National Logistics Management Cuts Carrier Costs with New Program
DETROIT – Expanding its cost-cutting program for carriers, National Logistics Management (NLM) has partnered with DriverSource Inc., a specialized staffing source to the transportation industry. Through this partnership, NLM, a non-asset based, third-party logistics provider, is offering carriers a 5-percent discount on long-term leasing of drivers and direct hire placement. The partnership will also help mitigate the effects of rising driver turnover rates, providing NLM carriers with an "on-demand" source for driver fulfillment. NLM and DriverSource will offer NLM preferred carriers industry-specific services around the clock, throughout the United States. In addition to its truck driver leasing program, DriverSource also offers SSP Placement Services, a logistics staffing service specializing in the recruitment and direct placement of critical employees such as upper level management and executive level positions. NLM's affiliation with DriverSource is a part of NLM's Partnership Advantage, an effort promoting collaboration among carriers and loyalty to customers by providing cost-saving incentives to approved carriers. Other Partnership Advantage programs include a fuel consumption reduction program called the EPA SmartWay Transport Partnership, and SuperFleet, a fuel discount program. NLM also offers a number of discount programs on lodging and acquiring safety and compliance materials.
