Nationwide Auto Logistics, LLC is committed to treating all approved carriers with respect and conducting business in a professional manner.

REAL TIME TRACKING:
All carriers must have real-time load tracking and communication capability. Carriers must have the ability to respond to load status requests within a two-hour window.
We inform carriers of approved rates for each lane we travel when posting available freight. The approved rate will again be stated on our printed confirmation notice when a dispatch is assigned. For auction to store transports, approved carriers may be assigned transportation on-site at auctions they choose to attend. All rates are subject to change at any time and without notice.
All transportation invoices are processed in-house. For an invoice to be processed, you must have the signed bill of lading AND an invoice showing the pick-up and delivery locations, along with a minimum of the last 8 digits of the VIN. Failure to provide the required information will result in a delay of your payment. WE WILL NOT PAY FROM A BILL OF LADING.
