Dedicated Assets

As more and more shippers look to concentrate on their core businesses and eliminate the liability that comes with fleet ownership, one popular solution has become outsourcing transportation functions through a dedicated contract with a carrier. Cowan Systems offers dedicated fleet services which provide a customized transportation package designed to meet the specific needs of the shipper, such as specialized equipment, strict timetables and custom reporting.

A Cowan dedicated contract can be predicated on one of two variables: (1) dedicated volume (in which a commitment is given to handle specific volumes of business); (2) or a specific number of drivers, tractors and trailers provided on a cost-plus basis.

Dedicated fleet services can provide:

  • Fixed pricing and long-term contracts to provide cost control
  • Carrier management based at shipper’s location
  • Backhaul programs that share revenue with the shipper
  • Drivers dedicated to the specific needs of the shipper and its customer(s)
  • New equipment with state-of-the-art onboard communications
  • Backup from the regional truckload fleet for peak shipping periods
  • Regular customized reporting
