Benefits of an Asset-Based Solution
Bedford Logistics is not limited to the availability of other companies’ assets or the information they choose to make available to us. We have inside knowledge of Bedford Motor’s operations, as well as access to its trucks, providing us greater control over transportation in peak seasons and during other high-demand situations. When you work with Bedford, you can be confident that we will provide a seamless, continuous trucking experience from start to finish.
An Asset-Based and Brokerage Carrier
Due to our affiliate companies, Bedford Logistics is both an asset-based and a brokerage carrier. That mix gives our customers the best of both worlds — the use of our trucking assets and warehouse/distribution facilities for local and regional deliveries, and our brokerage skills and carrier relationships that expand our services throughout the country.
You benefit from our flexibility to deliver TL, LTL, local, long-haul, drayage, intermodal, warehousing and freight management services and our state-of-the-art transportation management and reporting systems.
