Additional Information

Our Single Point of Contact Keeps It Simple

Communication with Cornerstone is simple. You have one point of contact for all of your tracking updates, market updates, pricing quotes, reporting and more. Why make it difficult? We make shipping LTL that much easier. One point of contact is just one phone call away.

Proactive Communication and Daily Updates Keep You Informed

We look at your freight every day. Simple as that. We receive daily reports from carriers every day with shipment status, costs and charges along the way. We also track each shipment ourselves every day. We over communicate. We want to make sure our customers know what is going on. We tell our customers ahead of time when news breaks. We stay ahead so our customers don’t have to. We also proactively keep our customers updated on expected shipping patterns, seasonality and holiday peaks, weather alerts, end-of-month peaks and more, so they can adjust their shipping schedules if needed. We keep you informed because we stay informed.

We Immerse Ourselves in Your Detail

Our value is to become a seamless freight provider by understanding every detail of your freight program. Our LTL specialists review freight dimensions, weight, value, and classification. We scrutinize load requirements and review loading & unloading facilities at both pick-up & delivery. What type of equipment does the load require? Standard trailer, lift gate, roll-up doors, pup trailers? We book the shipment with the right type of equipment needed. What about the abilities at the facilities where it’s loading & unloading? Is it a business, residence, school, hotel, military operation or cfs station? If it is a non-standard business, do they have a forklift, pallet jack or a way to unload? We listen, we learn, we plan, and we execute.

Mode Neutral Approach Tailors Solutions to Your Needs

We understand the complexities of moving freight which is why being mode-neutral is so important. At Cornerstone, we move your freight in the most cost effective way that meets your needs, regardless of the mode.
