How our Association Memberships enhance our freight sales management performance
Association memberships play an important role in our team’s performance in the area of freight sales management. Here’s how:
- Access to a diverse array of partners & vendors across the freight shipping marketplace: When our team attends association events, engages in association networking groups and gets to know other association members, we act as a ‘connector’ between our carrier clients and a wide array of potential partners and vendors that they can do business with in the future. We extend our newfound relationships for the benefit of carriers and shippers alike who work with us.

Our team of freight shipping experts at Select Carriers gains access to a variety of educational resources, such as instruction sessions, case study sessions, workshops, webinars and panel discussions, that share best practices for both freight shipping overall, as well as for the discipline of freight sales management. This helps us be more well-rounded professionally, and apply that knowledge to our client operations.
- Increased brand awareness and recognition as a leader in the freight shipping marketplace. When Select Carriers participates in associations and exercises all of the features and inclusions our membership packages contain, we are effectively raising the brand awareness of not only our company, but also that of our clients who often join us in participating. It raises our prestige and that of our clients, as an active contributor to the advancement of the freight shipping marketplace.
