“Since 2013, my company Horizon Freight Lines, Inc has been moving freight for Automated Logistics Systems. I view the entire ALS carrier sales staff as partners on my team. They are friendly, helpful, professional, and committed to helping my company keep trucks moving. Automated Logistics Systems is a first-class operation!”
Mike, Horizon Freight Lines
“ALS was very proactive in making sure that we were onboarded…while putting me in touch with all the right contacts to make sure we had EDI running before our GO-LIVE date with [our customer]. We reviewed all our lanes and worked together to make sure our customer would not be impacted at all during the transition. Furthermore, ALS has been instrumental in helping TBM quote and participate on many lanes that were not previously available for TBM. ALS has been instrumental in the successful transition for [our client] and continually looks for opportunities for improvement, not just for ALS, but for their carriers and their customers.”
“The launch of multiple routes wasn’t an easy task but ALS and their team were an excellent support during this time. ALS’ timely response and commitment to the team are the highlights of this partnership.”
Estefanía, Faurecia Automotive
“For over 10 years I have counted on ALS, and in that time they have always delivered. From automotive interiors to aerospace, to steel stamping, I have yet to find a more consistently reliable logistics provider than ALS. The level of service I have received from Colin at ALS has been outstanding, and surprisingly rare. I really appreciate that calls are always answered or returned, he pays attention to the details and provides proper follow-up. I have and will continue to recommend ALS to my colleagues.”
“We would like to take a moment to express our appreciation for everything that ALS has done for Alliance Interiors. We have been very satisfied with the service that we have received over the many years doing business together. It’s great to have a company like ALS that understands our business. We rely heavily on their expertise in transportation to meet the needs of our customers. The drivers that haul for us are professional, easy to work with, and do a great job representing ALS. We love how you often provide the same carriers for dedicated runs to haul our products throughout the year.
This helps the delivery process go much smoother because they are already familiar with our customers and our delivery policies. The staff at ALS is very easy to work with and we have worked with different staff members over the years, and each one is very professional. Any time there is a problem they are quick to find a solution and get the problem taken care of. We thank you for your services and appreciate all that you do.”
Patrick, Alliance Interiors
ALS has been an awesome company to work with! We have used ALS for a few years now and they have gone to extreme lengths to make sure loads are delivered on time or in an acceptable manner. ALS and their team have gone to great lengths to make sure that if there are any issues, which rarely happens, they are communicated to us. ALS has also gone to great lengths to make sure to get to know their customer, with regular on site visits and follow-up phone calls. I would recommend any route, large or small, to ALS. They truly know how to service their customer.
Craig, Faurecia Interior
Our experience with ALS’s shipment portal, TMS has been great! The software is very user friendly and makes functions such as generating a BOL and tendering shipments to carriers a breeze. If there are any issues with the shipping process, the ALS team is available to help almost immediately. The customer service we receive is top notch and I would recommend them to anyone looking to work with a trusted logistics partner!
Common Questions from Carriers
What kinds of freight does ALS have for carriers?
ALS primarily moves new auto parts freight giving us a large footprint in the dry van space, however we also have significant opportunity available in the specialized, expedite, and LTL sectors as well.
What are your payment terms?
Our standard payment terms are Net30 and we are committed to that! We place significant value on making sure our carriers get paid on time. And of course, QuickPay is always an option. Discuss with your contact in Carrier Sales.
How much dedicated freight do you have?
ALS operates a significant amount of dedicated business in the Midwest and in the Michigan–Texas corridor. We are running 3,000+ loads/month on the dedicated side and growing. Opportunities are entering our pipeline every day and we are always hunting for new carriers willing to set in and get involved.
How many carriers are in your network?
We have worked with just over 40,000 carriers over the years. Through that process of working with those carriers, we have really dialed in on the ones that are a good fit for ALS, aligning both operationally, and in terms of the Core Values we focus on. On a monthly basis, we work with about 1,100 unique carriers. However, our Tier 1 carrier network is much smaller coming in at around 120 close partnerships.
