Transportation Solutions Enterprises (TSE)

Nominated for the 2012 Small Business Influencer Awards in:

TSE was structured in 2011 as the holding company for a brokerage (TSG), a nationwide truckload carrier (F/X) and a logistics management provider (3PLogic). Together, the TSE companies offer over 10 years of expertise and a suite of transportation services designed to maximize value for shippers and carriers alike. In short, TSE acts as an intermediary for companies, facilitating transactional shipments. This year, the TSE companies will arrange over 250,000 loads, service more than 2,000 customers, and partner with its growing network of 16,000 carriers. Since 2001, TSE's companies have grown over 103%, landing the firm on Crain's Top 250 Privately Owned Companies in Chicago list in 2011. TSE attributes its success to its young, aggressive and passionate team members who champion the needs of their customers and carriers daily. The dynamic strength of the three companies allows employees to tap into the wisdom of industry veterans while remaining in touch with the latest technology.

To date, the TSE companies have moved over 75,000 loads for small businesses, in the process, saving them 10-15% annually. As a brokerage with a full truckload carrier, TSE identifies cost saving strategies and coordinates shipments at the lowest price. They also offer less than truckload carriers (LTL) specifically for small businesses. LTL’s transport smaller shipments, and with TSE’s extensive network of LTL’s, they ensure that shipments are moved together, saving their customers money.

The TSE companies work with over 3,450 small businesses nationwide. TSE understands that a sound third party logistics provider is crucial to a small business’ success; if a load doesn’t arrive on time, a business could lose money or customers, so TSE doesn’t fail. TSE ensures that every load arrives on time, no exceptions. They work with small businesses during store openings to guarantee timely shipments, and they provide expedited services when a small business has an inventory shortage.
