Why partner with LPS?

  • LPS is one of few providers in the country that can give you a single-source partnership, yet allow you to maintain relationships with the best 3PLs, brokers and carriers in the market.

  • Very few 3PLs can compete with our program’s lean pricing structure and flexible technology.

  • Our proprietary Transportation Management System will give your team a standardized process for load creation, award/dispatch, tracking and payment.

  • Our TMS system is web-based and carries zero implementation costs, it can integrate directly with your ERP to help automate manual procedures.

  • We can host fixed LTL & FTL rates yet give the open market a chance to spot quote every shipment, your team (or ours) can compare the costs of fixed contracts vs. spot bids…often time the spot bids are “backhaul” rates that can be very competitive.

  • You can leverage our dedicated account managers to take on much of the logistics workload that your team is burdened with each day.

“LPS consistently delivers for us. With the number of different suppliers across the country, I trust their team to help keep our factories going.”
