For over 130 years, we’ve negotiated freight rates by reviewing every competitive option.

 

Since transportation can represent 15 – 20% of the final cost of scrap, getting the best price is key. For over 130 years, we’ve negotiated freight rates by reviewing every competitive option, then aggregating the total volume of our customer base.  We know all the best ways to save.  Like coordinating inbound scrap freight with outbound shipments of finished products. Or finding savings in backhaul or round-trip rates.  Keeping us on top of the world is our advanced, web-based transportation network that shows over 80,000 current rates for rail, trucks and barges.

Clients around the globe trust our freight management expertise.  We have shipped recycled metal to destinations including the U.S., Canada, the Caribbean, South America, Western Europe, CIS/Russia, Asia, South Africa and Mexico.

Our customer service is far from typical.  We partner with customers on important issues such as:

  • Negotiating freight packages
  • Tracking in-transit inventory
  • Establishing carrier service goals
  • Evaluating carrier performance
  • Making freight payments
  • Pre-auditing freight bills
