For many people, including here at HG Logistics, a third party, asset based freight broker in Cincinnati, Ohio, March Madness is a wonderful time of the year. We look forward to the nonstop college basketball action, and revel in glory when our bracket beats out our coworkers and friends. The bracket seems to be the thing in March that can draw people together. Even those who haven’t watched a college basketball game all year will fill out their bracket just to have a shot at being the best.

Thinking about your freight options can be a lot like a bracket. There are so many brokers and carriers out there, you just have to narrow it all down until you’ve got that one team on top- your champion. HG Logistics would like to be your Duke, or Kansas, or University of Kentucky….who do you have winning it all?

On the first level, the most basic, we easily beat our competition…Are we affordable? Yep. HG Logistics will not promise you that we will be the cheapest. You don’t want the cheapest, because, trust us, you get what you pay for. Cheap will get you a no-show for pickup, a day late on delivery, a scheme, or a load held hostage. Anyone who has used carriers or brokers knows tha these are all risks in our business, and sometimes issues are legitimate and unavoidable, but they increase tenfold when you go cheap. We won’t be the cheapest, but we will promise to be affordable. We won’t tack on surprise charges, and we never “take a cut” of incidental charges like layovers or detention. Are we affordable? Oh yes. On to the next round.

Will we show up? Yep.  We know what it means to be reliable, and we are. We show up when we say we will, for pick up and delivery, and you’ll have freight updates whenever you need or want them. Use HG Logistics and the status of your freight will never be a mystery, it will just become routine to expect us there on time, because we will be there!  Already in the Sweet 16!

Do we answer the phone day or night? Yep. We know that sometimes you can’t make a call to check on your freight until 8:00 p.m..That’s okay, we will pick up your call and make sure you have all the information you need. We answer when something unexpected pops up, and we’ll take on your toughest after-hours challenge. We pride ourselves on being available.  Elite 8, here we go!

It takes a special company to earn your trust. We realize that. One of our points of pride is that we have wonderful working relationships with our customers and drivers. We know our business partners as people, not just as professionals. It is important to us to have respect for our professional roles but to also show that we care about people. We value family, and we value our business partners’ families as well. HG is committed to contributing to the families and communities that we work with and in, making us a great company to work with and to work for. On to the Final Four!

What is left? There is so much. We are asset based, long established and not sitting in our basements. Maybe it’s our top of the line traffic management system, our internal relationships, our quality of service, our friendly dispatchers, our fair sales team, our guys who will fight for what’s right when someone is getting the short end of the stick….we have what it takes to but through the bracket at the Big Dance…teamwork. Every team needs it, and the HG team has it. All we need to do now it win when we make it to ….The Championship.

Look, we are realistic and we understand that you probably have a whole stack of emails from freight guys. If you are like most of our customers, you have a short list of the ones you like to use the most. Obviously, we hope that we are on that list. We would prefer to be at the top. How we get there is different for everyone. You tell us. How do we make it to the top of your list? Customers are our lifeline. We know that and we appreciate that fact. Let us be your one and only.

Would you like to use a team of professionals who can bust up your bracket? Give us a shot and we will show you why we are your go-to guys. Give HG Logistics a call at 513-244-3026 anytime and we would be happy to help you find the freight solution you’ve been searching for!
