Technology

Nearly twenty years ago, long before many non-asset based third party freight companies were even in business, Broussard began investing in technology to help its clients. Today, Freight Cowboy harnesses the third generation of those investments and places that advantage in the hands of its clients.

Our proprietary (Freight Cowboy) Shipment Management Software System is:

  • Completely web-based and quick to deploy
  • Easy to use and intuitive
  • On-demand

Experience

Since 1978, our firm has focused on logistics management and has built a team of experts with dedicated account support personnel. Back when we started, very few companies (except the very largest) had in-house transportation and logistics expertise. Line-item auditing of accounts payable was a very new practice then; computer software was not yet available to support it. Today we process nearly $1 Billion in freight invoices annually, which allows us to:

  • Acquire substantial market intelligence of shipping best practices
  • Leverage that $1 billion of buying power on behalf of our clients

Service

We let our clients speak for us. We constantly seek out their opinions on how we are doing and what we can be doing better. The principles that drive us are:

  • Responding in a timely manner
  • Being sensitive to customer needs and requests
  • Providing dedicated support personnel

This approach has earned us some of the highest marks in any industry in client satisfaction when our clients are asked whether they would refer our company to a colleague or friend.

"Delivers value to MSD Ignition by saving us time and money in outsourcing the transportation invoice and payment process, plus helping us get better rates from carriers. That’s a great competitive advantage if we apply those two variables more cost-effectively than our competitors."

“There is a large value proposition to having a partner handle our logistic needs. Not only are they saving us money with increased efficiencies on rate negotiations, but the time we save with their technological advances is amazing. Because of their expertise, resources and volumes, they have been able to negotiate and maintain very competitive freight rates. As a result, they have minimized escalating freight costs and saved DPT a substantial amount of money. And the more they save us, the more competitive we can afford to be.”

Certified Proof

Freight Cowboy is an elite logistics management company.  In the transportation industry, there are literally thousands of brokers, freight forwarders, and third party logistics companies (3PLs) in operation across North America.  Less than 1% of those, however, is TIA Performance Certified, a recognized best practices program within the transportation industry emphasizing, among other things, a strict code of ethics.

What this means to clients. Awards and recognition are one valuable way to measure success.  But the bottom line is all this hard work should have tangible benefits for clients. Here they are.

The benefit of TIA Performance Certified companies is the peace of mind:

  • That the firm is part of the industry’s elite,
  • That the firm adheres to the strict TIA Code of Ethics and best practices doctrine,
  • That the firm has a guarantee bond up to $100,000,
  • That you will not spend more on increased bond payments to carriers.

Consider this the next time you look for help shipping your cargo.
