As more and more shippers look to concentrate on their core businesses and eliminate the liability that comes with fleet ownership, one popular solution has become outsourcing transportation functions through a dedicated contract with a carrier. Cowan Systems offers dedicated fleet services which provide a customized transportation package designed to meet the specific needs of the shipper, such as specialized equipment, strict timetables and custom reporting.

A Cowan dedicated contract can be predicated on one of two variables: (1) dedicated volume (in which a commitment is given to handle specific volumes of business); (2) or a specific number of drivers, tractors and trailers provided on a cost-plus basis.
