Larry’s operates as an asset-based drayage provider. We believe making a substantial financial investment in our fleet is one of the cornerstones of our long-term success story. Our late model Mack® trucks are built for drayage and able to perform well in all-weather and railyard conditions. They are the company’s valued assets, and we keep them impeccably maintained and readily available for your next shipment.
We believe there is a formidable difference between an asset-based and non-asset-based intermodal transportation company. We also believe the customer benefits from the asset- based company, especially when comparing ownership, response time, accountability, and financial investment. See the difference for yourself!
Our financial investment in top-of-the-line equipment signals our commitment to meeting customers’ expectations over the long-term.
|Larry’s Cartage vs Non-Asset-Based|
|Company owned – modern tractors put reliable designed-for-the-job equipment in the field||Tractor ownership||Older – less reliable trucks and trucks unsuitable for drayage results can create a mixed bag fleet that jeopardizes shipments.|
|Dispatchers have complete control over immediate visibility into capacity||Response Time||Reliance on external resources increases response times and complicates the process|
|Demonstrates our commitment to customer and driver satisfaction over the long-term||Accountability||Outside independent resources results in irregular service|
|Signals to customers and drivers Larry’s commitment to their satisfaction over the long-term||Financial Investment||Success hinges on quality – size and reliability of firm’s contracted owner-operators.|
|Flexibility to respond to overweight and oversized containers and discontinuation of longer supply chassis||Chassis Ownership||Reliance on contracted firms for specialized chassis that may incur higher fees|
