Third-party logistics provider Evans has launched a freight brokerage division, Evans Freight Services, in response to market need.

"Manufacturers, wholesalers and retailers likely will experience difficulty accessing transportation services as the economy continues to improve," said Tom Aumann, who leads Evans' EFS division. "When the economy skidded, transportation fleets were taken off the road and a lack of transportation capacity resulted. With economic recovery, business owners must keep an eye out for rising transportation costs and decreases in service levels as demand outpaces transportation capacity."

Evans believes its carrier base will play a key role in providing brokerage customers an easy, cost-effective way to access transportation capacity.

"Nearly all of our clients have been with us for a decade or more because our disciplined approach, which determines the optimal carrier based on cost, service and specific client requirements," said Don Cox, Evans' CEO. "I believe our growing stable of brokerage clients will experience similar satisfaction."

Evans says its proprietary software provides complete client transparency throughout the supply chain and results in fewer mistakes.

"Fewer corrections and less time spent auditing and reconciling generates significant, positive impact to our clients' cash position and cash management," Aumann says.
