LT 460 - Broker Connect

Lets Truck with Kevin Rutherford

Join Kevin and The CEO of Traffix, Chuck Snow to talk about the past and future of the trucking industry. 3 decades of experience Traffix is Canada’s longest-serving third-party logistics specialist. We are backed by more than three decades of experience serving a wide range of industry sectors across North America. TRAFFIX’s roots go back to 1974, when Chuck Snow left his family’s floral import business to answer the call of the open road and become the owner-operator of his own rig. Five years later, he launched TRAFFIX as a load broker and third-party logistics company focused on injecting a customer service philosophy into an industry which at the time was riddled with regulation, inefficiencies and unfair pricing practices. At the time, a few select companies had specific licenses to service different lanes, meaning those companies controlled the roads and took advantage of clients who had little choice in the marketplace. There were massive inefficiencies in the system, and carriers travelled countless miles with empty rigs. As one of Canada’s first load brokers, we reduced cost and worked to eradicate “empty” miles, increased overall efficiencies, and focused on developing long-lasting relationships with our customers. Our dedication to service, safety and performance has paved our way to growth. Over the past 30 years, we have not strayed from our commitment to quality. Today we boast a fleet of state-of-the-art tractors and trailers, all of which are tracked and integrated into our customized operation software. We are also proud of our onsite maintenance and warehousing facility, where we meticulously keep our fleet in top shape. It is this dedication to service, safety and performance that has paved our way to growth
