Our partnering carriers gain an advantage by only paying for the city shipping services they require. Employees are paid by the hour and our route drivers are paid by the pound.
If there is no freight, there is no expense. No wasted unproductive employee hours.
Ultimately, Central Carriers provides safe, reliable equipment and personnel, while controlling cost and providing revenue for our carriers.
Clearly, our carriers have an advantage.
Central Carriers is a 99 door cross dock facility located in the northwest of Edmonton.
Our partnering carriers service areas in B.C., Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario and the rest of Canada including the Northern Territories.
Central provides advantage. It has a fleet of 27 trucks providing zoned pick-up and delivery services for the city of Edmonton. This operational process allows our carriers to have full exposure to all of the metropolitan areas of Edmonton.
I wanted to take this time to write a short review of Central Carriers and the services they offer. We have been using the Central Carriers consolidation program for over 22 years and in that time, we have come to appreciate how beneficial it is to use this program. They send one truck daily to pick up all our out of town freight and disperse it to the carrier of choice to the final destination. We receive invoices from only one company which makes accounting much easier. This program saves time for both our office staff as well as our shipping department. Drivers are always very courteous and professional and we have had very few mistakes over the 22 years of using them, and if a mistake does happen, Rick and his team are always willing and ready to help solve the problem in a timely manner. Central Carriers consolidation program is a beneficial part of our business, and we look forward to many more years of working together.
It's great to work with the team at Central. Their professionalism and urge to get the work done is phenomenal. It's simple as sending an email; never any surprises. They always go above and beyond to accommodate whatever needs to be done. Absolutely outstanding!
