Did you know that 70% of the freight moved in the US is moved by truck? On any given day, more than 3 million trucks are making their way across our nation. Even with emerging tech and changing times, the society we live in continues to rely on trucking companies to move supplies. Since the pandemic, more people are both ordering and tracking more items than ever before, and with a disjointed supply chain, truckers are dealing with more unpredictability than ever before.
Fleet owners don’t need to wonder where their next load is coming from when they join a trucking alliance. Growing trucking businesses can ensure that more trucks are full more often, maximizing revenue.
When you join trucking alliances like Sylectus, it can be a powerful tool in helping a fleet grow – both when they need additional freight and when they are short on capacity. In fact, a recent survey with Sylectus customers revealed the average fleet size grew by 133% after joining the network.
Pick your business partners
It is often said that in transportation, relationships are everything. Building and nurturing solid business relationships is key to long term success. Through a trucking alliance, you can work with carriers or brokers you already know while also forging new relationships, one load at a time.
Sylectus provides transparent information on companies’ credit worthiness, payment terms, and safety scores so you can make informed decisions while growing your fleet or trucking company.
These introductions can help create solid business relationships.
“I have provided unblemished on time delivery of time critical ‘line will go down’ product to a crucial suppler,” said Matt Henehan with Brock Transportation, a Sylectus customer. “That has cemented my relationship with this customer. I’m a genuine hero in their eyes.”

We’ve already discussed a couple of the benefits of joining a trucking alliance. Some others include:
Improved cost efficiency
As your business grows, having a powerful system to manage all of the details allows your operators to get more done. Using technology to automate processes allows your personnel to focus on the customer.
Customers say the system is also easy to use.
“Sylectus allows us to manage our entire business in one place: dispatching, billing, payroll,” said Ashely Holley with Hurley Xpedite Inc.
Faster decision making
Having your trucks posted to the alliance allows other members to see where and when your truck will be available. In this way, your truck can be considered for the available load, even before it is posted.
Sylectus uses technology that connects carriers. That allows for ease of communication between all these entities in real-time, helping problem solve faster, and streamline dispatching.
Better risk management
Having requirements to join the alliance ensures that the business or person you’re doing business with is exactly who they claim to be.
Through the power of a trucking alliance to mitigate supply chain issues and increase your exposure to potential loads and routes, they allow you to quickly and easily expand your trucking company in a sustainable fashion.
