Rounders knows that our carriers are a vital part of our mission to provide our customers with world class service. Our philosophy is simple: We treat our carriers fairly and equitably, and we seek to develop long term relationships that are mutually beneficial. Rounders is a strong carrier advocate. We understand the challenges and costs associated with being an asset-based carrier. We want our carriers to be strong and financially fit and we do our part to ensure both.
The National Association of Small Trucking Companies (NASTC) has designated Rounders as a Best Broker in recognition of our payment policies and favorable carrier practices. We go to great lengths to properly profile and understand our carrier’s unique capabilities. This gives us the ability to offer you the loads that make the most sense for you and your company.
With fuel prices and compliance costs both rising rapidly; timely payment has never been a more important issue for small and medium size trucking companies. Early in 2011, when our carriers needed it the most, Rounders implemented our 5 Day Pay Option. These terms are unprecedented and they have allowed our carrier partners to eliminate their factoring company which in turn is allowing them to keep more of their hard earned money.
While payment terms are a major issue for trucking companies, it is not the only issue. Too many brokers have no grasp of what life is like outside their office. Every member of Rounder’s team has a detailed understanding of heavy-haul trucking. We know all the nuances associated with moving big iron. We understand things like axle spacings, bridge formulas, and non-divisible loads. We know what questions to ask when specking a load and we know what details you need to know prior to pickup. When you run for Rounders you can rest assure that the information you are being given is as accurate and as precise as it can be. Every load is not always easy, equipment does not always cooperate, but at least you will know what you are getting into in advance. At the end of the day we are all in it together and we are committed to your success.
