Integrity, Reliability, and Experience
Building long term customer-carrier relationships
Spectrum Transportation Consultants, Inc. is a non-asset based 3PL (third party logistics firm) providing freight management services to shippers (manufacturers, wholesale distributors, and retailers). The company was founded in 1997 and is headquartered in Fall River, MA. Our broad customer base spans the U.S and Canada, and consists of both small and large companies across numerous industries. We have achieved steady double-digit growth and boast a staggering customer retention rate. We developed and operate a customized in-house software system for freight bill processing and payment.
Our transportation partnerships consist of a select group of premium freight carriers who are capable of providing the demanding service levels our customers require. This loyalty among our partners has given us powerful negotiating leverage, resulting in the best service at the most competitive rate for our customers.
Our LTL partnerships include quality carriers such as:
Our customer retention rate exceeds 90% over the past 5 years
"[Our company] selected Spectrum Transportation Consultants as our freight management solution in April of 2010. We were pleasantly surprised by the freight cost savings and the savings were with some of the carriers we were already using. Along with these savings we also get freight bill auditing that corrects any overcharged invoices providing additional savings. Our Finance Department really likes having only one bill a week for all of our trucking versus one from each carrier. The rate shop tool Spectrum provides also takes the guess work of carrier selection from our shipping clerks. We vetted a few transportation consultants and found Spectrum to provide everything we needed and with the best cost structure. All this with great service makes for a long lasting partnership."

"Spectrum has been handling our pricing and auditing our bills for 15 years now. It's the best decision we made. They have done a fantastic job finding and solving billing problems and our rates are the lowest we have had. I could not think of ever not having them as part of our company."
Mike - Director of Traffic - Manufacturer large scale commercial products
"Spectrum Transportation is a great 3PL to work with and they are there every step of the way to help simplify your freight shipments. They always go above and beyond with helping answer questions or whatever it takes to take care of their customers."
Chad - Freight Manager - Manufacturer of custom OEM products
"After being burned by traffic consultants who consistently and intentionally late paid carriers, I was ready to bring the audit/freight pay back in house. Fortunately, I met [Spectrum], gave it one more shot, and we have been working together now for 15 years. Their office staff is “first-in-class” in dealing directly with all types of carrier inquiries."
