Dedicated trucking—where a group of drivers and equipment are assigned exclusively to a chosen set of lanes or facilities—is likely the way of the future. We’re seeing an increasing number of truckload carriers adding dedicated options to their fleet capacity services as a way to ease volatility in the ever-changing freight transportation market. It’s not hard to see why. Smart shippers, third party logistics companies (3PLs), and carriers recognize the long-term advantages of dedicated logistics, and many are establishing contracts now to set themselves up for future growth.

For shippers and 3PLs, dedicated operations help guarantee available capacity at a fixed price throughout the year—even during peak seasons. For carriers, dedicated freight allows them to maintain consistent business year-round and avoid cyclical spikes.
While shippers have conducted RFPs for years, many 3PLs are increasingly offering dedicated freight in the same way by passing contract opportunities through to their carriers. Because of this, carriers are relying more and more on a blend of 3PLs to ensure access to year-round freight.
