Dedicated

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.
