Solving Puzzles, One Load at a Time
Every load is different:
Pick up, transit, delivery – in the trucking industry, these can change in a New York second. Weather, access, carrier/fleet, driver issues, and breakdowns are all different pieces to a puzzle that are part of the process. East Coast knows how to connect these pieces with superior communication and transportation knowledge.
When things go wrong, we get to work fast. The first order of business is seamless transparent communication with our customers. Consider this the edge of a puzzle. Fitting the interior pieces together means understanding federal requirements for drivers and carriers, fleet issues, as well as dealing with multiple personalities or weather delays. East Coast knows how to get people together to solve problems, fitting the final pieces together and getting your freight picked up, delivered, and communicating any unforeseen issues to empower you, our customer, with honest, timely, and reliable information to notify your customer with any delay.
East Coast will never leave the puzzle unfinished or without complete management oversight.
