Somerset Logistics offers a quick and paperless "Onboarding" or set up process for qualified carriers. If you want to become a Somerset approved carrier and be able to move our freight, click on the appropriate link below to begin the onboarding prcess.
Somerset always has "two customers on every load, one being the shipper, and the other being the carrier." Somerset makes every effort to manage both with caring professionalism. As part of that process, Somerset has partnered with an industry leader, Internet Truckstop, and will incorporate their Onboarding system for setting up and monitoring carriers. The Onboarding and carrier monitoring system provide Somerset the ability to quickly set up new carriers, as well as validates and monitors all those qualified carriers to ensure they maintain the proper qualifications to move our freight.
The Onboarding system integrates with Somerset's Transportation Management System (TMS) - BrokerWeb in that it will automatically update information in BrokerWeb. Somerset and our carrier partners will no longer have to swap company documents and information by fax or email which will assist in avoiding missed faxes and lost paperwork. The Onboarding should take a carrier no longer than 5 -10 minutes to complete. Once the carrier fills out the information in the link the carrier is validated to move Somerset loads. Through the Onboarding link, carriers complete an online profile and can view, print and sign our contract electronically. After Onboarding, the carrier's information will automatically update and reside in our TMS or at Truckstop's integration portal. Along with the ease of setting a carrier up is the security of knowing that Somerset will only be working with valid qualified carriers. The Onboarding process and the data base of qualified carriers are updated and information pushed into Somerset's TMS daily. If a carrier falls out of tolerance, goes out of business, or loses insurance Somerset will be able to see the change and not use the carrier.
Somerset's Onboarding system also includes Internet Truckstop's full suite of carrier protection products (CACCI) which further protects our partners and customers from working with unqualified carriers. Our Onboarding process helps protect individuals, Somerset and our valued customers from possible transportation scams, claims and lawsuits. Internet Truckstop's CACCI includes:
Once a carrier has been validated or cleared they will appear as a cleared carrier within Internet Truckstop's load board. For Somerset account managers and independent agents, Carrier Clear quickly identifies approved carriers when searching for trucks. Also, carriers can quickly identify Somerset as a partner who they are already setup with while searching for loads (green icon on Truckstop). Lastly, our Onboarding process further enhances our green initiative by providing a green, paperless and automated solution from start to finish.
