Jarrett Logistics Systems, Inc., (JLS) is a company that specializes in transportation management services for manufacturing companies, wholesalers and distributors who ship or receive product from all over the world. As the global economy has been the center of attention in recent years, controlling every aspect of your business has become more important than ever. Companies are being forced to take a closer look at all costs, including those that affect their supply chain. Transportation costs may be a deciding factor in determining how competitive a business is within the marketplace.
Through our centralized Routing Center, JLS allows our customers to gain more control over their supply chain, become more cost effective and increase efficiencies. At JLS, our customers are assigned a dedicated Logistics Coordinator as well as a Customer Account Team (CAT) who knows and understands the customer’s business requirements. All suppliers must also contact the JLS Routing Center for routing instructions. This allows JLS the ability to route all shipments on the appropriate carrier, based on shipment characteristics (location, weight, size and cost) and so customers are not incurring any unnecessary freight charges. Our customers may contact the Routing Center for assistance on outbound orders, access our online order entry system or receive a Routing Guide and continue to work directly with the carriers. JLS also manages freight bill audit and payment services, carrier performance, reporting and more. Our proprietary software allows our customers to access information online in order to manage their day to day shipments (order entry, quotes, tracking, and reporting).
You will find that JLS offers the most flexible and proactive logistics program available. We do not have a “one size fits all” approach to our business. We realize that every company is unique and we are able to customize our solution(s) to meet any business requirements.
