Pathmark operates in Memphis, Tennessee as a third-party logistics company. We handle over-the-road truckload shipments on vans, reefers, and flatbeds. Pathmark is a multi-dimensional transportation company with a vast pool of resources used to provide our customers with the quality service they require.
From a service standpoint, we want to emphasize that time critical shipments are our specialty. Our personnel are well prepared to handle your truckload traffic, whether your shipments are erratic, "hot" loads or consistent truckload movements. You will find our customer service representatives prompt and honest in our response to all of your company's needs, and at a price below the transportation industry's infamous "expediters."
Pathmark prides itself on its ability to specialize in the successful movement of freight requiring dry vans, controlled temperature vans, flatbeds, and containers. The operational personnel of Pathmark Transportation possess backgrounds of experience in the proper use of each specific type of equipment, in order to provide the proper transportation, control, and maximum utilization of that equipment.
Pathmark Transportation is purely a logistics management company. We own no equipment. Therefore we are able to focus primarily on service to our customers, not on maximizing our equipment utilization.
Our reputation is on the line with each and every shipment we haul. Many "brokers" are merely carriers offering out the freight they cannot handle on their own equipment, often times sacrificing quality for a quick dollar. Because brokerage is Pathmark's expertise, we allow only the best carriers to participate in our quality service network. Boasting a portfolio of hundreds of 'hand-picked' carriers, our criteria for selection is based on their financial stability, insurance coverage, and ability to provide a high level of safe, dependable service.
Operationally, Pathmark's services include scheduling pickup and delivery appointments, en route tracing, claims, and billing. Details of each load in transit are compiled through our advanced software. Our extensive communications system includes inbound and outbound WATTS lines, facsimile machines, and full EDI capabilities. This system, which can be tailored to each customer's specific requirements, is used extensively to provide the customer with an accurate accounting of each shipment moved by our carriers 24 hours a day.
