Transportation Management

Let us handle the hard stuff. Solutions tailored to your needs, from load planning and procurement, to complex strategies at scale.


From flexible brokerage and managed transportation services, to express expedited delivery, dedicated capacity and consulting services, DTC’s transportation management solutions help you move raw materials, parts and finished goods with greater efficiency.

We provide mission-critical oversight of carriers, vendors, freight audits and payments, claims, charge-back notifications and other processes. With solutions tailored to save you money, reducing your investments in equipment, software, facilities and personnel, we use a lean-based analysis of shipping patterns and constantly work to identify areas for improvement and cost-saving opportunities.

Most of all, our transportation experts take the time to understand your requirements. Trained in operations, analytics, procurement and customer service, we work with you to design the optimal routes for your supply-chain, determine the most efficient carriers and ensure that they perform at a high level.

Our customer-specific strategies involve best-fit route configurations and carrier management, including sourcing at the lane level – as well as price optimization, asset utilization when appropriate and ongoing analysis of shipping patterns. Our focus is on delivering value to you through superior performance by being proactive with strategies as your supply-chain evolves.


Express/Expedited Shipping

When you have time-sensitive freight to move, delays can be catastrophic. We’ll manage your time-critical shipments from origin to destination, with end-to-end tracking.

DTC has the expertise and resources it takes to make sure your urgent freight is picked up and delivered on time. And we’ll never lock you into just one mode – we can adjust quickly within our transportation range if circumstances change. We can facilitate time-critical shipments of all sizes. Our dedicated operations team excels at problem-solving, backed by state-of-the-art digital oversight.


Last Mile Delivery

Last mile is a critically important part of the supply-chain that requires a 360-degree focus on customer service. That means a network of high-quality truck fleets with the capacity and service-conscious drivers your customers expect.

And whether your customers need curbside, porch, threshold, room-of-choice, standard setup or white glove delivery, we offer flexible service options tailored based on your preferences, suited to your products, and focused on customer expectations. With an intense focus on on-time delivery, safe handling and communication, we make customer satisfaction the goal of every last mile delivery.


Freight Brokerage

We’ll fight to get you the right rate the right carrier for your freight needs. Our freight brokerage service matches loads to carriers for rapid, automated freight movements. Our brokerage experts stand behind our service. They understand the business inside and out, and will work with you to make sure you’re satisfied.

Our brokerage team can tailor a solution across multiple modes for your supply-chain. Our huge shipping network is a reliable source of quality equipment, trusted drivers and vetted carriers. We have rigorous processes in place to monitor carrier safety ratings, insurance qualifications and operating authorities, and our rating engine produces electronic scorecards that inform the selection process.


Managed Transportation Services

Streamline your transportation needs. Many clients want the flexibility of a brokered option without the hassle of multiple partners.

Our Managed Transportation Services are more responsive to changes in your supply-chain. We take a partnership approach that considers your transportation patterns and seasonality. For example, we can arrange specific solutions for occasional shipping requirements, tailored to your type of cargo and routes. Then, if your needs evolve, we can discuss the benefits of a contractual agreement.


There are hundreds of trucking and transport companies. But few logistics specialists can provide the capacity, service and problem-solving capabilities of DTC. Tell us your most demanding requirements. Bring us your toughest challenges. We’ll partner with you to develop smart supply-chain and distribution solutions based on innovative, customer-driven logistics and distribution strategies. All backed by over a century of service and third party logistics expertise.


It takes great service to build a company that can last. Distributors Terminal Corporation (DTC) has lasted for over 100 years, continuously managed and operated by the Hendricks family for more than four decades. We’re extremely proud of our longevity and look forward to the next century of service.
