said Jennifer Motsinger, Executive Vice President of the Tampa Bay Builders Association
To members who ship lumber, tile, stone, or other material weighing more than 150 lbs., FreightCenter offers:
- Concierge support for quotes, pickups and tracking
- Volume-discounted rates from national and regional carriers
- 20 years of experience coordinating shipments to restricted zones and construction sites
