As a Horizon contractor you will have access to many features that will help enhance your service to Horizon. Horizon is a transportation company that believes in utilizing the latest automation and communication processes to enhance your ability to service and earn money. These are some of the features that we offer the contractor.
- Automated Dispatch
We post all of our loads to our system the moment the order from the customer is submitted. Subsequent to completing 25,000 consecutive safe delivery miles while maintaining substantial compliance with DOT rules and regulations, an active contractor will have 24/7 access to view and select loads directly through the internet, anywhere in the country. This feature is key to your success. It allows, you, the contractor to be in total control of load commitment decisions. We have many vehicles available from many origin points around the country. This access will allow you the ability to plan where you deliver and help reduce your deadhead.
We communicate very effectively to your e-mail address. Each week we send out an Operational Update that allows our valued contractors information to what is going on, current updates, upcoming events, etc. We feel that it is important to let the contractor know what is going on when it happens. This e-mail communication offers the contractor the chance to make decisions with current factual information.
- Discount Services Partners
When a contractor arrives at Horizon for the first day of orientation, they are given a discount services package that contains discount access to major service providers around the country.
- 2-Day Orientation
Horizon has embraced the belief that if you properly instruct and guide a contractor as to what is expected from the customer, a contractor will be successful. Horizon initiates this belief with a very comprehensive 1 day orientation. Orientation is designed to make sure the contractor understands what services we offer the customer and how to service the customer. We feel that this will allow you to have a more productive and enjoyable time delivering vehicles around the country.
